Coming into this Hackathon, our main goal was to create a product of utility that serves the disabled. We brainstormed past ideas involving machine learning and resulting in a more passively helpful product; however, we wanted to be more direct in our aid and focused on improving emergency services.
What it does
iNotify is a device that works to detect possible instances of heart attack, seizures, and other debilitating health issues. Our device is intended to be used as a fashion accessory that will record any sudden movement that may indicate danger to one's health. The accelerometer detects movement and responds to another system if a certain acceleration threshold is met or exceeded. Then, authorities and the user's loved ones are informed via phone call and text message (respectively) with all available details.

What's next for iNotify
We want to add a small sound alarm to notify the user of the text generation in case of a false alarm.
