15-year-old Designs Pressure Sensor to Help Wandering Dementia Patients

A novel, wearable sensor system created for dementia patients helps to keep them safe when they wander out of bed during the night while also providing relief to their families and caregivers. The system, which connects to a smartphone, is not only innovative, but is also making headlines since it was created by a 15-year-old who wanted to help his aunt taking care of his grandfather, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Kenneth Shinozuka created and tested the device on his grandfather, and it is now available on his website.
