Watch to remind patients to take their meds

About the solution

The young girl came up with this idea when her sister was diagnosed with Graves Diseases, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. The inventor’s sister has to take medicine for the resto of her life.

A discrete alarm, which is on the user’s wrist, sounds when it’s time to take the medicine.

The compartment is locked with a code, and the watch has other features, such as event reminders and phone capabilities.

Holly’s watch entry was chosen along with Year 3 and 4 student entries demonstrating originality, creativity, practicality, imagination and innovation.

The young girl was a finalist in Origin’s littleBIGidea competition.
