Lincoln based IOT start up Tended have this week made it through to the Tech Nations Rising Stars Final after successfully pitching their concept to a panel of industry leaders.
Tended Protect is a wrist-worn wearable safety device which monitors the movements of the user through artificial intelligence and has the ability to learn and detect ‘abnormalities’, such as a fall or strong impact. If the user does not or cannot respond to the device’s safety check, then an alert will be sent to the user’s nominated emergency contact with GPS location, health and activity information and will open the channel for live audio with the wearer.
The project is the brainchild of Leo Scott Smith, who began developing the idea at just 22-years-old. Leo added “We’re so proud to be among the top 20 to have made it through to Tech Nations Rising Stars Final! Congratulations to all the other finalists and thank you Tech Nation. See you in March! “
