IMST and caveor develop 'panic button' jewellery accessory

Together with its Dutch partner Caveor, IMST is working on a panic button for elderly care that is disguised as a jewellery accessory, an can therefore be worn on an everyday basis.

The development is revolutionary in the way it links up with smartphones or tablets via the latest Bluetooth 4.0 standard. A second smartphone - at a control centre or held by another individual - receives the alarm call. The smartphone is worn on the body, so the product can be used outdoors without restriction.

Beyond elderly care, there are various conceivable applications in high-performance and extreme sports.

The product, called 'Abel', has already entered the testing phase, and will be on the market by the end of this year.
