Student Creates App to Prevent Night Terrors in Veterans with PTSD
Drawing inspiration from his father's struggles with night terrors, Macalester College senior Tyler Skluzacek created an app to help all veterans with PTSD.
To help veterans sleep better at night, my team and I have developed myBivy, an application for smartphone and smartwatch that tracks a veteran's heartbeat and movements in order to track night terrors and actually prevent them over time. Post-sleep, the veteran can see how they slept the previous night, while also having the option to submit a statistical report to their VA doctor or clinician.
Tyler has a Kickstarter campaign set up. The project has far surpassed the goal, but something like this is worth pledging money towards.
