What’s the idea: A wearable device that alerts if user falls suddenly; useful for old people, and those suffering from fits, convulsions, seizures etc. This will help keep an electronic eye (if integrated with mobile) on your loved ones and find out if they are okay or not.
The idea to have such a device came to Soumya Ranjan’s mind seeing one of his friends getting an epileptic attack and falling down and realizing that there may be times when no one is around, such a device would be quite useful. He likes to play cricket and wants to become a mechanical engineer.
