The Scientific Community Is Amazed That A 15 Year Old Boy Invents Something To Help His Grandfather With Alzheimer’s Disease.



15 year old Kenneth Shinozuka is only in his eleventh grade, yet he has done something amazing that made him the center of attention in the scientific community all over the world. Ken’s grandfather, 88 year old Ida is a resident of Irvine Cottages, an assisted living facility in Irvine, California. Those living here suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Sometimes they wander around on their own and forget the way back home because of Alzheimer’s. So, to help protect his grandpa Ida, Ken invented a device to keep track of the old man all the time. You will be amazed to see how simple yet wonderfully effective his invention is, watch the video below…


So, you see how simple the solution was! Ken invented a sock with a sensor that goes off every time the patient with Alzheimer’s stepped on their feet and even keep track of their whereabouts and send it to a smartphone device! How simple, how brilliant! He spent countless hours to make this wonderful device so that he can help his loving grandpa along with all the other patients. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, of the estimated five million Americans with the disease, about 60 percent of them wander and often become dangerously lost as a result. His invention will be great way to help these patients and his innovation has already won him a $50,000 prize and “Science in Action” award from the Scientific American Magazine.
