How Ripple Works
Begin by downloading the Ripple app from the App Store or Google Play.
Build your personal profile with all the information you choose to share with your Team. This may include your:
- Date of birth
- Physical description (height, weight, hair color, eye color)
- Medical conditions
- Current medications
- Or anything else you feel may be important for your Team to know in the event you need emergency help.
Now, you no longer have to tell 9-1-1 all of your critical information when you need help, your Team does all the work for you!
When you click to connect with your Team, your alert generates your personal profile so your Team knows all your vital information ahead of time, saving you invaluable time during an emergency situation.
Comfort When You Want It
Have you or someone you care about ever wished somebody just had your back during an uncomfortable situation?
Your Team is always there for you.
Click once and you immediately receive a call from your Team.
This is used for anytime you just want someone there for you:
- Walking back to your dorm after pulling an all-nighter at the library?
- Walking to your car at the end of the poorly-lit parking lot?
- Walking home at night and don’t feel safe?
- Heard a suspicious noise in your house and have to check it out?
- Lost in an unknown city, or part of town you’ve never been to before?
- Need a “convenient interruption” to disrupt an awkward encounter?
If you or someone you know dreads these disturbing scenarios, Ripple is your solution.
Click your wearable or app one time, and you will alert your Team that you need us.
We immediately call your phone to stay by your side until you’ve safely made it where you’re going. In the event something were to go wrong, we have all the information we need to immediately dispatch Police right to your location.
Friends and family are great to have, but they can’t always be there 24/7, and they certainly can’t get you emergency help as quickly and accurately as your Team does.

Here’s where Ripple get’s really special:
click 3+ times to alert your Team you are in a serious emergency.
They will immediately dispatch the emergency responders you need, and relay all of your critical information to them on your behalf!
How do they know what you need?
When building your profile, select from three different commands you want your team to execute in the event you click 3+ times for emergency help:
- Send Police to your location
- Send an ambulance to your location
- Call your phone

Wear It Anywhere
Founder and COO Rees ‘Bo’ Gillespie was inspired to develop the breakthrough device and service for his three younger sisters and mother, a real-estate agent who would often ask him to check on her when she attended showings with unknown clients.
“Even in today’s connected world, there are moments when we feel alone and unsafe. Help can seem a little too far away, or we may be too embarrassed to ask for it,” said Gillespie.
“I developed Ripple for the comfort and peace-of-mind it provides; knowing someone always has your back, anytime, anywhere, is an incredibly empowering feeling.”
For a limited time, exclusively on Kickstarter, Ripple is offering its Bluetooth wearable along with an entire year of service for $129.
In addition, Ripple has partnered with world-renowned, fourth generation jewelry designer Louis Tamis & Sons to make available a one-of-a-kind sterling silver Bluetooth locket, monogrammed, for $199, with one year of service.
Ripple is scheduled to ship April 2017. You can view the Kickstarter here:
