At Apple’s wwdc conference they announced their usual slate of techy things. I was most interested in their discussion on an overhaul of the health app. Sharing with family and health professionals is given. Alerts to them in critical situations like, Walking Steadiness.

I believe the fall alerts from watches are important and now we have notification that a person is at high risk of falling. Let’s prevent the fall from ever happening.
