Father invents device to detect babies’ vital signs

About the solution

The student decided to create this device after he lost his daughter Eleanore to sudden infant death syndrome, when she was a month old. At the time, there was no device on the market that could be detecting a baby’s vital signals. That’s what inspired Peter, who adapted a guitar sensor to build the Ella’s Monitor, which was launched in 2012.

The tiny sensor is worn by a baby and detects all vital signs. The sensor will link to a cell phone or computer as an app and alert parents when the baby is not OK.

"In this day and age when I have so much access to so much incredible technology, I really find it kind of inexcusable that we do not have a sensor that can prevent this from happening," Seymour said.

"And while it's a sad thing for me, it's something that I am trying to make a good," Seymour said. "It's something that has a positive impact not only in my life but on the world."

The device is supposed to cost anywhere from $25 to $50.
