Losing a family member to a stroke put this medical emergency close to my heart. My nan became incapacitated, and due to human-error when someone tried to check on her, she spent over 12 long hours in an arm-chair whilst she should have been receiving medical attention. The permanent neurological damage was too severe and she died three days later.
We will never know how different the outcome could have been if emergency services were contacted sooner.
Strokes are hereditary which means my family and I are more at risk of experiencing this in our lifetime.
There are a huge range of personal alarm systems available, but if you hadn’t experienced any warning signs in the past, you’d probably find it difficult to justify the huge cost.
Even seemingly healthy people could face being incapacitated when most in-need.
Personal alarms and panic buttons cost $1000s over time.
Please help me in making them to accessible to anybody with a smartphone.
