IUVO shorts contain three modes of pain relief to the to the user. It can be worn underneath everyday clothing allowing for discreet and portable pain management in public and private environments. The shorts are connected and controlled via app.

The area of pain the user wishes to provide pain relief to, the mode of pain relief and the intensity requirements can be selected in the app. After each session user feedback on the pain management is used to adapt the pain relief and personalise the relief from the device for future use.

My final year project on endometriosis which is a condition where tissue grows outside of the uterus on other organs, as this tissue is not released during the period cycle it leads to inflammation which causes severe pain in the body. An estimated 1 in 10 women in the world suffer from this condition. IUVO is a wearable device that can alleviate the pain experienced from endometriosis and also enables users to track their symptoms in order to personalise their pain relief.
I am passionate about design and believe the user, their needs and experience should be the core and constant during the design process. My aim is to design innovative products which consider sustainability and add value both to the users life and in the world. I look forward to learning and gaining more experience in the future to allow me to grow as a designer.
