Emergency Wearable, the bracelet that keeps you safe

At home or in the street, the violence perpetrated against women is a global issue raging both in the public space and in the private sphere.

“Emergency Wearable” is our solution to face this problem. The bracelet includes a button that the user can press on when she needs help. It will directly send a notification with the location of the victim to a dedicated call center for example. The call center will contact the appropriate person such as relative, an association or even the police.

The main purpose is to keep women safe by calling for help in an easy way and a shorter time.

Emergency Wearable measures combined variables in order to detect situation of stress and danger such as:

  • The heartbeat
  • The temperature
  • The geolocation
  • The speed and level of fall

But progressively, we're seeing a more human-centric category of IoT activity starting to emerge. It's less about automation and more about personal augmentation and safety. We're talking about smart solutions that save lives: all lives on earth.
