17 Year Old Teen Creates A Device That Can Detect Silent Heart Attacks

How many of you follow TED talks regularly? They are not only informative and educative but also highly inspiring. Today we are going to talk about one such inspiring and moving TED talk that also conveyed a crucial message to the audience. The talk was given by Akash Manoj, a 17-year old boy, and moved the hearts of those who listened to it.

Akash Manoj, now 17, was 13 when he lost a grandparent. The love of grandparents knows no bounds and transcends everything. Akash decided to do something about it rather than just suffer through the loss. In his own words, Akash Manoj decided to go ‘on a war’ with this deadly condition that had caused him one of his grandparents.

The TED talk’s description states, ‘You probably know the common symptoms of a heart attack: chest and arm pain, shortness of breath and fatigue. But there’s another kind that’s just as deadly and harder to detect because the symptoms are silent. In this quick talk, 17-year-old inventor Akash Manoj shares the device he’s developed to stop this silent killer: a noninvasive, inexpensive, wearable patch that alerts patients during a critical moment that could mean the difference between life and death.’

This talk by Akash Manoj is a must-watch. You will see Akash Manoj going through all of the stats that you need to know and then unveils his device that can help you to identify when the silent heart attack is affecting your loved one. We believe that the ultimate message from Manoj in this incredible TED talk is that we can do more and be better.

If this young boy was able to come up with such a useful gadget at such a young age, imagine what we all could achieve if we put our mind to the right task!
