We are a group of 4 students in the International track of the ESME Sudria, engineering school.
We were asked to build a project around the Sustainable Development Goals. So we've decided to pick up the one about "Good Health and Well Being". That's why we came up with a water purifying bottle that tracks the amount of water you drink during the day. But then we were told that we had to choose between purifying and tracking the amount of water. Thus we had to know who were we adressing this project to and what was the real purpose of this waterbottle.
Today we know that the purpose of doing this project is to improve and insure people's health, in making a bottle that count the amount of water you drank through out the day so you know if you need to drink more or not.
In fact, we want to give a solution for those who don't drink enough, especially the elderly. Older people are more vulnerable to dehydration due to physical changes in the ageing process : these changes include a reduced sensation of thirst. What are the consequences of dehydration, you'll ask us ? It's associated with poor health, increase of diseases, even mortality.
