Around the world civil rights fighters do not necessarily get the same equal treatment they do in America. In the past 5 years there have been dozens of incidents where civil rights protesters were kidnapped or captured by government or rebel groups and that is exactly what the CRD bracelet was designed to prevent.
The bracelets are small, simple, and cheap, and when forcefully removed or manually activated it will automatically report its GPS position back to headquarters. Many activists feel that this type of security device is very important because it is such a small but effective tool to prevent kidnapping and capture. The wristband, called Project Natalia, was created after a 2009 incident where Natalia Estemirova was kidnapped and killed.
Not only are these bracelets expected to be very popular and helpful for civil rights activists around the world; they are also being marketed towards parents wanting to keep their children safe. The same kidnapping protection features apply easily to children that might be at risk and the tracking and detection system would work flawlessly according to many experts. As a whole this simple design is a big breakthrough that could save thousands of lives all around the world by preventing kidnapping and capture of innocent people.
