Emergency Wearable, a step forward in women empowerment

Violence against women has been just rife for centuries, worldwide. It is a peculiarly intimate kind of abuse engraved in private relationships, conducted behind closed doors and that, very often, spills over into the public streets.

"Emergency Wearable" is our remedial initiative to resist this global problem. It is a bracelet equipped with a button that allows any woman wearing it to send a notification in case of a potential threat to a call center; that will, thereafter, contact an appropriate relative or friend, a help association or police.

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
