The students, Adeyemo Oluwaseun, Sobola
Timilehin, Raymond Obinaju and Kevin
Ahwin, entered the competition by
developing a device which is used for
managing asthma effectively in children,
called Asthmavisor.

AsthmaVisor Solution consists of a mobile
application operating with a wearable
device, which monitors asthmatic patients’
health status, ensuring that they stay safe
and well informed of their environment.
It helps patients to be more conscious of
their environment while also serving as a
reminder of their physicians’ recommendations.

The software also provides an automatic
alert, which is triggered by changes in
environmental condition as detected by the
sensors in the device.
