Though first aid kits are common household staples, without the proper training they don't serve much of a purpose. 'Gale', the new smart, portable and integrated health center from California-based 19labs, is a first aid kit that takes advantage of technology to train consumers on the spot.
Gale is stocked with supplies just like all first aid kits, however its Internet connectivity lets users restock directly on the touchscreen interface. It also provides interactive, step-by-step guides to teach people proper use of the many medical supplies that it contains. And if the first aid emergency is beyond the capabilities of the person on hand, Gale can call family, friends or emergency services with one touch.
By making first response healthcare easier for regular people, Gale uses the Internet of Things to create safer environments anywhere and everywhere.
