 5Star Urgent Response by Great Call- Review

5Star Urgent Response by Great Call- Review



20130212-115201.jpg

    • Watch The Video

5Star Urgent Response is a personal safety app available for iPhone and Android, and is also available as a small portable cellular device for those who don’t have a smart phone. This review was done using the portable cellular device but the same services can be accessed using the smartphone apps.

5Star is a personal safety system – so it is designed to be used by one person. There are many different situations where this may be useful – for an elderly person living on their own, a woman travelling by herself, a teenager or college student, but in this review I am going to concentrate on its use for a child.

If you have a child who is old enough to be allowed out by themselves, as a parent you worry about them keeping safe, and about them being able to get help if they need it. 5Star is a great way to give you peace of mind about this. If they have a smartphone you can set the app up for them, but if they are too young for a smartphone, or you don’t want them to have a cellphone yet, the 5Star cellular device is a great alternative.

You start by setting up a profile on the Great Call website, it is password protected and HIPPA compliant so that their personal information is protected, but allows important information to be available  and easily accessed in case of an emergency. You fill in information about emergency contacts, doctors, medical information and who is allowed to locate the child in an emergency.

Once this is all set up they can start using the device. It is small enough to easily fit in a pocket, and has a strong clip (like that on a pager) that lets you securely clip it to a belt or backpack. It is very simple to use – it just has one large central button. If the child needs assistance they press the central button and a Great Call operator immediately comes on the line, asks them some questions to confirm their identity and asks what kind of help they need. If it is a real emergency they can press and hold the central button and the call goes straight to 911. There is no way for the child to accidentally switch it off as it has no on/off switch – it is always on when charged. The device stays charged for several days and when the battery is getting close to needing charging a warning beep starts – intermittently at first then getting more frequent as the battery is closer to running out.

One thing I really like is that it has a built in GPS tracker, so if for instance your child is visiting a friend after school, and you want to be sure they arrived safely without disturbing them,  you can go online and check their location. You set up who is allowed access to the account, so only those you authorize can use this to check his location. It is also useful he if looses the responder and you are trying to find where he left it! I tested this out in many different locations over a large geographic area and found it very accurate. In many cases it was able to get the exact street address or at least very close by.

There are lots of situations where the Great Call can come in useful for a child. If they miss their bus home or mum is late picking them up from school if they can talk to the Great Call operator who will call mum or dad (or any emergency contact listed) to get them help and also to reassure them and tell them when their ride will arrive and what to do in the meantime. They can also use it if they are being bullied and need help or if they have got lost and need directions or someone to come and find them. It is also useful if they have a phone and it has run out of batteries and they need to call mom or dad. Because all their important medical information is stored there they can also use it to get advice if they are sick, injured or have allergies. In the case of a medical problem they have registered nurses available to give advice, and can call the emergency services if necessary. Once they have called the Great Call operator the operator will stay on the line with them until the situation is resolved and they have the help they need.

I have called the Great Call responders several times and always found them very helpful, reassuring and knowledgeable.They are willing to help you find out any information you need and stay talking to you until the issue is resolved. I have carried the responder myself when travelling alone on long train journeys and when out at night on my own. It definitely gave me peace of mind knowing I had help available at the touch of a button if I got lost or felt threatened in any way. It also gave my loved ones peace of mind that that could check on my location to see I was on my way, even when I was unable to call them.

Overall, I think this is a great service.  As a parent I feel this is a great idea for use with teens and tweens, who want their independence,  as it gives them a great safety net. It allows them to have a easy way of getting help or assistance anytime they need it, and also gives parents the peace of mind that they can check where the child is anytime they are worried about them. It is also useful for adults, especially the elderly or infirm, who live alone, and for women who regularly travel or are out alone, and need extra security and peace of mind.

The Lucky Escape is the story of two girls that end up shrinking down and traveling through their brother’s digestive system, all the while learning about this important body system.  The print version was released with a CD that narrates the story, read by the author’s children.

This is an excellent educational title designed by a Naturopath and mom to educate kids in a fun way about their bodies.  Human Body Detectives (HBD) is a series she created, with “The Lucky Escape” detailing a trip down the digestive system.  It is detailed and medically accurate, with illustrations that are both richly colored and authentic looking depictions of the inside of the body.

Aimed at 6-10 year olds, this title is definitely enjoyable for those both younger and older.  As an adult I found it fascinating and my son, who’s only four, was completely enthralled with the idea of traveling through all those icky places and then narrowly ‘escaping’ before being pushed out into a poopy diaper.  It’s not hard to see why the print version won a “Mom’s Choice Award” in early 2010.

The only thing different about the print version of this book, is that it came with an educational workbook.  I’m not sure how this workbook would translate to the iPad, but if it’s as good as the reviews of it, then I would be happy to pay more to get the whole title. [There were four reviews, all 5 stars, from readers at Amazon.com]  It’s certainly complete without this workbook, but when I saw the preview of the print version, I realized it would be nice to at least have the glossary and detailed description of digestion to complete this educational title.

Like many other PicPocket book titles, this one does not have interactive or animated elements, but it really doesn’t need them.  It is however, just the type of story that might be very interesting with a little animation or interactivity to explore the body’s systems.  But then again, it might just be gross. 🙂
