More than once in one’s lifetime, one person will come across someone in need of immediate help.
It could be a child that got lost, or an elder in need.It could be someone having a crisis or even a stroke.
While the scenarios are numerous, they all require immediate response.
In the vast majority of cases such as the above, the person in need will not be able to communicate. Most people while enduring a shock or a crisis are not able to identify themselves or their condition accurately.
Hence, even if a first responder attempts to help, they will not be able to access the kind of information that could make the difference between life and death. People with chronic diseases or allergies could respond in unexpected ways to medication so it is vital for the paramedics to know the exact medical condition of the victim.
Thetap2SOS bracelet provides instant access to data for the identification of the wearer enabling first responders to communicate with relatives, care givers and authorities. Tap2sos is a reliable solution for patients with diabetes, for the elderly, for unaccompanied children, for people requiring special attention, for people with disabilities, for people with chronic diseases or terminal conditions, for Alzheimer patients and for many othersin need of providing identification information "on the spot".
Blockchain reassures data transparency by reconciling every alteration that happens within its network - each group of transactions is known as a 'block'. Each copy is automatically updated avoiding the hassle of multiple versions amongst users. Each user holds a unique key ID providing him access to a specific unit of information on the blockchain.
Two important properties result from this: 1. Transparency data is embedded within the network as a whole, by definition it is public. 2. It cannot be corrupted altering any unit of information on the blockchain would mean using a huge amount of computing power to override the entire network.
Tap2sos is a simple, innovative and most importantly low cost solution, available "on demand", activated by a tap of a smartphone. It is a simple IoT (internet of things), M2M (machine to machine) product, developed using a combination of the latest technologies in Cloud computing,
able to ensure your data safety using Blockchain Technology while maintaining mobile connectivity and communication networks for smartphones.
Tap2SOS uses LTO Network for the data integrity and accountability part of the solution.
LTO Network optimized its public blockchain for lightweight transactions only (i.e. anchoring of hashes) and, thus, excels in speed and efficiency. Anchoring is a cheap and easy way to timestamp data that is generated in existing (legacy) medical systems. The anchoring process provides a higher level of transparency, without over-complicating or changing the existing process. Furthermore, LTO Network is built with data privacy, such as GDPR regulations, by design. LTO Network never puts data on-chain, since the data is hashed before anchoring. The data is never stored on the blockchain. Hence, all information can be deleted at any given moment. This regulation compliance is crucial for the case when it comes to dealing with sensitive information such as medical records and data, which require the highest form of data security.

It is a simple technological solution that helps to direct information and use health information of a user. It provides easy access to information on basic data such as name, surname, age, blood type, a specific disease by monitoring the user's medical file. With a simple smartphone the necessary information is accessible via NFC (Near Field Communication) system which is pre-installed in most smartphones.
The information provided by the system is classified. Only basic information is accessible without a password and just for an emergency use. All other information is safe with a code known to the user and the related doctor or hospital/clinic.
Any hospital or nursing (or healthcare companies or insurance companies) unit can agree to be integrated into the tap2sos system by signing a simple information management protocol. It requires no special investment from hospitals/clinics and that is because the system has an open architecture.
