First. Dehydration is one of the biggest reasons for admitting an elderly person to hospital. It is also hard for health care professionals to detect without a blood test. ‘first.’ aims to prevent dehydration in elderly people before the need for medical intervention. The bracelet detects the users hydration, then wirelessly sends these levels to both a plant to visualise the hydration level and an app to record the hydration level.
