New tool could prevent SIDS

Can technology developed for the music industry be used to prevent sudden infant death syndrome? ASU student Peter Seymour adapted a guitar sensor to detect an infant's heartbeat. The new tool, "Ella's Monitor," alerts parents if anything goes wrong. Seymour graduated from the College of Technology and Innovation in May 2012.
