Hack4Health 3.0 Teams

5 student teams were created at Hack4Health 3.0 and many amazing ideas came from the collective efforts of these teams. We encourage everyone to continue to develop their ideas to improve the quality of life of people living with MS or dementia. Here is a list of these innovative ideas:

Community and social network is important for those with dementia and their partners in care because signs and symptoms may cause unintentional isolation. For Early Onset Dementia we provide a social networking website that provides social connection and a sense of belonging by creating communities.

walkers  present a serious problem when the braking system is not in place at times when they need it to be.  Freewheel is an accessible, affordable retrofit system that removes the need to manually engage and disengage brakes on a walker. This  simple, robust system allows its users to disengage their brakes by having both their hands are in contact with the handles, and engage the brakes when their hands are not in contact with the handles.
