Carmel, IL
Detector of seizures and accompanying medicine delivery method

The Carmel High School InvenTeam invented a seizure-detecting and anticonvulsant drug-injecting system for people with epilepsy. The detecting apparatus is worn near the deltoid and continuously monitors eletrodermal and electromyographic signals. When a seizure event is detected through combined data from these sensors, the injector apparatus can administer the medicine at the ventrogluteal muscle near the hip unless the safety stop button is pressed within 15 seconds of event detection. This system is worn on neoprene sleeves allowing the user to remain comfortable and active throughout the day.

A few team members attended the Conrad Spirit of Innovation Summit at the Kennedy Space Center in Cocoa Beach, Florida. This event provided our team with feedback regarding our device, as well as various funding strategies we can utilize. It was beneficial to our team to  talk to industry professionals, as well as talk to other teams presenting at the event. Our whole team has been meeting as frequently as possible in order to ensure that we are prepared for EurekaFest. As the school year came to a close, we created a summer meeting schedule in order to continue our progress.

We just came back from Spring Break, but even then, we sacrificed part of our vacation to squeeze in another meeting. It was very helpful in contributing to our teamwork as we are now working together more, taking all of our progress, and putting it together into one device.

Some members of our team attended a robotics and technology exposition at the local public library in which community members asked us questions about our invention and the roles that the specific teams play. Overall, it was an awesome experience for some of our team members.

The MGTR went smoothly with 53 people in attendance. We received lots of great feedback and had fun presenting our progress. It was cool to share our accomplishments since most of our progress has been limited to just the team. We sincerely thank everyone for coming out!

Detecting Team Updates
We are doing more research with regards to the physical look of the device. Also, we have been looking into other mobile applications similar to the one we plan to introduce in correspondence to our detection device.
