I met this incredible team at the 2016 MIT Hacking Medicine and worked with them on a device that helps Parkinson's patients overcome freezing of gait. Our prototype and business plan was recognized as a finalist in the Healthcare at Home track.
I continued with StartGait after the hackathon, doing UI/UX design for the future mobile application that pairs with the device. Understanding Parkinson's from a neural and cognitive perspective definitely helped me design the interface and speak to patients.
What I learned: Creating wireframes, user testing, designing for accessibility
