ProteGear A*LIVE

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A*LIVE is the worlds first smart safety tool for outdoor activities in sports, industry or high-risk scenarios. It mitigates the risks associated with accidents by calling for help even if the user is incapacitated. It smartly detects crash, man-down, deadman-switch and other scenarios to reduce rescue response times by up to 90%. A*LIVE is 100% globally connected -- from the Arctic to Antarctica -- as it uses GSM/4G and Iridium satellite networks. A*LIVE serves as a satellite hotspot for smartphones sending text messages anywhere around the world. It also floats, so can be used at sea.
