My idea is for disabled and elderly people to have on their wrist or around their neck an emergency alarm system with GPS capability. This would allow the emergency services to attend to them where ever they are and notify their relatives in an emergency. We already have call24 who covers us whilst indoors, they have all medical and relative information on people, so this would be an extension of their work. With today's modern technology this will provide security, freedom and confidence as well as peace of mind to their families.

Insight & Impact

I have suffered a stroke and I know a lot of people with other disabilities and I believe the impact of this product would mean that disabled people or more confidence and independently happier.
