Dolphin / Smart life-saving device


Dophine is a smart first aid hasp. When users are drowning, Dophine can monitor the changes of brain and ECG. If there is an exception, it will raise the alarm. At the same time Dophine will send the location information off the drowning man to the lifeguards’ phone. Then lifeguards can rescue the drowning man quickly and accurately.
