COVID19 crises

"Exhaustion is one reason medical workers have high vulnerability to infection… worst thing is once a healthcare worker is infected, there's extra workload on the others.” (J. Nicholls HKU pathologist SARS outbreak, Los Angeles Times)

“(Fatigue causes) Errors in patient care, increased needlesticks & exposure to blood & other body fluids & increased occupational injuries among healthcare workers.” (OSHA)

“...nurses & doctors died not because of infection but because of cardiac arrest or other ailments due to overwork & fatigue.” (Chinese doctor fighting COVID19, Los Angeles Times)

“Fatigue is linked to health problems such as heart disease, musculoskeletal disorders, depression, breast & prostate cancer, reproductive problems, worsening of diabetes & epilepsy, sleep disorders, etc.” (OSHA)

“Compassion fatigue (CF) is stress resulting from exposure to a traumatized individual ...convergence of secondary traumatic stress & cumulative burnout, a state of physical & mental exhaustion caused by a depleted ability to cope with one's everyday environment.” (U.S. national library of medicine)

What it does

The award-winning, patented VigilantAngel™ technology prevents accidents, infection, fatigue related illnesses & death while increasing work efficiency & healthiness by monitoring & predicting fatigue in real time, providing objective realtime fatigue monitoring and prediction for individuals, teams and institutional fatigue management regimes with a wearable and app.

How I built it

I built it with a dry EEG wearable, an android app and some proprietary unpublished algorithms for detecting and predicting fatigue and drowsiness using brainwaves.

Challenges I ran into

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

A functioning prototype.

What I learned

What's next for Vigilant Angel™

Launching VigilantAngel™ to the front lines of the COVID19 effort ASAP and getting into place for the predicted wave of infections this autumn.
