Smart Wristband To Monitor Alzheimer’s Patients by Hemesh


Problem Statement

Every 3 seconds a person in the world suffers from Alzheimer’s. Patients suffering from this disease don’t have control over their body. Hemesh’s Grandmother was one amongst many who were suffering from Alzheimer’s.

She used to wander at abnormal timings from the bed without even caregiver’s notice. Irregular Health-Checkups was also common. She used to cause a lot of accidents at home. So for Alzheimer’s patients worldwide, Hemesh created the Smart Wristband To Monitor Elderly and Disabled.

The Solution (ALpha Monitor)

This Wearable device is worn by the Alzheimer’s Patient and a Mobile App needs to be downloaded by the caregiver and the Doctor. The Wristband monitors the Health Status of the patient such as Wandering, Pulse Rate, BP and Body Temperature. If the patient gets out of his/her’s bed and starts wandering, an alert is automatically sent to the caregiver and the doctor. The Mobile App displays the Health status of the patient.

The Pulse Rate, Body Movements, Temperature and BP readings are automatically sent to the doctor as Daily Reports via SMS.

A camera also monitors the patient and Detects any falls on the ground. It automatically detects and alerts the Caregiver if the patient falls on the ground.

There is also a Medicine Reminder which reminds the patient to take medication and pills at the right time. He also created an Algorithm which uses Machine Learning to predict and prevent Wandering and falls. This device is very useful for the Elderly and Disabled.


He had also received support from various forums such as ARDSI and TSIC.

He also presented his prototype at the National Showcase with top 50 projects under Ideate for India at Delhi – Powered by Intel and Launched by Digital India, IRIS National Fair at Bangalore and Eureka! Junior at E-Cell, IIT Bombay.
