Wearables in Healthcare Challenge

Alex Hwang, PhD, won the Muse Award, a sub-category competition of the Wearables in Healthcare Pilot Challenge by Medstro.

Dr. Hwang's idea was to use the Muse, which is a compact version of an electroencephalogram that measures electrical signals in the brain, to measure the level of visually induced motion sickness while using head mounted displays. Dr. Hwang was also one of 10 finalists invited to present at the 2015 Google Wearables in Healthcare Pilot Challenge at Google’s Cambridge headquarters on April 23, 2015.
