What it does
We believe that our product is able to save thousands of lives. Life shirt is able to detect heart failure and provide instructions to bystanders. While this is the most vital aspect of the Life Shirt, it can do so much more. Temperature measurements to detect hypothermia. A transmitter and GPS to alert the emergencies as efficiently as possible. Heart rhythm will be easily monitored and information will be easily accessible by doctors and hospitals.
How we built it
We created a simulation using Photoshop and Sony Vegas to represent our concept.
Challenges we ran into
First of all, it was hard to find applications for the flexible electronics, the ideation phase was frustrating but eventually, we came up with an idea. When working out the idea, it was hard to find an efficient way to communicate the instructions to perform CPR without the use of language. Also, the visualization of the concept was quite challenging.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating the animation to present our concept. Designing an epic logo.
What we learned
It's hard to predict what the future of technology might bring.
What's next for Life shirt
Making it durable, reducing the cost and having electronics in all wearables.
