Introducing a revolutionary personal audio alert device that could save your life!
The Press Don't Panic audio button allows the wearer to record a personal message containing emergency procedure and/or essential medical information, in any language. This can then be played back whenever the wearer requires assistance. Playback can be initiated by the wearer or by those offering assistance.
This revolutionary device is designed primarily for those with conditions (epilepsy, diabetes, allergies, asthma etc.) which make it likely that they may require assistance while out and about, from members of the public who don't have any medical training.
Those assisting will then know what to do, who to contact and how to administer any medication the wearer may be carrying. This could, in some cases, be lifesaving.
The Press Don't Panic audio button is a small device which can be worn conveniently. It is easily attached to outer clothing belt, bag or lanyard. It is lightweight and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
It features the following key attributes:
Record personal audio message via a simple
120 seconds record time available time
to record specific instructions, medical information and contact details
Message can be recorded in any language
ideal for foreign holidays
Clear and audible play back
Repeated play back of recorded message
Ability to re record a new message

medication and seizure anxiety.
They also led to
some very legitimate concerns: What can I do if I suddenly feel the onset of a
seizure, or one starts before I can alert anyone? How can I advise anyone who
may wish to offer assistance of my condition and the most appropriate action?
the vast majority of the public (including bus drivers, hotel and catering
staff etc.) have little if any experience of; epileptic seizure, diabetic shock
and/or coma, anaphylactic shock due to allergies or insect bites/stings, Sam
looked for a product that could help him alert people to what to do and just
as importantly what not to do in the event of an emergency.
to be only a few alternatives: a small card which is kept in a pocket or
handbag; a medallion or wrist bracelet. Each of these have their own
that the technology existed to create a much better, more obvious and more
functional alternative; an audio button, worn on an outer layer of clothing.
He spent the
next four years designing and developing the Press Don't Panic audio button.
