The OneRing is an innovative health wearable designed by a high school freshman that acts as a digital tremor monitor for Parkinson's patients. The ring can track data and relay it to an accompanying app for consumers and doctors to have a better understanding of the patient's medical status.

The OneRing offers a non-intrusive way to track the health of someone diagnosed with Parkinson's that doesn't interfere with their daily lifestyle. The gadget is designed like a piece of wearable jewelry and sources its name from the popular Lord of the Rings series. The device is able to track tremors and provide detailed analytics to a corresponding iOS platform. The movements found in the tremors are then divided up into three different categories for easier diagnostic understanding by both patients and doctors.
