From a very young age, Kenneth has been interested in helping the elderly using technology. When he was six years old, he invented a Smart Bathroom that detects the falls of the elderly and wirelessly alerts their caregivers. One year later, he created a Smart Medicine Box that reminds patients to take the right medicine at the right time. The SafeWander products were inspired by his own family’s struggles to care for his grandfather, an Alzheimer’s patient. For his achievements, Kenneth has been recognized with numerous awards and honors including the Scientific American Science in Action Award at the Google Science Fair, a TED speaker a White House Science Fair Exhibitor, a keynote speaker at the Medical Innovations Summit by the U.K. Royal Society of Medicine, a Davidson Fellow, and most recently a WebMD Health Hero Prodigy.
