The description of TapSOS
This could be due to a physical nature – Deaf, deafness, Hard of Hearing, or if you find yourself in a difficult situation, when you cannot, or if it is not safe to speak.
A TapSOS user creates a profile, which is stored on their smartphone. This information is required by the Emergency Call Handler, who receives this information from TapSOS through tapping a series of visual icons, designed to help the TapSOS user in a stressful situation.
Additionally, the user creates a medical profile – again, stored securely on the users device, which can help First Responders gain valuable insight quickly.
The built in GPS function will automatically locate the device, and if needed, allow the user to manually change the location for even greater accuracy.
The user will then answer a series of questions to allow the user to focus, reflect and react in a way which follows Emergency Services protocols.
TapSOS sends alerts straight to the United Kingdom’s 999 Emergency Call Handlers.
