She spent six months on prototyping this new wearable device for one of her friend, Emma Lawton. She wanted to help her friend who was suffering from Parkinson's disease in 2013.

How does this device work?

Since Miss Lawton was finding it difficult to write because of this disease, Emma watch was perfectly designed keeping this in mind.

One can easily wear this on their wrist so that the device will be able to send some vibrations to the user's brain and forces to focus on that wrist. This will directly help in stopping the muscle tremors.

Can be connected to Windows 10 tablet

Since the pattern of vibration differs from person to person, one can connect this wearable to Windows 10 tablet which has an app to control the vibration speed.
