HELPME / HELPME

HELPME
HELPME

Targeted towards people with weak hearts or heart disorders, this product can be used as a mobile phone accessory or worn as a necklace, which will be activated with the occurrence of an emergency situation: heart attack. Activation of the system (pulling HELPME apart as indicated by the arrows marked) automatically connects to 911 & the person’s mobile contacts, sending out a loud siren requesting for help. Once somebody comes to help and turns off the siren, it provides easy-to-follow intuitive audio guidelines for heart attack emergency treatment. The helper performs the emergency treatment following the audio guidelines until 911 arrives.
