Balloo / emergency signal balloon


At major events such as festivals, people are getting injured every 10 minutes.
Normally, security forces secure the injured person, they call an ambulance and share their approximate location with them. Due to the huge crowd and the associated low visibility, the arriving emergency physicians have trouble finding the accident site immediately. Especially for people who are in a life threatening situation and who need lifesaving measures, delays are not acceptable.
Balloo solves this problem - The product which is carried by the security staff, not only secures, but also communicates the arriving doctors the location of the accident site.
