VerticalMan App checks the Man Down situation, allows to continuously monitor the posture of the worker. If the inclination exceeds an angle and it is maintained for a period of time, VerticalMan warns locally with a visual and an acoustic alarm and notifies it remotely (via SMS, web service, email, phone or VoIP call ).
The user has some seconds (configurable) to stop the alarm and prevent a wrong remote notification.
The Android device with VerticalMan must be worn on belt with an opportune case for the device.
The application also controls the worker’s immobility, the device’s battery charge and the connectivity availability for remote notifications.
The targets of this system are principally lone workers, who haven’t a colleague and who operate without continuous contact with other people.

All lone workers need the VerticalMan’s supervision.

VerticalMan is a Man Down Android App, that controls the vertical posture of lone workers that can operate in outdoors or indoors.
When the device exceeds the configured angle it is considered in alarm and the operator VerticalMan alerts the rescuer through GSM phone or VoiP call, SMS, email, or by calling the alarm management system of the corporation (via web call). All of these communication channels could be activated simultaneously by the alarm.
