    Safe Voice: Protecting children from burn injuries using sound and light technology

    Issue and Problem

    Most children in the home express a natural and normal curiosity about objects that can cause burn injuries such as ovens, electricity and hot water. Every year, many children are treated and die in hospital emergency rooms.

    NFP : People's Burn Foundation

    The mission of the People's Burn Foundation is to provide advocacy services to burn survivors and loved ones, and to educate our youth and communities with effective burn prevention programs.


    Safe Voice is an everyday bracelet for children that uses the parent's voice and a light emitting technology to warn the child about burn injuries when they get close to dangerous objects.

    Intended benefit

    Safe Voice will play the role of parents when the child is in danger, I hope to decrease the number of burn injury accidents.

    Next step

    Save Voice will not only protect child in the home. It should be able to futher protect children outside of the home while serving as a fashion item.
