Using sensors and e-Health sensor platform (from Cooking Hacks, Libelium's DIY division), inventor Michael Script created a sophisticated device that will prevent millions of babies from dying of infant pneumonia by accurately measuring breath rate. The sensor platform allows for the integration of multiple biometric tests (breath rate, body position, etc.) and Script found he could link body position, heart rate, and a breath monitor to derive an accurate breath rate. At $15-$20/unit, the game-changing INSPIRE devices are accessible, and have the potential to save millions of young lives. This is innovation and problem solving at its finest.
