WatchOver - Peace of Mind for Alzheimers Caregivers and Freedom for Loved Ones
(Olin College of Engineering)
Our team of engineers, industrial designers and business students designed a product to give peace of mind to those taking care of loved ones with Alzheimer's. When Alzheimer's patients wander and are not found within 24 hours, there is only a 54% chance of survival. Many caregivers do not have the time or the money necessary to watch over their loved one. We created a device that is unobtrusive for Alzheimer's patients, but could alert caregivers should anything go wrong.
