His Grandpa With Alzheimer’s Kept Wandering Off, So He Came Up With This Brilliant Solution
It’s one teenager’s love for his grandpa that’s changing lives of millions of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and their families. Up to 60% of the Americans living with this disease wonder off at some point, so this smart kid invented and is currently testing a mobile app that warns the families or the nursing staff when someone gets up at night.
It’s a pressure sensor that the patient wears on the bottom of their socks that sets off a discreet alarm when it’s activated. We need more kids like this, not only smart but thoughtful and who cares for the elderly.
