"There is no greater horror for parents than to have a child go missing, but it happens often. One in 68 children in the world has autism, 47% of all children with autism went mising at least once. These children need constant monitoring, care and support. They can be defenseless and disoriented. " So the author of the project - Dragoslav Radoynovich - began the presentation of this smart device.

The device is light and comfortable to wear. It has functions of an electronic diary and helps the parents to trace the child's status and location – it reports a fall, stroke, seizure, fever, falling into water etc. In this way, parents will know at any time where is their child with autism. And the children get a chance for greater autonomy.

Author of the project is Dragoslav Radojicic, engineer-programmer of Nis, founder of EuroPATC and father of 11-year-old child with autism.

Bulgaria is the first country in the world where the invention is put on children with autism and provides feedback to their families. The project is supported by VIVACOM in partnerhip with the company I CAN TOO, which will offer CAPPLO on the market.
