Amigo is a monitoring system for girls and boys with asthma, which uses sensors to measure air, pollution, oxygenation and allergensdetects possible environmental agents that could cause respiratory problems in children, in addition to alarming their parents, for timely prevention.

This prototype of an alert system to benefit the health of girls and boys, or people with asthma, began working in March 2024, where they formed a cat-shaped casing in 3d printto be friendly to children who suffer from asthma, as well as in the mechatronics process for air measurement and warning.

Due to the international recognition As part of this project, young people are seeking to patent their work and make the necessary improvements to later be able to put it on the market and help families with asthma problems.
