Sweating it out during morning workouts requires people to stay hydrated to prevent exhaustion. And athletes in the Middle East need to drink enough water for a long-distance run under the sun. But is there a way to know the precise amount of water needed to avoid dehydration?
UAE-based medical student Mezna Yunus Almansouri has invented a solar-powered device that measures sodium levels from sweat. The young inventor has created the tech to inform athletes how much liquid they need to maintain body water levels. Mezna’s invention has bagged the gold medal at the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups Innovation Competition.
Student innovators play a significant role in developing futuristic concepts across the Middle East. Last month, school kids in Dubai created a sensor that reminds people about maintaining social distance. Similarly, students at the American University of Sharjah developed pollution mapping tech to alert people about air quality.
