Mako Student Innovation Award
HelpWear: An Innovative and Promising Start-UpHelpWear was founded by Frank Nguyen and André Bertram both high school students from Danforth Colligate and Technical Institute. The start-up has been benefitting from the help of the Biomedical Zone, a health tech incubator in Toronto. The two innovators have developed HeartWatch, the first product design of their company. Their invention is a heart monitoring wearable device that tracks users’ heart rate, calls for help in an emergency and ultimately helps minimize fatalities caused by heart attacks. Frank and Andre’s HeartWatch has been getting a very positive and impressive media coverage with articles in the Toronto Star, appearances in CTV News, and most recently in Global News to name a few. Frank Nguyen and André Bertram presenting their innovative wearable device. We are truly inspired by the energy, passion and creativity put into their project. Their honorable contribution to the home healthcare industry and the wearable technology through the innovative HeartWatch is much needed and will surely have a significant impact in our community. We wish them all the best in their adventure and will keep our eyes peeled for their next steps.
