Vevios is the future safety alarm for elderly and chronically ill. Vevios works like a wearable cell phone and enables to secure communication between user and Homecare. This mobile safety alarm creates a freer and safer everyday life.
The inaccuracies with today’s safety alarms are there because they have not been technically upgraded since the 1970s. Through analysis and investigations, I have identified the three main problems that at times prevent the essential contact function of the present alarms. Vevios solves these three main problems since it improves Communication, Design and Ergonomics.
Since Vevios is wearable in its design it will not only appeal to elderly and chronically ill but also to other user groups in need of safety and security in their everyday life. This includes exposed individuals for crime prevention or witness protection, for people working with risky professions, for extreme sports or for children groups in Day-care. Therefore, the future market for Vevios is vast. The response to Vevios safety alarm has been very positive since it represents a new type of wearable mobile technology and the demand of safety is huge.
