T.R.E.A.T (Troubles, Recognizing, Eating Disorder, Awareness, Treatment)
PROJECT GOAL: Our device’s objective is to create a wearable timer/alarm to remind people when to eat. The inequality being addressed is that individuals do not have time throughout their day due to their job/lifestyle, as well as struggling with disorders or disease, to intake the recommended amount of food.
Our project will benefit people who struggle with eating the necessary meals throughout the day. Keeping track of time may be difficult for some individuals with medical disorders who may need a reminder to guide them through the day and keep on a healthy eating schedule. We hope that this project is able to aid those individuals that need a reminder and support to eat throughout the day as this is how we will improve our societies mental and physical health. Our device addresses these inequities because it gives assistance by keeping people on schedule with their eating.
