As the world gets hotter, what issues will the elders face in 2050?

Everywhere around the globe, cases of heat-related elderly deaths are increasing as the temperature gets higher each year. If the temperature continues to rise, then in the year 2050 this problem would aggravate significantly. Our design begins with the most urgent situation and develops an emergency kit to reduce heat-related risks.

1 Real-time detection of biological status and environment with appropriate alerts and suggestions.
2 If any emergency should happen, the device will send out 911 calls to hospitals and people close by.
3 People around may conduct CPR or other rescue methods according to instructions provided by the bracelet. Kit also works with public facilities in cooling patient.
4 Cooling devices include: Phase Change Material, hydration kit, and fan.

The kit provides any-time/place protection and the necessary tools to help relieve symptoms during the wait for rescue.
