What is Band Aid ?

Band Aid is an application that syncs with a Microsoft Band and was created to help those in need discreetly report domestic violence. By wearing a Microsoft Band the user will allow our application to track their gravitational juxtaposition and heart rate to detect stress. When stress is identified a pop up will appear on the band screen to offer help at the tap of the wrist.

Skin Temperature Readings

By tracking skin temperature we can determine if the user is experiencing higher stress levels.

On/Off/Auto

The application can be turned off so it does not disturb the user during exercise.

Heart Rate Monitor

Elevated and sporadic heart rate is linked to elevated stress levels.

Custom Actions

Some women aren't ready to report to police. You can customize your alert to contact friends instead.
