PROJECT GOAL: In today’s society, drink spiking is a common recurring issue that people of all ages, specifically women, face with the fear of getting hurt. CoastHER is a low-cost, portable, and effective device that provides protection to those vulnerable at events, sending active alerts when movement is detected around their drinks.
According to a survey conducted by AmericanAddictionCenters.org, 56% of women said they’ve unknowingly had their drinks spiked. Drink spiking occurs when a date-rape drug is slipped in a person’s drink. Consuming drugged drinks creates a risk of sexual assault attempts. Not only does this prevalent issue raise serious health and safety concerns, but it also frequently happens to young women, as 4 out of 5 victims are females aged under 24. CoastHER strives to promote safety by actively communicating when movement around the rim is detected. With our product, daughters, nieces, mothers, grandmothers and all women can be safe.
