4 medtech startups vie for Minnesota high-tech awards
October 05, 2018
Three medtech startups that aim to help people with mobility are among the finalists for the Minnesota High Tech Association’s annual Tekne Awards. Another finalist makes a wearable device to help people break chronic habits.
Through a study funded by the grant award, HabitAware will evaluate the feasibility of Keen as an official treatment for trichotillomania. Simultaneously, Keen will be further developed into a tool for self-administration of Habit Reversal Training (HRT), one of few verified treatments currently in existence.
You, she reminds, are who’s really in control. And that’s where Keen comes in. When the bracelet vibrates, it’s bringing the picking compulsion from the subconscious into the conscious — giving you the ability to then consciously say to yourself “my hands are not where I want them to be”.
