ActivBeacon uses GPS and motion sensing accelerometers in the iPhone to detect a fall or other issues.
ActivBeacon works anywhere you have the internet on your phone. Running, walking or riding your bike, ActivBeacon is able to message your designated contacts with your GPS location.
ActivBeacon is a iPhone based personal safety beacon. The concept of using an iPhone was simple. It is a descrete device that you always have close to you and inside are many sensors that determine your location and movement.
You can set it up and be protected in three simple steps. Once ActivBeacon is running on your phone you do not need to do anything. ActivBeacon detects if you fall and will send the emergency messages automatically.
Luckily his mate Rob showed up a minute or so after the accident. Toby was in ragged shape, Rob called for emergency services. Toby had shattered his right hand, a deep 5" cut on his shin, punctured his chest and his helmet (Giro) had fractured and saved his brain. Somehow, much to the surprise of the hospital, he had managed not to suffer any significant internal injuries.
He was lucky. What is if Toby had been on his own?
What if he had been knocked unconscious?
Over the past year Toby and the product team at zeezao have been developing a product called CareBeacon. It is a medical monitoring device for the elderly and people at risk of falling. It knows if you are moving or if you have fallen an sends for help automatically to designated family and friends. The CareBeacon team has been able to apply this automated technology to help people participating physical activities to help keep them save when they are running, walking, riding or sliding solo.
The result is ActivBeacon, an easy to use subscription based automated alert service for the iPhone. If you crash or have an incident it sends your details and location to family and friends.
