|NANA: Never Alone NAtural device|
| Posted on 30/04/2014 - 16:23|
A combination of an online platform and a wearable device to detect emergency situations, call help and tell to rescuers basic informations before they arrive. Accidental falls, fainting, excessive CO2 are the main problems to address.
The main challenge are the build of a wearable device that can be constantly kept beside to the user without side effect and define correct behaviour for the sensors to prevent false positive alarm. These challenges must be kept in mind since the beginning of the project and must involve people expert in industrial design and health measurements. After these elements we will have to define a platform that can assure users maximum level of privacy (due to sensible data) but in the same time the right information availability.
To summarize the idea we will have to build these macro-elements:
If we'll be successful in receiving the award we will spend time and resources analysing the device project, the sensors integration and the emergency calling procedure.
