CNN selects U.A.E.'s young inventor among world's most impressive young medical pioneers

17/08/2014

CNN has selected U.A.E.'s young inventor Adeeb Alblooshi, 10, as one of the world's eight most impressive young medical pioneers.

In its Vital Signs programme, a monthly programme bringing viewers health stories from around the world, the CNN spoke about eight whiz kids who will shape the future of medicine.

On the Dubai-based young mind, it said: 'It was a trip to the beach that sparked Adeeb Alblooshi's inventing career. When his father -- who had suffered from polio -- could not go swimming because of his prosthetic leg, Adeeb, then six, made him a waterproof alternative using an enhanced medical wax coating. Soon after, he created a small vibrating robot to help his mother clean small spaces. It wasn't long before the media, and subsequently the Dubai government, came calling.

'With the government's supervision and funding, he's come up with five more inventions since then, including a seat belt that monitors a passenger's heart rate and alerts the authorities when it's too high or low,' the CNN report said.

'Since April, he's been on an international scientific tour with the Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology, which has had him attending academic conferences, meeting with researchers, and even attending space camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Alabama.' "I've learned a lot, but most importantly, I'm having fun while doing it," he says.
