As personal emergency response systems (PERS) rise in popularity, one company is focusing on functional aesthetics to stand out from the pack: invisaWear combines luxury, high-end jewelry with a sophisticated panic button that can connect users directly to 9-1-1.
In 2018, they partnered with RapidSOS to establish a link between their users and their local emergency services. By leveraging RapidSOS’s Voice + Data Connect product, invisaWear charms send the wearers cell phone device location to a list of emergency contacts. If the wearer can’t call for help themselves, emergency contacts are given the option to call 9-1-1 on their behalf.
When the call is made, the wearer’s accurate location, as well as profile information, is immediately sent to first responders via the secure RapidSOS Clearinghouse.
The result is a faster, more accurate emergency response. Not only is the wearer’s exact location shared immediately, their emergency contacts can call for help if the wearer can’t get to the phone. The integration helps invisaWear create a functionally discreet panic button that looks as good as it works.
The partnership is not only a way to differentiate invisaWear from other PERS devices on the market today, it’s a reminder of the commitment they’ve made to their customers – to help create a world without assault. invisaWear is innovating in the panic button space by creating devices that offer tangible, direct connections between their users and public safety.
In the event an invisaWear user experiences a situation in which they need to trigger their panic button, whether they’re being stalked by a stranger, or they get into a car accident and can’t reach their phone, they can access help immediately. And, they don’t have to sacrifice their personal style to get it.
