Na'ama Mashiach, an engineer by profession and mother of a nine-month-old baby, developed a smart bracelet for babies to monitor body measurements which contains a recording sensor that turns on only when it detects stress.
The bracelet is connected to an app on a parent’s phone to sound an alert in real-time if it detects that a baby or toddler is distressed. Mashiach got the idea when her son was in daycare one day and she discovered that he had been left neglected and crying for a long time.
She removed him from the daycare, but didn't forget the incident. She was concerned that her baby was in distress for such a long time and she wasn't made aware.
To bypass the problem, Mashiach launched a headstart crowdfunding campaign to develop and refine the bracelet and offers supporters an advance purchase with a significant discount.
How does the bracelet work?
According to her, the bracelet tracks the physiological indicators of the baby using external sensors like a smartwatch and if it detects stress it sends an immediate alert to a parent. Also, the system turns on a sound sensor so that mom or dad can hear in real time what’s happening with their baby.
