CardiActEvolving the response effort for victims of Cardiac Arrest
CardiAct is a mobile application designed to reduce response time for victims of cardiac arrest by crowdsourcing assistance from CPR certified individuals near a victim during an emergency. Pairing the application with a supported physical heart monitor will allow it to keep track of a user’s heart rate and detect any abnormalities. The app can even request help automatically if the victim is unresponsive. The application will be used by both the potential victims, and the potential responders. When a user is in need of emergency assistance, they can use the app to request help and responders within a 2 mile radius receives an alert with the victims name, address and estimated time it would take to reach them.
