Women who suffer from menopausal symptoms, such as the dreaded hot flashes, know how uncomfortable it can be. To counter this problem, graduate design student Peter Astbury created Grace, a wristband that can detect a hot flash a minute before it happens and release a cooling sensation to counter it.

Grace detects the onset of a hot flash with sensors and then triggers the wristband’s cooling mechanism. This cooling sensation then sends a signal to the brain to make the body react in the opposite way. Grace can also prevent hot flashes at night.

Astbury designed Grace for his final year project at the Industrial Design and Technology at Loughborough Design School in England. He was the runner-up for the 2017 James Dyson Award.

For a simple user experience, Grace is powered by batteries, which can last for up to 15 hours of use.
