Save a Life Makes Final Round in Challenge
Save a Life is a finalist in the Chicago Open Innovation Challenge, in which several people with innovative ideas are competing for $25,000 in grant funding.
Save a Life helps instructors verify CPR competency through Google Glass that guides and tracks proper technique based on visual and auditory prompts. The education tool also has a built-in tool that assists with calling for help, and provides objective metrics on compression rate, rhythm, and depth. The program works by accessing the wearable sensors (gyroscope/accelerometer) in Google Glass to help students achieve metrics through audio and visual feedback in real time.
