Teamwork Solutions in Lafayette, LA Wins Cajun Code Fest 2014

Teamwork Codefest 2014 Winners

The Cajun Code Fest is a 2 day event that teams compete in to produce their best solution to elderly people aging in place. We had 27 hours to create a complete solution.  Our concept, which we named "Care™", was a suite of tools of hardware and software that addresses this problem. Most seniors just need a little assistance with day to day activities to keep them living at home longer.

Our idea was to have a few pieces of hardware that would send data to a central area that doctors & family could accesses. For instance, sensors could be installed in the home to monitor patterns in gait so problems could be addressed before they happen. If a person is having knee problems monitors could detect that and alert their doctor or family.

Other data could be collected on blood pressure, heart rate and weight. That way a doctor has a huge amount of relevant info about the patient to make a more informed diagnosis.

There would be a central login for a doctor and family to review info about the person. Video chat is designed to be ultra simple for the patient and doctor. A doctor could video interview the patient with the mounted touch screen monitor in the home saving doctor trips. A family member could easily check in on a loved one by simply logging in and enabling video chat.

 There were a lot of great teams that created great concepts. We feel we won by really focusing as a team. We all had specialized skills that we applied to this project. This is something we do for our clients everyday but it was new to do it all in 27 hours!
