Founded in partnership with the Autism Society of Minnesota, Vitals™ launched in August 2017 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
What is Vitals™?
Vitals™ is a paid, app-based technology that provides first responders and police with real-time information about vulnerable individuals living with emotional, intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Users can add information to their profile, all of which is completely voluntary.
How Does Vitals™ Work?
An individual using the Vitals™ service carries a beacon that is synced to secure information about that individual (the Vitals™ Profile App also serves as a non-physical beacon).
When an authorized first responder, educator or provider comes within 80 feet of the individual, they receive an alert through their smartphone via their Vitals™ App notifying them about that individual and their specific needs.
The Vitals™ profile provides information to help these authorized users make informed decisions on how to safely interact and communicate with individuals.
The Vitals™ app can provide authorized first responders with the following information:
Behavior triggers and de-escalation techniques
Primary and secondary conditions
Videos and photos
