IV Drip alert : an automatic device to monitor fluid administration

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

The idea came when I was with my brother in the hospital and  I left the room. When I came back I saw blood into the IV line and I was very scared for what happened but when I asked, the nurses told me that is very dangerous and this can lead patient to air embolism, swollen sometimes when there is infection can cause cancer, and from there I started to think what can I do which can be able to deliver fluid and alert when fluid is finished in the bag and be able to detect air in the line and other errors, is in that time i came up with idea of IV Drip alert.

I will make money in selling my devices and when there is components need to be replaced, the customer will have to come back to me because no other components will be compatible with that one.

A few words about your competitors

My competitors are also good but their products need to be connected to electricity and they are also big and can not be moved, require much power and they are expensive. For alerting issue they can not alert to the nurses room directly.
