Did you know every 44 seconds someone in the U.S. suffers from a heart attack?

Heart Attacks can often go undetected and our bracelet will help detect and potentially save lives. Every 44 seconds someone in the United States suffers from a heart attack. That is about 700,000 annually. 210,000 of those heart attacks are not a first time happening. White our bracelet people will pie able to detect and pervert a heart attack. The purpose of this product is to lower the death of people who have heart attacks. Also to get immediate help for people who need it.

| Our Solution

Our technology is a smart-bracelet. The design of this bracelet is a wristband that will fit snugly onto someone's wrist without rubbing or making marks. The bracelet comes in a variety of designs, ranging from being decorated in gemstones or casual for everyday life. There is a flat top (like a watch) with a touch screen. It could come in many colors. It will be small yet noticeable with a sleek look. The bracelet will look like any other watch or bracelet, so people don't feel self concourse about it but it will have many features. It will also be waterproof so people can take showers or swim.

We put a micro-chip in the main coronary artery

The bracelet will carry some essential features. This bracelet will be wirelessly connect to a chip attached to the heart. This chip will have to be placed in by surgery to be effective. This chip will be placed on the coronary artery. These are the arteries that cause heart attacks from the build of plaques blockage. This chip will keep track of teh plaque levels, so you can check at any time, or be alerted if the levels become too high. The bracelet will also be wirelessly connected to a phone app. When the bracelet detects something it will send an alert to your phone as well as your choice of family/friend.

Pulse Tracker

Another important feature is on the part of the bracelet that will will keep track of the person's pulse. If the pulse begins to drop rapidly or increase. This will be located at the bottom of the bracelet on the inside so it is pressed on the pulse in the wrist area.


Another feature will be a small, yet powerful, speaker on the top of the bracelet. This speaker will make a beeping noise when it detects that a heart attack may be about to happen.

If the person does not press the top of the bracelet with in a minute the beeping will increase in volume. If the person has already passed out the beeping will let people around the person that they are having a heart attack. On the very top of the bracelet there will be a touch screen. This touch screen is one of the most important parts of the whole design. When the bracelet beings to think that something is wrong the screen will light up and ask if it needs to call the hospital. If the person clicks ‘yes’ and near by hospital will be asked to send an ambulance as soon as possible. If they do not answer ‘no’ within 60 seconds, the bracelets will call an ambulance automatically without a confirmation. If the bracelet detects that someone's pulse is not normal it will let out a small alert and the person can silence it if the know the cause and are already taking control of the situation.If the person has already passed out the screen will begin to flash as the speaker is blaring. If someone near by sees it happening, they can press the bracelet and the speaker will instruct the person how to do first aid on the passed out person. While this is all happening, an ambulance is already being sent over.

There are many risks involved in this product. This whole bracelet is relying on a chip implanted on someones heart. If this chip malfunctions, breaks, or looses connection the bracelet will not work. If the surgery to implant the chip goes wrong or is too expensive that could also be an issue, especially in the area close to the heart. If the bracelet looses battery that could also be an issue. One other problem is that the design might be to chunky and people wouldn't want to wear it. People who are prone to heart attacks often also have diabetes. People who are diabetic can often have loss of limbs or sight. This could also place a risk. They might have a wrist to put a bracelet on or they can not see the warnings on the screen.

One more big challenge is keeping people aware. Most of the time, if someone is prone to a heart attack, they have been taught what to look out for. However, with a device like this people have a tendency to become lazy and dependent on their technology. We need to make sure that they are aware of the risks that are involved and that this is a tool to work as assistance, not to completely control your health.

Technological Challenges are part of every invention

Technological resources could include the advisement of the Apple Watch. This product will branch of the Apple Watch, by Apple, to help people will disease. The designe will also be roughly the same. Some technological challenge may include the chip in the bracelet and the connection the bracelet has. If a phone is out of the connection of the bracelet alerts may not be able to be sent. Some of the challenges we must overcome are making sure the product is accessible to anyone, no matter their disability. We can use something like apple’s voiceover for the blind and clear displays for the deaf. We would also need to make sure the chip is constantly working, so we would need to create a way for it to be tested every hour or so. We would have to create technology much smaller than anything available today, so it would be disguised and everyone would feel comfortable wearing it. In this technology we would need much coding and computing to create the technology and the software. We would also have to create an app for the phone. This would need much computer science skills.
