Student Wins Science Fair With Monitor For Alzheimer's Patient
Fifteen year old Kenneth Shinozuka won the 2014 Scientific American Science in Action Award at the Google Science Fair. His grandfather suffers from Alzheimer's disease and will often wander off during the night. Kenneth created a sensor that will alert his aunt of his grandfather's movements. This allows his aunt to get a good night's sleep knowing she will be alerted if her father starts to wander.
I look forward to more innovations like this from independent inventors. An outsider with a different perspective can often bring a good solution to an existing problem.
