Tap SOS | App
The British app Tap SOS allows deaf and hard of hearing person to connect with emergency services in a nonverbal way. By creating a profile that includes personal medical history emergency responders can give the best care in the event of an emergency.
When connecting with an emergency service, the app pinpoints the exact location and sends all the data stored in the user’s profile in seconds.
