概要

YourPacifier is a smart pacifier to support your children and you. It senses humidity of baby's lips then the mobile app notifies you the baby's total body water amount. If the amount is little and your baby can be in dangerous condition, the app alerts you.


経緯

When one of our team member was doing a public health research in Asia and pacific islands, he saw many children were hospitalized in local hospital because of serious dehydration of diarrhea. Every year, diarrhea kills 525,000 children under five years old. Rotavirus is the top cause of fatal diarrhea in infants and children. Rotavirus accounts for about 40 percent of deaths from diarrhea among children, and there’re 215,000 deaths worldwide. Rotaviral gastroenteritis is also a serious public health problem in developed countries. The disease is ubiquitous, affecting nearly all children by the age of 5 years.


機能

"YourPacifier" is a smart pacifier connected to your smart phone. The pacifier sensing humidity of baby's lips then the mobile app notifies you the baby's total body water amount. If the amount is little and your baby can be in dangerous condition, the app alerts you and gives you diagnostic questions. By answering them, the app judges if you should bring your baby to a hospital or not. Oral Rehydration Solution is included in the pacifier, so your baby can be hydrated at the same time. It can be a first-aid for your baby's dehydration. YourPacifier collects the data of users, and it can detect epidemics around your child. The data can be also used by doctors. "YourPacifier" is a smart pacifier not only for your baby but also for you!


開発過程

At first we defined the problem and a need statement. We are sure we've met an unmet medical need and built a solution with deep public-health knowledge and experiences of the members and with high feasibility from technical and business point of view. We used arduino and sensor to develop your pacifier prototype. The 3D model of YourPacifier was designed using fusion 360. We designed a mechanism that extrudes air by pinching and pushes solution into the baby's mouth. Dashboards for hospitals to check the status of patients in their area were constructed using Ruby on Rails, HTML, CSS, Javascript. Your pacifier 's smartphone application was built using Xcode and swift. We used arduino and sensor to develop your pacifier prototype. The 3D model of your pacifier was designed using fusion 360. I designed a mechanism that extrudes air by pinching and pushes chemical into the baby's mouth. We made a lot of prototype for hardwares and softwares.


差別化

It's not just a thermo meter.


将来の計画

We need money to manufacture the IoT devices. We're planning to make some research after we get money. We'll run this project as a business. Rotaviral gastroenteritis is also a serious public health problem in developed countries. The disease is ubiquitous, affecting nearly all children by the age of 5 years. It is the most common cause of hospitalizations for gastroenteritis among children in the United States and is associated with direct and indirect costs of approximately $1 billion per year.
