Adolescence is a pivotal phase in human development. Teens experience physiological and psychological changes that impact their circadian rhythm and affect sleep quality. Environmental factors such as increased screen-time, societal pressures, and extracurriculars further affect sleep quality. Through a comprehensive evaluation of competing products, we identified a need for a sleep solution tailored for teens. We aimed to ideate solutions that would improve sleep without changing established routines before bedtime. To do this, we conducted online surveys with over 100 responses in our target demographic. These responses helped us ideate solutions and develop a 1 hour co-create like session that would be conducted with teens in our target age demographic.
The culmination of our 8 week accelerator resulted in a physical product that aimed towards teens ages 11-16. I was responsible for designing the CAD mockups that would be passed on to Philips Respironics along with our research findings. The image on the right is an early concept rendering of the design, not the final product.
