LIfe saving research and Ella's Monitor
Peter Seymour's idea for a baby monitor that monitors vital signs is extraordinary. Taking something so simple and combining it with technology we use ever day is part of what makes his ideas so innovative. Finding a solution and possibly the cause is also important to saving lives. With the smart phone tracking ability, it can also be used to track every infant that uses it. There could be a database where you could enter some information like age and any conditions, and any information received form the device can be saved and used for research for people studying SIDS. Time of day, breathing patterns, heart rates throughout the night can all be monitored and used to better understand what happens to infants while they sleep.
