Oxygem is a smart ring designed by Hussain Almossawi to provide people with Sickle Cell Disease a better lifestyle and prevention treatment. Sickle Cell Disease has a death rate of 1 per week in a 1,000,000 population. The ring proposes a smart way to prevent death rate with its inside sensors function. It does so by measuring oxygen saturation (SpO2) in the blood and informs the user by showing off different range of lights and radial lines to indicate the level of oxygen. The ring has an e-ink display around it with abstract patterns and shapes which light up depending on the seriousness of the situation.
