While still studying at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, Chalfont native Anthony Scarpone-Lambert came up with an invention that he hoped would be a game-changer for nurses, writes Ashley Ahn for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Several months down the line, the recent graduate has decided to forego a career as a clinical nurse and instead focus his energy on his company, Lumify Care, a Wearable Light, which makes wearable LED night-lights for health care workers that are designed not to disturb sleeping patients.

Scarpone-Lambert was inspired to create something innovative while doing clinical rotations in the emergency department during the pandemic.

“I was just always noticing so many insufficiencies that I felt inspired to find solutions for and make more of an impact by creating solutions that make sense for the front-line health care workers,” he said.

Once he had completed his invention of a wearable light, he knew his future would look different than he originally envisaged.

 “I really enjoyed clinical care, but I think for me, specifically, especially during the pandemic, I realized that I really needed to almost be more of a leader in making more of an impact through entrepreneurship,” he said.
