Teenager creates medical watch for her grandmother

About the solution

The student said she came up with the idea as she was taking care of her grandmother, a diabetic with high blood pressure and heart disease.

Her grandmother needed constant attention, monitoring of her blood sugar and blood pressure. That is when she decided to invent a device to perform all these tasks together and alert the patient of any abnormalities.

Once the watch is put on, it will emit certain sounds and turn different colors based on the condition of the patient. For example, red indicates that the patient should be concerned while green is normal.

Al-Qahtani is currently working on developing her invention in order to get it patented.
