R3: RECOGNISE, RESPOND AND REFER
http://www.harborhousefl.com/2012/01/r3-app-2/

The R3 App was create for medical professionals but can be easily used from anyone.

It allows to assess domestic abuse victims through 4 simple screening questions based on the HITS screen tool.


ABUSE RADAR: our own app-idea.

The concept is simple: the app looks like a normal calendar and because of safety reasons the user can change the name and the icon of the app itself.

When the user arrives at home, the app puts automatically the phone in “listening mode”.

When the microphone of the device detects a scream or any other high-volume sound, the app starts recording.

We are working on its feasibility, if you are a developer or if you are interested in funding the project please get in contact.
