The Circular Emergency (RSA 2019):
Design a product, service or system that uses circular design principles to make emergency medical care more effective.
A pre installed smartphone service collaborating Google and ambulance control, providing help from local first aiders to voluntarily support the struggles paramedic teams face in rural areas.
After dialling 999, the user will receive a notification to offer them further First Aid assistance. They will then be guided through the pre installed app hands free, using voice commands, to locate the nearest available first aider that may be able to attend the incident quicker than an ambulance.
The service is pre-installed so the user does not need any previous knowledge of the service in order to use it. The Design is as minimal as possible to avoid distraction and help the user find help in the most direct way possible.
