Safe Guard / medicine and healthcare

Safe Guard

A drowning man in swimming poor, will neither wave their hands nor scream for help. In most cases, they die quietly, having no sharp struggle. Therefore, even qualified lifesavers can not perceive that easily and mistake that they just practice diving. This Safe Guards are both for swimmers and lifesavers. Built-in sensor can automatically send alerts to lifesavers once it tests the unusual fluctuation of a simmer’s blood pressure, pulse and heart rate. The safe guard of the lifesaver will shake and alarm and the one in swimmer will shine.
