Collar-Protector / First-aid


About 1% of people worldwide have epilepsy. Collar-Protector is designed for this group, helping them protect themselves and live like a normal person. It is made of rubber, light, soft, small, easy to wear and will cause no attention of others. It works as an auto airbag. When there is a sudden epilepsy seizure, the airbag will inflate and form a fixed shape around the user’s head before he falls to the ground, and protect him in the whole process of attack. Meanwhile, if Collar-Protector detects someone, the speaker will tell them first aid methods. In this way, people around will not panic and provide timely help instead.
