The Uepaa App – Alpine Safety is there for you because accidents can happen. Unfortunately, accidents happen on the trail, far away from anything. We’ve had a few and thankfully none have been seriously enough to warrant rescue, but if we did, we’d want this little app backing us up. The Uepaa App began its illustrious career due to the simple fact that accidents can and do occur. Developed in Zurich, Switzerland, this little app integrates an alert and tracking rescue service into your almighty smartphones. It enables the troubled to call for rescue anywhere (including those areas not covered), all with disruptive wireless Peer2Peer2Peer communication network developed by ETH Zurich. It also features a very cool Buddy Aid accident alert and Automatic Accident Detection (deploys if you can not engage it), and a 24/7 Emergency Center connection. Awarded the ISPO Digital BrandNew winner for 2014, this little App is available in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France and Italy; and will soon be rolled out into the UK and beyond. We hope this app makes its way westward cause’ this is one little app that would benefit us all.
