How might we
help people in emergency situations that do not have quick responses, have easier access to ask for help?

How does it work?
It comes in the form of a button sized pin that acts like a safety pin which connects to a piece of clothing on the user. It has a function where the user twists the side of the pin and then puts their finger in the middle for finger recognition. This reduces chances of accidental clicks and also makes sure that the user is aware that they are clicking or getting another user to track them, so no situation such as stalking occurs.
It is as simple as having an easy to access device for emergency purposes. Not everyone has the accessibility to a phone and/ or a quick method to letting the people you know that you are in need of help. It is also a natural reaction to panic in an emergency situation, and through panic the user will not know or be capable of finding help.
Aiming to appeal to audiences such as day care centres, preschools, elementary schools, parents with young children, and the elderly, this device is easy to use for any age.
