USA Today rounds up medical and safety tracking devices including those for tracking children and patients with Alzheimer's. One new one to me: Exmobaby, a sensor that sends baby's vitals and "emotional state" from its pajamas to parents. My family lost a baby to SIDS and this is marketed in that space (see FAQ).
Construction falls sometimes injure and sometimes kill. CWPR (The Center for Construction Research and Training - I know the acronym does not work me, either) has a map of all falls and one of fatal ones from 2011 (built on ArcGIS Online best I can tell). There is a call for data points from 2012.
