About the project

Jaber’s invention, entitled ‘Automated Home Pharmacy’, aims to help the elderly consume their prescribed medication at the right time. He noticed that many older, sick people in his society depended on family members to take their medicine on a daily basis which is why he decided to address this issue by creating an automated system. He believes his invention will enable the elderly to become more independent and will facilitate their daily lives.

Personal Reflection

For Jaber, Stars of Science is only the beginning of the entrepreneurship journey where all the help is provided. “It was a very valuable and rewarding experience to be on Stars of Science but many challenges face the entrepreneurs afterward and we have to be ready for that” says Jaber.
