Bachelor of Interaction Design student – Tammy Le – wins at DementiaHack – an international event with a great cause.
Tammy Le participated in DementiaHack, a two day hackathon facilitated by HackerNest and the British Consulate-General Toronto and hosted by the Ryerson DMZ. It was a transatlantic hackathon with teams from Toronto and the UK participating to create solutions for dementia patients.
Tammy talks about her experience at the event saying:
My team named CareUmbrella wanted to focus on developing memory aids for early/mid stage dementia patients. After interviewing people living with dementia we found that living independently was extremely important to them. Knowing this, our team developed a web portal that allows you to easily program Near Field Communications (NFC) chip. Users would be able to stick our branded NFC chips on daily items within their household or environment, and when near scan the chip using their phone which would then bring up whatever content they programed with it. This could be text instructions, audio, video etc. to help remind users what they need to do and to minimize the amount of support they need from others when it comes to re-education of daily tasks and activities. You can watch our demo here
Out of 16 teams, CareUmbrella won first place. The grand prize consists of demoing at the next HackerNest social, Mobile Med App Showcase, Hacking Health Cafe and a paid trip to the UK Health Tech Conference in December.
Congratulations Tammy and the CareUmbrella on such a great accomplishment!
