This project is based on personal experiences with personal alarms in a number of traumatic experience. Research showed that other victims experienced some of the same issues. The biggest issue is the personal alarm often isn’t used in emergency situations because it isn’t possible to call for help without the perpetrator knowing.

Research showed victims:
Feel they have lost control of their life

- Can’t reach help in emergency situations

- Don’t have overview of their opportunities

- Waist a lot of time collecting technical evidence

- Feel alone and think their situation is unique

After reflected on the discovered issues the team found a potential to create a collected solution which makes victims feel powerful in a higher degree take the back the control in their life. A lifeline they can reach when needed and at the same time invisible to their surroundings.
