Hussain Almossawi has submitted his latest medical device concept to Tuvie, Oxygem.
Oxygem is a smart ring designed specially for people who suffer Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). This wearable medical device offers better lifestyle while reducing the amount of deaths caused by this disease each year. SCD is a condition in which red blood cells are not shaped as they should be, red blood cells usually shape like round discs, but for people with SCD, their blood cells look like crescent moon. The problem is that these sickle shaped cells often get stuck together, they block off small blood vessel that can cause oxygen levels to drop and result in pain and organ damage.
Oxygem smart ring by Hussain Almossawi tracks SpO2, measurement of oxygen saturation, it helps detect sicle cell crisis earlier to prevent complications. With multiple built-in sensors, this ring tracks SpO2 in blood at all times, allowing patient to get early warnings on the ring as well as notifications on the phone, it can also notify doctor in case of emergency.
Designed as a lifestyle product, Oxygem smart ring features modern design that complement every person’s style. This concept medical device is meant to be a gadget or smartwear that anyone can wear and benefit from, rather than making the user stands out as a person with a specific disease. The ring is actually pretty cool, thanks to a glowing and breathing light, it changes colors from blue to red to indicate how well the user is going. There are abstract radial lines displaying on the e-ink display screen to provide user with certain messages.
Oxygem Smart Ring is easy to charge, just place it onto OXYPOWER unit. Press the button in the middle of charger to elevate the ring, making it easy to pick up and ready on-the-go. Through the OXYGEM app, user can track their SpO2 level, heart rate, activity, hydration, and stress levels.
