About the solution

After losing his dad to diabetes, Óscar Reyes decided to create a way to prevent this disease from taking other people’s lives.

Now at 19 he developed a bracelet and mobile app that help detect different diseases.

“The idea came up 6 years ago when my dad was suffering from diabetes. As I watched him get worse, I started to investigate how I could help him feel better, minimize diabetes symptoms and improve his quality of life”, Reyes said.

At 17 he had already designed the bracelet which gathers information and predicts several diseases with a precision of 80%. “The algorithm takes the readings from the bracelet, joins all the information collected and then uses it to predict diseases such as a heart attack, an embolism or diabetes if you already have prediabetes”, he commented.

Reyes has approached public institutions without success so far. He has also been approached by private companies which he rejected, as the money-making side of his solution is not is main goal. He says the purpose of his invention is to help people with low resources, and so he will keep trying to reach the municipal and state public institutions, to try to make his invention reach the people with the lowest incomes.
