Abstract:
    Paper-based sensors can revolutionize the field of real-time health monitoring. These sensors will create a contact-free hospital setting to protect staff & automatically track patients' vitals.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The advent of COVID-19 has stirred up the need to create a contact-free environment in a hospital setting. While it is hard to implement a full-scale robotic environment, wearable sensors can arguably be the first step.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   All healthcare personnel working in conjunction with patients with contagious diseases like COVID-19. Unnecessary contact with patients is detrimental in many ways. Accurate real-time biosensing can track the progress of paralysis patients, graph symptoms of COVID-19 patients without human contact.
How will the solution works
    Our wearable sensor will sense heart rate, oxygen saturation level & blood pressure. The sensor will measure the resistance across the applied area. We will use biodegradable 2D material like MXene to synthesize the sensor. These 4 x 4 cm sensors will be applied to the wrist, knees and other critical points on a patient's body. The sensors will be connected to an IoT-based system which will record the aforementioned parameters. Moreover, patients' movements can also be graphed.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    On a primary level, our competitors would be wearable devices' manufacturers like Fitbit. Our solution is distinct as we are harnessing the potential of human information via a simple technique. Biosensing is often costly & requires space; our solution challenges the existing premise.
