Grand Prize

The Grand Prize winners are Akshaya Dinesh, Amulya B, and Sowmya Patapati who built reVIVE, an ADHD diagnostic and treatment mechanism using VR.

Diagnosis ADHD is complicated and time-consuming — it can take up to 6–9 months and thousands of dollars. In addition, ADHD diagnosis is based on a variety of subjective factors and there is no definitive, quantifiable way to diagnose it. The judges of the competition are inspired by this VR solution as a diagnostic and treatment mechanism for ADHD. As well, they are impressed with the creativity, technical difficulty and UX of the product.
