GVSU students sweep Outdoor Weber Idea Competition


Two Grand Valley State University students placed first and second in the Outdoor Weber Idea Competition on Friday, March 23. The first-place team, consisting of Jordan Vanderham and Jared Seifert, created the Orindi Mask, which allows wearers to breathe warm air even in cold temperatures. Taking second place was Katarina Samardzija, who created Locker Lifestyle, which allows wearers to take small valuables with them while being active.

The first-place winners took home $30,000 to put toward the capitalization of their products, while second place took home $7,500. Vanderham said the $30,000 that the Orindi Mask won is going toward executing the already-high demand for masks.

Vanderham also said he and Seifert were flabbergasted when it was announced that they won.

“Well, we were shocked. We were really surprised. It was fourth, third, second, then were were like, 'Is it us?'" Vanderham said. "Because we didn’t know who the top competitor was or what their product was. We weren’t confident that we won, but they called our name, and we just kinda awestruck walked up and smiled and shook all of their hands and stood up on the stage.”

We suggest that you do persevere with the asthma drugs which your doctor has prescribed and recommend that if possible you give the treatment using a spacer device. Some of these devices (e.g. Aerochamber and BabyhaJer) have masks attached, and can be used effectively for very young babies. Masks may be attached to the other types of spacer (Volumatic, Nebuhaler, Able Spacer, Fisonair). Your baby can be held in your arms, but for preference should be lying down.

Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured

Keep in mind that a cough may not be a symptom of a cold; it could signal pneumonia or asthma. Even if you do not hear much wheezing, the presence of a cough can indicate that some degree of reactive airway disease or an acute asthma attack may be taking place. The emergency care of a child with shortness of breath is the same as it is for an adult, including the use of supplemental oxygen. However, many small children will not tolerate (or may refuse to wear) a face mask.
