Adolescentes brasileiras desenvolvem app que auxilia pacientes com Alzheimer

O que é ser uma adolescente? Muitas revistas costumam ligar este público-alvo a ideias de futilidade, como fofocas, intrigas e preocupação excessiva com a aparência. Mas estas meninas de São José dos Campos mostram que não é bem assim. Dando um exemplo de inovação e empatia, elas desenvolveram um app destinado a ajudar famílias que lidam com casos de Alzheimer.

Thaís, Débora, Larissa e Ana Paula são estudantes de 13 a 16 anos do Instituto Alpha Lumen, uma escola especializada em alunos de alta capacidade cognitiva, disponibilizando cursos de programação, robótica e cinema, por exemplo. Neste ambiente propício para a execução de novas ideias, as quatro formaram um grupo chamado Ownz Ladies.

“A ideia de criar um aplicativo para auxiliar no tratamento do Alzheimer surgiu com a convivência que uma das desenvolvedoras possui com uma bisavó que sofre com a doença. Percebemos as dificuldades que a família dela enfrentava diariamente no tratamento da doença e percebemos que poderíamos facilitar e melhorar essa rotina com a criação do HelpAlz, conta a página das meninas.

O aplicativo busca ser o mais completo possível, conectando pacientes, familiares, profissionais e clínicas especializadas. Com o HelpAlz em mãos, o usuário pode se informar a respeito de diagnósticos, dicas de cuidado e capacitação, mapas e muito mais. O objetivo é claro: ajudar os portadores da doença a levar uma vida mais segura e confortável.

A iniciativa das Ownz Ladies mostra que nunca é cedo ou tarde para fazer a diferença. Um mundo melhor está ao nosso alcance, basta botar a mão na massa.

  1. Just want to make the note that quality stencils are in that price range. The folks over on Young House Love just bought one for $56.00 so your pricing is right in line with what others are charging! (which you obviously know Kristen- just making a note for the other folks…) Thanks for the great work SO much iniptrasion found on your blog!

  2. Για ολ’ αυτά που απορείς, διάβασε (και) τον Άγιο Νικόδημο τον Αγιορείτη και θα σου λυθούν όλα.Ο Κύριος όταν προσεύχονταν πήγαινε πάντα σε ερημικά μέρη και μόνος.Η φυγή στην έρημο για 40 μέρες και η πάλη με τον σατανά, δείχνει (και) τον δρόμο του μοναχισμού.

  3. They list 7000 B.C. as the earliest date for the Flood, not that it was definitely around 7000 B.C. They have a whole list of arguments about the genealogies–too long to list here. They don’t want to give a definitive date, just to say the 6000 B.C. is wrong. There are gaps in the genealogies, but those gaps can only be stretched so far.I studied under Whitcomb at Grace Seminary and I don’t recall there being much interest in specifying a definitive date for creation, except that 6000 B.C. was wrong. But, I think, 10,000 B.C. was a common viewpoint.

  4. Hey Melody, thanks for taking the time to comment. We’re thankful we could share it when you needed it. The whole point of this journey is to share the Lord and the Word with people and let them know how both impact our lives every day, so it’s always a blessing to know that what we’re doing can make a difference. We’re glad to know you’re following along and we hope you’ll continue to jump in and comment if you feel inspired to do so. We appreciate the prayers, and don’t be afraid to let us know if there’s anything we can pray for you for as well!

  5. Rob & Everyone,Please don’t take me wrong. I love Visual Studio. I live in Visual Studio. I eat, sleep and dream in Visual Studio. I just can’t see paying the additional money over the MSDN Universal for each developer every year. I also can’t see ordering one of each edition (Architect, Developer, Tester) and trading notebooks each time we need to use the new (very cool) role specific tools.As a “recurring software cost” it’s pretty hard to justify the increase in a small-to-medium sized business.

  6. (menos mal que existen las Bibliotecas porque con mi sueldo de mileurista no se de donde iba a sacar para alimentar mi mente …)Para eso estamos Nerdanel, encantados de tenerte por aquí cuando quieras.me hago un lío con las sopas y las ensaladas. Je je, querido Manzacosas es que lo tuyo es el corderito y ese sabe bueno en todas las épocas del año

  7. dijo 2  0 Creo que la implementación de esa habilidad no es para que los “noobs” sepan donde está la tienda secreta, es para ahorrarte clicks y milisegundos mientras ordenas al courier ir hacía ahí. Ahora solo apretas F y listo.

  12. It’s funny you said that because mine actually came with an entire page of “corrections”. I thought that was interesting (and kind of unprofessional?!) The peanut butter ones were accurate though (apart from the note that read how many cookies the recipe yielded)

  13. Žygimantas Bėda su tuo DropBox, kad jis baisiai lėtas, nesvarbu kurioj Europos vietoj bebūčiau, daugiau 100kB/s neišspaudžia. Tad laukt kol susyncrhonizuos 16GB kažkaip nesinori.Kol kas negaliu išbandyt GDrive, bet įdomu būtų palyginti syncrhonizacijos greičius.Beje, yra wuala projektas, kuris synchronizuoja naudojant kelis šaltinius, kas paspartinia syncrhonizacijos greitį. Ir tokių projektų jau yra gan nemažai. Tad išvyst objektyvų palyginimą būtų žiauriai smagu!

  14. Hei:)Å, oppskrift på sokker, den skal jeg prøve. Har fått ferdig sokkene mine, altså første forsøk, men det trengs visst litt mer trening og litt justeringer. Og gratulerer med 100 innlegg, det er imponerende!Ha en fin kveldl.

  15. Flinke de har vore! Og så bra det blei. Vi får ta ein kaffe der eg forer deg med 200 gr sjokolade, 3 dl latter og 1 liter pust ut luft. Da får du litt påfyll for det du har tømt. Hi hi. Du er så søt. 1 dl tårer syntes eg var så sjarmerande. Kos dokke i fine-heimen:)

  16. Scuze ca am aprobat asa tarziu comentariile, nu am stat pe langa blog deloc! Vasile, merci de pont, il stiam deja!! :-)Cricri, am fost azi, a fost super!AI, eu cred ca iti este permis orice in mintea ta, e unica libertate adevarat pe care o avem. Bucura-te de ea, nu ti-o poate lua nimeni!

  17. They didn't actually say that it was pork 'belly', just pork so even if you didn't like fat (FREAK) you wouldn't have liked that. I loved my starter, but not my main and that's what happened last time I went and it puts me off from going back; the inconsistency of it.

  18. matsu様はじめまして。ひとつ質問がありまして、書き込みさせていただきました。上記の手順で行ったのですが、最後に新しいblogのwordpress管理画面へアクセスすると、「すでにインストールされています。テーブルを削除してください」というコメントが表示されます。おそらくconfig.phpの追加の記述がきちんとできていないと思うのです。ここで質問です。わたしはディレクトリ名だけ入れ替えて、下記のような記述を追加したのですが、もし間違えていれば教えてください。// determine table prefix according to the REQUEST_URI$prefix_array = array( ‘/~matsu/milklog’ => ‘wp_milklog_’);if($prefix_array){ $uri = $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’]; foreach($prefix_array as $search_uri => $search_table_prefix){ if(strpos($uri, $search_uri) === false){ continue; } $table_prefix = $search_table_prefix; }}不勉強で恥ずかしいのですが、phpの知識がほとんどないもので。すみませんが、よろしくお願いします。

  19. Fora de contexto ,mais gostaria de ter resposta sobre este assunto .estou numa empresa de venda e reparacao de automovel ,aonde ficamos quando ao salario minimo ,nos servicos financeiros ou nao financeiros .internamente ja esta havendo um conflito entre empregados e empregador

  21. LA VERDAD QUE A VER ESTOS COMENTARIOS LE DOY LA RAZÓN AL DICHO “CADA PUEBLO TIENE EL GOBIERNO QUE SE MERECE”. NO HACEMOS MAS QUE HABLAR Y HABLAR A ESCONDIDAS. ES UNA VERGÃœENZA QUE NO HAGAMOS NADA VERDADERO Y CONCRETO PARA RECLAMAR LO QUE NOS CORRESPONDE. DAMOS VERGÃœENZA COMO SOCIEDAD. NO HACEMOS MAS QUE PELEARNOS ENTRE NOSOTROS, Y LO QUE ES PEOR NOS PELEAMOS SIGUIENDO EL EJEMPLO DE NUESTROS GOBERNANTES. CADA DÍA ESTAMOS MAS HUNDIDOS.

  22.

  23. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you could do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  24. EEC Great article. I have a quick question and have yet to find an answer after much searching on the internet. I am wanting to change the category so it is more specific and hyperlinked. For example, instead of the category on Soulmates Wedding Photography being Professional Services it would say photography with a hyperlink to other photographers in the area. I would like to put eyewear & optometrist both in this area but can’t figure out how. I know other eyecare places have this so it is possible. Do you have any idea how I would go about doing this?!?!

  26. they would not bother to vote because, among other kinds of disenfranchisement, the ballot boxes were quite literally stuffed ahead of time for Paul Biya. I tell this story to people in the U.S. who say they won’t bother to vote, hoping that they will realize what a privilege it is. While we could talk about whether our ballot boxes are metaphorically stuffed, given the amount of money it takes to run for the presidency, etc.,, we are lucky to live in a place where we can say what we like and vote as we see fit. I’m glad you’re an intelligent voice in the world. Keep writing whatever you want.

  27. Barf Kitty just changed places – from Lovely’s bedroom to the living room. She is now ensconced in her “cat cave” – a pile of sheets and blankets on the end of our short couch. I have rewarmed her water bottle (a gallon milk jug) and tucked it in behind her. She’ll be warm there for hours, and out of my lap.

  28. Meu primo precisa tirar a 2ª via do RG pois o documento dele está em péssimo estado de conservação. O primeiro RG dele foi feito no estado de Rio de Janeiro, agora ele mora em SP. Alguém sabe se ele pode fazer a segunda via aqui no estado de SP, se por acaso o numero do RG dele vai ser o mesmo?

  29. Annie, this is a monumental effort by Pham Nguyen. The 30 or so other articles you linked to were also great pieces by this friend of Palestine.OT, for some needing coaching in pronouncing his given name (family names are written first), which is used either as a family name or a given name by almost 40% of Vietnamese, here’s a short fun video on how to properly pronounce it:

  30. of course like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality then again I will certainly come again again.

  31. After examine just a number of of the weblog posts in your website now, and I actually like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website record and can be checking again soon. Pls try my website as well and permit me know what you believe.

  32. WOW i wish i was living there….but New York isn't that bad isnt it? good luck to you all and one lucky girl will have an amazing shopping experience. I love outlets!www.viverenewyork.blogspot.com life style places in New York Cityfollow Mili to see what's going on in the most loved city in the world!

  33. Well its … @314EXODUS Well its not bad at all. You go in and they put this retractor on your mouth to hold it open and they brush each tooth with this cleaner and then they wash it away. Then they put the glue on each tooth and they apply each bracket and light cure each tooth for 5 seconds. Then you go brush your teeth and they apply the wire and rubber bands. Its literally that simple. Its not painful AT ALL.

  34. angelsì capita anche a mesoluzioni possibili? prova a rilassarti, a non pensare che "devi" fare qualcosa, prova solo a capire cosa stai vedendo senza che il tuo cervello in background macini migliaiai di pensieri avulsi 🙂 è solo un meccanismo, alquanto grandicello, ok, la luce ci mette 14 miliardi a varcarlo tutto, ma, ripeto, è solo un meccansimo e tuo compit e osservarlo e comprenderlose ti perdi in paranoie varie non te lo gustispero di averti aiutato un po' perlomeno a riflettere sulle cause delle tue vertigni da abisso 🙂

  35. This is very definitely a case of Man With A Purple Banana syndrome.A man walks into a room with a purple banana. Everyone notices because bananas aren't purple.Next day there are two men with purple bananas, and by the end of the year you can't move for them.In fact, everyone is sick of the sight of them, and irritation soon turns to fisticuffs.Until the man with the blue banana walks in.So it's all about having a banana no-one else has got and remembering how all bananas go off very quickly when peeled.

  36. “The US has better weather?”Got to side with Alex here. The US has only one place where the weather never threatens to kill you: San Francisco. In Europe, on the other hand, the entire west coast from Holland onwards is willing to let you stay alive outdoors year round.

  37. Hello – I must say, I’m impressed with your site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and information was very easy to access. I found what I wanted in no time at all. Pretty awesome. Would appreciate it if you add forums or something, it would be a perfect way for your clients to interact. Great job

  38. 1deMy developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  39. Sweet Molly Green Eyes . . .You are really and old soul. Full of wisdom and hope. I am so blessed to still be part of your life. I have so enjoyed our discussions on life, struggles, the future an “being in the present”. The part about becoming “fully engaged and committed” has encouraged me to write about my life experiences in hopes of helping others. Thank you for your insightfulness in bringing us these words of wisdom. Nicely done!
