Abstract

The goal of this project is to develop a non-invasive procedure able to measure Iron Deficiency without the use of blood. This project will allow many who are afraid of needles the option to try something which will not involve needles. This innovation will be inexpensive and convenient for many patients, while saving lives by limiting the exposure to many blood infections that can occur through normal iron blood tests. This detector will be used daily and checked whenever the patient feels the need to since it will be applied to watches. This is important because many people are afraid of needles and are not willing to get yearly iron checks due to this fear. This will be an option for those who find needles uncomfortable. The creation of this project involved programming and developing an app that enabled sensors to be applied to detect the level of iron. The program will then be able to be used and downloaded on smart watches.
