After spending 2 months with elderly people over the age of 80, Steven discovered that falling asleep unintentionally was a big problem for them with 5 out of 6 mentioning it. They explained that it causes many problems and worries for them.

Steven designed Doze, a sleep alert band that uses heart rate monitors and galvanic reaction sensors which allows the device to know when the user falls asleep.

This means the band can wake the user when they fall asleep. The Doze band will help provide peace of mind while helping elderly people regain their independence.
