Epilepsy Canada Announces Partnership with Code4Armour™ to Bring a Ground-Breaking Service to Benefit People during a Seizure
TORONTO, Ont., March 19, 2015 – Epilepsy Canada announces a unique partnership with Code4Armour™ to bring a life-saving service to the Epilepsy community that can literally speak for those who are unable to speak for themselves during an aura, ictal and postictal phases of a seizure.
Code4Armour™ is a wearable device and mobile app that gives emergency response professionals instant access to your Vital Personal Health Information (VPHI), controlled and managed by your caregiver, family member or by yourself. As or when your condition changes, the system allows for immediate update to the profile. These factors give the family the peace of mind that loved ones are protected in case of an emergency. March is Epilepsy Awareness Month. Through this most important month Epilepsy Canada and Code4Armour™ are offering this wearable device free of charge to Canadian families with any donation of $25 or more. Recipients can purchase an annual subscription for as little as $48/year.
“Our community often tells us that their biggest concern during an episode is that their loved one is safe and treated appropriately,” explains Gary Collins, Executive Director, Epilepsy Canada. “Code4Armour™ actually tells professionals who you are, who to call, your typical seizures length and any other pertinent information.”
No other solution in today’s market speaks for you when you are unable to speak for yourself. Code4Armour VitalSpeak literally announces, through the speaker of a smartphone or tablet, life-saving information about your condition to emergency response professionals that can improve outcomes.
Code4Armour Co-founder and VP of Marketing Justin Phillips emphasizes, “We’ve developed breakthrough technology that surpasses existing current static medical bracelets and additionally provides a live and dynamic medical profile accessible 24/7/365.” About Epilepsy Canada:
