Solving Health Problems With Cars? The Ford Motor Contest Platform Gets Creative
Cars are getting to the point where their technology can do so much – so why not use it’s technology to find ways to monitor people with chronic illnesses and health conditions? If cars have the ability to use night vision to detect a pedestrian and even drive themselves, finding ways to manage a person’s medical health should be doable. Skild has been honored with powering the Ford Motor Company and Henry Ford Health System contest platform that aims to better protect lives with the use of car technology. People over the age of 18 have been invited to participate in the challenge and have the opportunity to win $10,000 in prizes! The challenge will be over and the winners will be selected and announced on June 14, 2016. Right now, 90 percent of senior citizens and about half of Americans are living with chronic health conditions.
