FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Remote real time monitoring of dehydration has short and long term value implications. In the short term, dehydration may lead to severe health issues. Furthermore,even mild levels of dehydartion may lead to impairment of cognitive and motor abilities.Therefore, keeping a suitable hydration level may help to prevent accidents (human failures) and improve efficacy. On the long term, chronic mild dehydration may lead to severe kidney malfunctions. This is a liability that will increase medical care bills in the long run
