Helping lifeguards to locate and rescue drowning victims, to make swimming saver.

42 people drown everyday, even at beaches monitored by lifeguards. Especially on a packed beach with hundreds of people enjoying the water, it can be really difficult to spot a person that is drowning. So how can we help lifeguards to localize and rescue active drowning victims. You can use rush with a wristband or clip it to your swimwear. Once you flip the lever, the alarm goes off and the lifeguards get notified. Microphones in the water can pinpoint your location and then guide the lifeguard through sound via a bone conduction headset. Rush is equipped with a sensor setup that monitors your vital signs and triggers the alarm if it detects that you are drowning. Additionally to being a lifesaver, Rush also works as a key for the lockers at the beach.
