SafetyMate is a product that I've come to rely on if something were to happen. It was created by David Feder after his newborn baby girl stopped breathing. He froze and felt helpless. Fortunately, they were in a hospital and everything was fine. In that moment, David knew that he needed to create a device to help prepare himself and others for any medical emergency.
SafetyMate sent us one of their Talking First Aid Devices to keep our family safe.
The SafetyMate includes eight first aid categories:
Falls, Bone Injury
Poison, Bites, Stings
Those eight buttons lead to 30+ first aid issues. It is amazingly easy to use and talks you through what to do in the event of several different emergencies. As soon as you open the cover, it tells you to call 911 if this is an emergency and then tells you how to use the SafetyMate.
First, you choose which emergency you need help with. I chose CPR for the picture.
It will ask a question and you can hit YES or NO. Depending on your answers, it tells you what to do next. As you can see in the picture, you can pause the instructions, resume when ready, or even repeat the instructions.
I think the SafetyMate is the best idea ever! There are several written first aid manuals that you can keep on hand, but in the event of an emergency you're not going to have time to flip through a book. With the SafetyMate, you simply flip it open and it talks you through what to do. You can even hit repeat if you missed any little detail.
Infant, child, and adult emergencies are all covered with the SafetMate. It is compact and light-weight to fit well in any small space such as a diaper bag or briefcase. I was impressed that they even thought to make the SafetyMate water resistant for outdoor settings. This would provide peace of mind for any family!
You'll need to contact their customer service to purchase the SafetyMate. An optional recharging kit is available that includes a wall/desk mount charging cradle, an AC adaptor,(4) Ni-MH rechargeable batteries, and a vehicle charging cable.
