An aging person is more prone to ill medical conditions, So we use modern techniques to analyze and alert them of their health condition in regards to to various factors , it would help them live a healthy lifestyle.
What it does
An android application helps aging person to keep track of their medication, Health condition, calorie intake which are sent for data visualization to get probable solution for ill health condition, alert of possible outbreak or any disease he is susceptible to in a given area through text messages. He would get notification alerts about his medication, health condition and doctor appointments. Data visualization help health agency and medical practitioner to analyze data from different demographics and help to reduce situations such as endemics and help in medical research. Our data visualization tool, dashboard consists of graphs and statistical visualizations which shows different categories of diseases, contagious vs non contagious diseases. Our web tool consists of different events related to medical terms in near by area are displayed. It consists of calendar which can be dynamically updated with above events. Past data used for visualization is used for predictive analysis and alert android application
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Our biggest challenge was setting up the UI as friendly to aging people as we can. Mobile application should be simple and should contain vital information.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We designed a web game environment using D3 visualization for predicting outbreak of contagious diseases in neighboring regions of current affected area.
What we learned
Extending our application to people in all demographics is an interesting area to be explored. A speech based extension for this application using Amazon’s alexa will be much helpful for an aging person. Using wearable devices a critical situation can be determined and an emergency contact is made with hospitals or a family member.
