MonitorMe was inspired by the fact that the numbers on the display screen of a blood pressure monitor don’t give enough information to the user. What MonitorMe aims to do is to make these pressure readings more understandable. MonitorMe is a very simple and user-friendly program that allows the user to know if their blood pressure puts them in danger and what needs to be done to prevent or reduce their blood pressure if needed.

What it does

MonitorMe makes understanding a blood pressure monitor really easy! After the user inputs the systolic, diastolic, and pulse readings from the blood pressure machine into MonitorMe, it will tell the user if their readings are low, normal, or high. If the user’s blood pressure is high, MonitorMe will suggest solutions and remedies that may help the user.

How we built it

The frontend is developed using HTML/CSS, Bootstrap.

The backend component is built using PHP and Laravel.

Challenges we ran into

Our original idea was to make a mobile app that would transfer data directly into the mobile app by taking a picture using artificial intelligence, but that proved to be a challenge in the 36-hour time span as many of the programs/frameworks were fairly new to us.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

One of the accomplishments that we’re proud of is integrating the front and back end to work together. We made a functional prototype and are really proud of the results!

What we learned

We learned how to effectively time manage and problem solve in a very short amount of time.

What's next for MonitorMe

What’s next for MonitorMe is trying to incorporate a weekly report for the user to monitor their blood pressure. All the readings and the dates of the readings will be saved on a cloud, and whenever the user would like to check on previous readings, it will be readily available to them. We also would like to incorporate more ways to educate the users about what the reading actually means, and what ways the user can avoid getting hypertension. MonitorMe is also planning on creating a mobile app where the user has an option to take a photograph of their blood pressure monitor, and using machine learning the app will read the pressure readings and store systolic and diastolic on the app. This would make the user experience more convenient and user-friendly!
