This week, a Twin Cities couple, Sameer and Aneela Idnani Kumar,, won first place in the nation’s largest competition for entrepreneurs. The Minnesota Cup’s grand prize of $50,000 went to a company called HabitAware. The company make a tracker called Keen that is worn on the wrist. It’s for people who need help managing impulse control issues like hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting and thumb sucking.
"“The first step, as a certified trichologist, is to address this as a mental-health and behavioral condition, not a hair condition,” Bridgette Hill says. To reduce the frequency and severity of hair-pulling episodes, she recommends seeking out a mental-health professional, joining a support group, or trying the HabitAware Keen, a smart bracelet that essentially trains you out of your triggers."
