The main problems solved by SOS System are problems locating accidents, adequate treatment of victims, and healthcare information for communities.
Unlike the traditional emergency services management system, SOS System is able to locate accidents, with first aid advice given to witnesses in real time by the emergency services before they arrive at the accident, and enables the emergency services to retrieve the victims’ medical history. SOS System also provides users with portable, persistent information about anything related to health, safety, and well-being that they can share with their friends and family on their social network.
