Garey High School InvenTeam
The Garey High School InvenTeam invented Heart and Sole—a device allowing individuals with diabetes to self-monitor foot health. Heart and Sole utilizes four sensors that measure variables relevant to the diabetic foot: oxygen saturation, blood flow, MEG, and nerve conduction velocity. The non-invasive measurements allow patients to monitor their feet without visiting a doctor. The home care is possible without hard-to-perform visual inspections. Data from each sensor are displayed on digital screens and a 280 nm UV light is used to sanitize the monitoring device after each use. Then sensors and screens are mounted on a housing that the user can easily slide their foot in and align with the sensors.
On July 12, 2022, the Garey High School InvenTeam was awarded patent # US 11382563 B2 for their invention by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. LMIT congratulates the talented students and teachers of the Garey High School InvenTeam for utilizing their passion and prowess for invention to make a meaningful impact in their community.
