Family caregivers fill a critical need in our healthcare system. Yet virtually no healthcare resources are used to support caregivers. Caregivers are often completely overwhelmed by the newfound duties, and are hesitant to ask for help because they don't know they can ask for help, or feel ashamed or embarrassed.

Scientifidy helps people make intelligent and informed buying decisions and remove the feeling of buyer’s remorse. It's an online collaborative platform that is going to revolutionize how we research products and make buying decisions. Think of it as kind of like a Yelp for consumer goods in the $100 on up range. People sign up and register their products to start tracking things like: parts that break or wear out, time spent maintaining and cleaning, and cost of repairs or maintenance, etc. The platform will provide charts that will show a user’s data compared to the average of everyone else for the "product life span" and "cost of ownership" which is based on time and dollars you invest to keep the product running like new. This is hard data, which can be used to show why one brand or product is better than another and not based on someone's opinion. This is data that is tracked over the life of the product and not based on what you think of it at the time of purchase. This is information manufactures will pay for.
