Echas Lifeline

ECHAS, LLC - Emergency Call for Heart Attack and Stroke is developing a smartphone app to detect signs of a heart attack or stroke that can sometimes occur far from medical services.  The full featured app will include sensors of facial, dexterity and vocal features to help patients know if a stroke or heart attack is in progress.   Validation of the full app is not yet available since it requires a large clinical study leading to FDA approval.

As a next step in the development process, ECHAS has created a FREE app (ECHAS Lifeline) that provides a list of the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke without the need for phone or internet connectivity.  It also provides a button to place a 911 call if the user decides that an emergency exists. The first use of this information app is being offered to Northland Fishing Tackle members.

Apple iPhone users can access the app on the App Store or use this link to download it.  Android users will be able to install through the Play Store app upon Google's approval by May 15th.

ECHAS, LLC is most grateful for your participation in the development of the app, and will in the future, provide full updates including the eventual FDA-approved version free-of-charge.

Thanks for considering participation in this development of an app to reduce the danger of heart attacks and strokes that can be particularly dangerous when they occur in remote locations.

What is the app for?

·  This smartphone will help Northland Fishing Tackle members self-examine potential stroke or heart attack by showing key symptoms through simple illustrations.

How is this customized for you?

·  Fishing often entails being "off the grid" with no internet access.  This app is designed to work without connectivity of any kind so that it can provide useful information in any setting.  The colors and illustrations are designed with high contrast, large/bold font, and with optional narration.


·  Please note that the app does NOT provide professional medical advice


FREE ECHAS Lifeline App for Android will be available May 15th
