A new type of wearables has been designed to assist consumers in protecting themselves against physical attack.
The risk of a physical attack is present in nearly any place and at any time, so a new type of wearable technology has now been developed in order to provide some practical benefit to the wearers and to provide useful advantages in that type of situation.
The new wearables were developed by Kat Alexander, who created the Siren Ring.
Alexander explained that “I was taking a shortcut and a man crossed my path and began to deliberately walk towards me.” Fortunately, she was able to escape the problem, but she did not leave the experience entirely behind herself. She created the Siren Ring, which is a piece of wearable technology that can be twisted in order to activate an alarm that sounds at 110 decibels.
This wearable technology is built to shock a potential attacker and to cause him or her to experience sensory overload.
According to the owner of Command Excellence, John Sakoian, the shock from the noise of the ring could overload the senses of a potential attacker, which could be very handy in helping to make an escape. The company is provides local safety consulting services. He stated that it is a bright idea to use this wearable tech because it is easily accessible whenever the wearer requires it, even in an emergency.
Though the ideal option is to call 911 in the case of an emergency, using a cell phone to reach the police, in the event that an individual is in true danger, taking out a smartphone and making a phone call may not be entirely possible.
The Siren Ring has a special alert button that can be activated through a smartphone app, as well. This mobile app opens up a number of additional features that can be accessed with the thumb. It offers various help features and panic buttons. There is a special wearable technology pod that can be placed on the body that can provide automatic injury detection in the event that a violent crime should occur.
