Bronx teen Kenneth Shinozuka among Google Science Fair global finalistsPosted: Updated:
A Bronx teen is one of only 15 Google Science Fair global finalists.
Kenneth Shinozuka developed a small wearable sensor for Alzheimer's patients who have a tendency to wander, like his own grandfather.
The pressure sensor he created goes on the bottom of the foot and can detect when a patient steps on the floor, sending a signal to their caregiver's smartphone.
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Bronx) released a statement, saying in part that Shinozuka's work "represents the promise of our future."
