“With our application you could save a life with just one click. ”

What was for you the reason to register for the preliminaries for ICTalent 2018?
The reason for registering for the ICTalent was to challenge ourselves and try to promote our idea, which in our opinion can save many lives.

How can you best describe your product? What can it do? What does it do?
Our product is a revolutionary idea that gives the user a virtual, hands-on experience in learning CPR. We do this by combining cutting-edge technology, the HoloLens, with CPR training to give a user a new innovative way of learning CPR with the help of visual, audio and text aids. Additionally, in cases of emergencies where a user does not know how to administer CPR, we can immediately connect a user to a certified CPR expert via a 24/7 portal that we offer. This portal allows the expert to see exactly what is happening through a video stream, which can allow the expert to effectively guide the user in administering CPR whilst emergency services are on their way. 

What makes your product so unique?
Our product is unique because currently there are no other applications on the market that offer the services we do and by using our application we can increase the knowledge in people with regards to CPR which in the end will decrease the mortality rate in heart attacks.Furthermore, besides providing an ingenious and efficient way of learning CPR at home and which fits any users schedule, a user can always contact an expert if an emergency should happen. Generally, with our application you could save a life with just one click. 

Why should you win the ICTalent Awards 2018?
We should win because it will promote our application and it could get further developed by people with better resources. If we win it could, spread around the world in any medical center to provide better hospital -victim connectivity and help. It will spread the medical knowledge of performing CPR to anybody without any additional costs or traditional, time consuming courses.

What, if you win the first prize of 5000 euro? How are you going to use the money to develop your product or your talents?
If we win the prize, before we could further develop our product we will first have to invest in ourselves. What we mean by that is, that by using the money we will try to learn as much as possible regarding automation, optimization, artificial intelligence, networking, security which could make our product work better, more efficient, secured, user friendly and accessible. All in all, we will invest in our own education which will contribute in further developing the application.

And… what do you want to tell your competition?
Let’s give our best in this competition and learn as much as possible. Let the best idea win!
