Health Care Issue


Disease and sickness in infants: heart defects, fever, hypothermia, hypoxia, hyperoxia, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, etc../// We are developing a product to make parents more aware of the status of their baby's health. This product is a pacifier that monitors heart rate, body temperature, oxygen level and blood sugar levels through a mobile app. Through these diagnostics, parents and/or doctors will be able to identify potential diseases or defects.
