- A Wearable Sensor To Help The Alzheimer’s Patients – Kenneth Shinozuka
Kenneth Shinozuka was mere 15 years of age when he invented this amazing device. His grandfather was suffering from Alzheimer, and he was once spotted by a policeman, wandering on the road in his night pyjamas. That event left a deep impact on Shinozuka, which led to the invention of a device that can help his grandfather, and other patients of Alzheimer’s stay safe. This device is a small sensor which is attached to the foot or the foot gear of the patient. The sensor alerts the patient’s care-taker through a phone app if the patient steps out of bed at a wrong time.
