IMPECCA INTRODUCES THE ALERT BAND
Wearable Early Warning Fatigue Detector for Drivers — Saves Lives
Comfortable, Lightweight Bluetooth Device Monitors Driver’s Brainwaves to Detect Fatigue with Real-Time Alerts Sent to Androids or iPhones to Wake Up Driver
3-5 Minutes Before Falling Asleep – 90% Accurate
National Highway Safety Administration Estimates Driver Fatigue Contributes to 100,000 Accidents, 1,550 Deaths, 71,000 Injuries & $1.25 Billion in Losses Annually in the U.S.
February 3, 2015, NY, NY — ImpeccaTMwww.impecca.com, a leader of impeccably designed audio, video, digital photo, computer peripherals, and kitchen and home appliances, announced today The Alert Band, a wearable early warning Bluetooth fatigue detector band that attaches to the driver’s forehead to sense fatigue and help prevent accidents. The Alert Band monitors and analyzes brainwaves, sending real-time notifications and alarms to the driver’s smartphone, family and friends, as well as social networks, 3-5 minutesbefore the driver begins to doze off and fall asleep. The notification and alarm are intended to wake him/her up and are designed to save lives.
The Alert Band uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to the driver’s iOS or Android smartphone, transferring raw data collected by The Alert Band’s forehead sensors and transmitting the data to its app on the smartphone. The Alert Band features a smartphone App that uses a numbering system, from 0 to 100 to indicate the user’s fatigue level, sending out an alert when the driver’s fatigue level is too high. 0 indicates fully awake and 100 means you should not be driving, a score of 80 or higher is considered dangerous – and the driver should stop driving and take a rest immediately.
Essential for All Drivers: Truck, Taxi, Subway & Bus, Pilots, Sales People, Vacationers, Commuters, & People with Sleep Deficiencies
User-friendly, Light-weight and comfortable for long periods of use, The Alert Band fatigue detector is essential for alllong distance drivers, including truck, taxi, subway, and bus drivers, sales people, vacationers, commuters, and anyone else that operates a vehicle, boat, or plane for long periods of time, including pilots, boaters, and people who have sleep-deficiency related problems, such as insomnia or sleep apnea.
Your Guardian on the Road — Impecca Conducted Years of Testing — Over 90% Accuracy
According to The National Highway Safety Administration, annually in the U.S., driver fatigue contributes to 100,000 accidents, 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and $1.25 Billion in financial losses. The Alert Band developer experienced these statistics first hand. He created The Alert Band after a friend was severely injured in a car accident when the driver who hit him fell asleep behind the wheel. He decided to create a device that alerts drivers in advance when they’re experiencing fatigue. It also alerts the driver’s family or friends to call or talk to him/her to help stay awake. The device was created by conducting years of testing with hundreds of participants using a simulator for an over 90% accuracy rate. Through EEG brain scanning testing, Impecca saw that the area in charge of fatigue is located in the forehead, so they created a user-friendly thin forehead device that, unlike most unwieldy EEG units, easily attaches to the forehead and is easy to use and comfortable to wear for long periods.
