SAFETY SOLUTION FOR SKIERS

SAFETY SOLUTION FOR SKIERS

CHALLENGES

The rising number of people pursuing skiing as well as the growth of ski resorts and initiatives to encourage participation should boost the market in upcoming years. It is projected to reach USD 1.61 Billion by 2026, a growth of 3.37% from 2019.

However, as a global number of skiers using this sport as recreation rises up, there is a higher risk of various types of injuries that can severely affect anyone. Overall injury rate from skiing is close to 1-3 injuries per 1,000 days skied. The most common injuries are:

In order to avoid any possible fatal or long term consequences, it is very important to react as quickly as possible. In some cases, people lose their consciousness or are unable to move their upper body and therefore cannot call for help using their mobile phones.

Moreover, avalanches in ski resorts are a very common occurrence. For example, in the mountains of the western United States alone, there are about 100,000 avalanches each year. Avalanches kill more than 150 people worldwide each year because it is difficult to determine the exact location of a person under the snow.

Situations like these establish the need for safety equipment that would be able to detect a possible accident, make an emergency signal and thus help to avoid any horrible outcomes related to a person’s health.

Teltonika has found a way to ensure the health and safety of skiers around the world with a personal tracker TMT250 which is very small and can be easily equipped within your traditional ski uniform.

SOLUTION

Teltonika TMT250 is an autonomous personal tracker with GNSS, GSM and Bluetooth connectivity. As it is handy and has a formidable case, a skier can attach the device anywhere and use it in most extreme weather conditions, in particular, skiing in the mountains.

In case of an accident a person can press an alarm button which immediately sends a signal to help center for emergency to take notice. For situations where a skier suffers more serious injuries, there are scenarios of (no)movement and man down – device creates a record and sends a message to the help center. Real-time tracking function allows the accountable party to identify the exact location and respond as fast as possible, helping to avoid potential fatal consequences.
