A 13-year-old girl won the LEGO Education Builder Award at the Google Science Fair by creating a wearable monitor with inkjet-printable sensors.
According to IEEE Spectrum, American teenage girl Anushka Naiknaware developed a sensor for monitoring chronic wound care. The sensors can be printed on bandages with an inkjet cartridge filled with conductive ink. This wearable monitor collects data from the sensors.
The new technology has helped to supervise the moisture around the wound and avoid changing bandages which may slow healing.
Google Science Fairs stated Naiknaware’s work has contributed major advancements to modern medicine, which in turn gained her the LEGO Education Builder Award.
