Boy creates seat belt heart monitor

About the solution

Adeeb had already designed a prosthetic leg for his father, who has polio, and a robot to help his mother cleaning the house, when he was just ten years old.

One day his father shared with him the following thought: “what if I was in the car one day and I died, you have no idea I’m driving a car, I’m in the middle of nowhere, and the cellphone is out of battery, what would you do?”.

The boy thought about this and built a seat belt with a heart monitor which monitors a passenger's heart rate and alerts the authorities when it's too high or low.

"If you die or anything, cops and the ambulance will come towards you and your entire household will be informed," the inventor said.
Adeeb is the head of the Arab Youth Council for Integrated Development’s committee of young inventors and innovators. He is also a member of the Arab Robotics Association.

This boy’s inventions are being supervised and funded by the Dubai government.
