Quebec – Recently launched on Kickstarter, Ripple promises to help keep people safe through its wearable device.
The team behind Ripple has created a wearable device that allows consumers to connect at any time to operators at healthcare provider Tunstall. Users activate the discreet device by clicking it once for a callback or three times if there is an emergency, in which case the team will contact the emergency services.
Designed by brand consultancy Pearl Studios, the product uses geolocation to find users in their time of need. Situations when Ripple may be required include when walking home alone or during a medical emergency.
On subscription, individuals can enter personal information, such as whether they have allergies or medical conditions, or if they are taking any medicines, which will be passed on to the paramedics.
In a world of connected devices, consumers are seeking out the human touch. Brands such as Ripple are responding to this desire with hybrid Personal Appsistants, which combine the power of technology with personal interaction.
