Tocsen is a system consisting of a fall sensor and a smartphone app that detects falls sustained by outdoor athletes and automatically calls for help in an emergency when users are unable to do this themselves. The Tocsen fall sensor is already sold as a retrofit sensor (in pink, black and gray) for retrofitting to any helmet. An OEM solution integrated into the helmet was developed and marketed in late 2020.
After their friend Tom suffered a broken neck in a mountain bike accident despite wearing a helmet and was found unconscious by hikers, the Tocsen founders were looking for a solution to prevent such accidents in the future. As passionate outdoor sports enthusiasts, the entire Tocsen team gives its all to ensure that safety is no longer left to chance. In doing so, we incorporate our valuable experience from winter sports, cycling, riding and climbing sports into our work. It goes without saying that we test all our products extensively and put them through their paces in the various sports.
Target markets are all fall-prone outdoor sports where helmets are worn, such as mountain biking, road biking, equestrian sports, inline skating, skiing, snowboarding, paragliding, climbing, etc. Market volume: enormous market potential in all activities where wearing a helmet makes sense: sports, urban commuting, etc.
