First aid armlet

Toronto - Submitted by Sebastian on Jan 24 2014

Our elderly loved ones are at higher risk of getting a stroke or heart attack. The first aid armlet will detect emergency situations, initiate every possible first aid action and share as much information with EMS as possible. The seconds or minutes gained by faster help can be critical.

NOW it's your turn...

Create a prototype - a concept image, comic strip, map, video interview, Arduino project, or any kind of made media or object that helps other players better understand this idea!

If we think as makers, can the armlet be made with open-source hardware, to reduce costs and improve access to the tech?

What resources would you need to mobilize to make this future real?

is there room in this idea for nearby (trusted?) citizen responders to help?

Drones could be used as super fast early responders to determine how critical the situation is. Depending on how advanced the drone tech is, they may even be able to administer first aid.

i agree with Captain, we have to think of other nearby to help. let's synchronize elderly to help each other in emergencies

at least in UK emergency services are over-burdened already. i think in Syncronicity, neighbors have to be notified to help in emergency situations

who pays? i love the idea of open-source hardware. except how can we as makers verify accuracy?
