Proposed an invention for Global Innovation Award
From the award site:
Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring
MAR 4 UPDATE: Received provisional patent today!! FEB 12 UPDATE: Applied for a provisional patent for our solution. EVERY DAY almost 200,000 kids with Type 1 Diabetes have to prick their fingers over 1 million times! They have to do this to monitor their glucose level to be sure it doesn’t go too high or too low. If that happens, they can become very sick. Our team has come up with an innovative way to combine RFID technology, microchips and a really cool looking watch so that kids never have to prick their fingers again. We were able to review our solution with a biomedical engineer from Boston University who specializes in Diabetes research. We incorporated his suggestions into our design, so we believe our solution has a real chance of helping kids with Type 1 Diabetes. Please take a look at our solution for Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring and cast a vote for us - Thanks!
