Veteran Climber Develops Smartphone App to Detect Altitude Sickness
Tusker Trail founder Eddie Frank releases first app of its kind aimed at preventing serious medical conditions on high altitude climbs.
Developed by Tusker Trail’s founder and owner Eddie Frank, the Altitude AMS Check’s functionality is based on his vast experience climbing at altitude and can be a lifesaving tool to trekkers. For only $3.99 – available for iPhones and Android devices – it is the only smartphone app out there that can accurately diagnose someone’s condition at altitude.
With a focus on climbing safety, unmatched logistics, Tusker Trail is a true veteran in the industry. Frank has more than 38 years of high altitude experience on Kilimanjaro. In developing this app, he drew on his own extensive Kilimanjaro experience and consulted with numerous high altitude doctors and researchers in the field of high altitude medicine. The app guides users through a series of questions regarding symptoms. Based on the answers, the app tells the user whether or not they have altitude sickness, and provides suggestions for treatment. With a prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment as advised by Altitude AMS Check, trekkers can avoid a life-threatening situation.
Tusker Trail runs guided treks around the world, most notably on Mt. Kilimanjaro. With a 99% summit success rate, Frank and his guides offer unmatched support for high altitude climbs. Tusker’s professional, medically-trained mountain guides monitor climbers every step of the way and are considered the best on the mountain. Their guides are drilled and mountain-ready to save lives during high altitude emergencies, using effective medical evacuation techniques. Climbers can be assured that Tusker Trail’s guides receive the most extensive medical training in the business.
