THERMOREGULATING WEARABLES FOR
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
Project Overview

Skills Developed:

  • Design Research

  • Usability Testing

  • Persona Development

  • Product Management

People living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can have difficulty adapting to temperature changes, making day to day activities more difficult.

Sola is a thermoregulating wearable device that aims to automatically regulate the body temperature to give independence and comfort back to people living with MS.

This technology can be expanded to people experiencing menopause, hypothyroidism, and Parkinson's making the total addressable market size 66 million people in the United States.

Research Findings

Product needs to:

  • Be small and attach to clothes already owned

  • Be discrete and unnoticed by others

  • Last for a work day

  • Be skin-sensitive

  • Regulate temperature proactively

"My MS prevents me from being able to hang out with my friends outdoors"

"I can't wear a lot of clothes which normally I could, because of my hypersensitivity to temperature"

"I wish I had a portable AC that I could carry with me everywhere"
