Students from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) won first place in the Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge 2017 held in California,
The team from NUST, comprising of Hooriya Anam, Awais Shafique, and Arsalan Javed, defeated teams from across the world with their anti-tremor prototype project TAME.
TAME is a project which seeks to develop wearable technology for the suppression of real-time pathological tremors without hindering the voluntary movement of the patient.
This year the competition’s theme was focused on design projects and products which were developed to optimise the lives of human beings.
The team from Pakistan competed against groups from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cornell University, Virginia Tech, University of Sao Paolo, Beijing University and Stanford University itself to bag the competition which offers a cash prize and free entrepreneurial-related guidance to the winners.
