Rescue / Lifesaving in public pools


Rescue is a wearable that is controlling your heart rate during a visit in a public pool. It recognizes if you are in the water and if you are moving or not. When you are not moving but your heart rate is very high (or very low) an alarm signal through ultrasonic is going to an outer device placed at the pool's side. From there the lifesaver is contacted directly. He sees where the emergency takes place and can act immediately.
