Avail fastest possible ambulance service with 'LifeHover' app


According to the bulletin of the World Health Organization, the likelihood of death after injury is up to six-fold greater because of delay in a low and middle-income country than in a high-income country.

This disparity can be partially attributed to the relatively poor quality of trauma care in these countries - a problem often generated by poor levels of development, organization and planning and a scarcity of programmes for the improvement of trauma care.

In the current scenario of our country, ambulances reach the location of emergency in about 30-45 minutes due to traffic, congestion and distant location of ambulance dispatching point. Most of the times, the duration of first aid elongates to a fatal extent due to these external factors resulting in loss of life.

Looking into the fact how serious this problem is and where do we stand as a developing country, basic health care is one of the most ignored and much needed issue to be acted upon.

To cure this problem, LifeHover App has come up with a solution which sends ambulance from the nearest ambulance operator or the closest ambulance available to the patient's location in 10-15 minutes.

It is the fastest possible ambulance service till date. Moreover, providing flexibility to choose preferred hospital is a blessing, because reaching the desired hospital is one of the biggest challenges individuals face otherwise.

A reliable ambulance calling App, which empowers its users with a precise provision of ambulances, is the need of the hour. It is distinctly designed for patient transport, basic life support (bls), advance life support (als) and mortuary.

It aims to overcome the challenge of availing a good ambulance and thereafter, procuring the desirable hospital.

"Till date, we are not at par with World Health Organization's trauma care standards because ambulances we have dispatch from faraway locations. Time can save lives; it's high time we understand this," said Co-Founders LifeHover App, Prerit Mittal, Rajvot Singh Arora and Pranav Bajaj.

"It is as easy as booking a cab on your mobile phone. We don't want users to compromise in getting the ambulance in time for their loved ones. With this app you can get your specialized ambulance within minutes," added Prerit.
