Something for docs to use, and maybe roleplay out some non-mechanical services for medical extraction and care.

There's always a conversation every so often about how much SIC interferes with doing crimes, and this would only exacerbate the argument further.
Corpies getting it sent to their CorpSec team or the WJF or even medical services like AWC (oft underutilized) would be great. Even if it was just time of death and a GPS location.
I want to make sure it's clear. The goal really is to make a product that players *could* stock up on, and for medtechs to sell to people. Not to make an automated system that people pay to. The *only* enforcers and salesmen would be players, and it'd be an entirely player set up system.
My vision, specifically is a bracelet or cyber item. It can be configured with a key, encryption, etc. Maybe disable-able for nefarious parties? Either way. They'd be cheap. <2500 chy.
Once condition changes to critical or the user is knocked out or bleeding, the bracelet puts out an alert on the configured channel. And that's it as far as coded stuff I'd expect from SD.
The rest would be up to players. Selling them to people, making sure there are people with cars to go fetch them, etc. Very much a system that only works so much as players actually giving a shit. I realize that's a pitfall, but we *do* get a lot of medical immies, and this might be worthwhile. Or maybe not! Who knows. It seemed like a low-difficulty thing to add.
If Johnny *really* wanted to, he could probably make a slighter more reliable version for Corp. Something like that might be an auto-injector version with a loadable vial or something similar. Or some NPC system. But it was outside of my original vision.
Less sardonically, there are a lot of ways that there's *oops sudden death*.
More firmly: Most people don't put their locations when they're screaming for help.
Most firmly: There's not a dedicated channel for it. None of these "clients" or "bracelet wielders" would have the capability to talk on said alert channel, ideally. So the only people capable of conversing on it would be the people responding to it.
.. Assuming it doesn't get hacked or something.
I'm also concerned that it might take away from that feeling of fear when you don't take the time to report your every move to your protectors? I love that fear. Even if a lot of it is manufactured. I'd hate for this to take away from RP by removing that. Its difficult to talk about this without speaking specifically, sorry :/
TEASE "The %t starts flashing %bright and %brcyan on %n's wrist."
SIC TRAUMATEAM "%n (registered patient %#) has activated %p %t."
SIC TRAUMATEAM "Location found: %l."
That would make it a manually activated item (using "activate bracelet"), so there's still reasonable workarounds for nefarious characters, and probably a little delay before it goes off.
