Full Invention Name:
Cy-Nurse, Assisting Seniors 24 X 7
We are the Cy-Bots from Rockville, Maryland. We are a team of six and have been best friends for a long time. We have been in the FLL for 2 years now. Last year was our rookie year and we won the overall championship in the regional qualifier. In this year's Senior Solution Challenge we won the second place in project presentation. We used to meet every weekend to prepare for robotics missions and research project. During the FLL tournament, we learned a lot from each other, we learned individually and as a team; ultimately finding an innovative solution and a product that we strongly believe will help the seniors one day.
Brief Submission Description:
The invention - Cy-Nurse, is an intelligent robotic device designed to assist seniors who can't afford an assisted living facility. The device's primary goal is to assist seniors with dispensing timely, correct and safe medications. The device, Cy-Nurse, locks down and stops dispensing medication as soon as it detects drug recalls, incompatible drug interactions, and allergic reactions based on pre-programmed patients drug profile and real-time drug data. The device, based on specification such as size, shape and color, identifies the type of drug including its strength and also verifies with the prescription to make sure there is no inconsistency between prescription written at the Doctor's office and filled up at the Pharmacy.
