This tiny device will be worn by the people that we care the most like for instance, our elderly mom and dad or maybe our grand parents. The device has  a big panic button and it’s so small, it can be worn on the neck like a necklace. Every device is hooked up to a monitoring system managed by the people at the call centers. The call center people will check up on you if there’s any medical emergency and will call the appropriate authorities and emergency support depending on the problem faced by the device bearer.
