The Cavity Crusher:
Speaking to a media channel, Mohammad Yasir shared that their device is inspired by the biggest problem children face: cavity. While looking up on the internet, Yasir came across a study which said that tooth cavities in children have become the number one chronic illness in the world.
When he searched for the reason, he came to know that it is basically because children don’t brush their teeth for the recommended four minutes. Providing a solution to the issue, they came up with an innovative device Cavity crusher.
Cavity crusher monitors if the child has brushed their teeth or not and for how many minutes. After keeping a record of the child’s brushing habits, they are sent to the parents so they are aware of it.
