• The team from Afe Babalola University Ado Ekiti will represent Africa at this year’s Microsoft Imagine Cup competition holding next month in Seattle, United States.

    The team, known as Team Lifewatch, defeated other African teams from Burkina Faso, South Africa, Uganda, Egypt, Angola, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia to qualify for the grand finale.

    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.
