If need be, they can also get access to an ambulance rushed to the emergency location as fast as possible, the statement added.

To avail the service, all that one needs to do is to download the free app from Google Play store and feed it with some personal data including name and age, provide numbers of five of your friends and activate the SOS button in case of emergency, Sreevalsan Menon, founder and CEO of Medikoe, said.

"Living independently in metro cities these days can be risky for older adults, senior citizens or ailing individuals. Moreover, we come across cases of emergencies like road accidents quite often. When we encounter, finding the right number to call in a hurry becomes tough," Menon said. The Medikoe app aims to fill this gap, he pointed out.
