A device for treating dry eye symptoms

When the natural blinking mechanism fails, eyes become painful and vulnerable to infection

BlinkAid is a non-invasive medical device that induces artificial blinking and tear secretion, vital mechanisms that protect the cornea from dust and dirt. This enhanced pair of glasses can manage the user's blinking cycle via Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. This is achieved by placing electrodes over the nerve’s “motor points” and conducting a modulated pulse, which activates the muscle artificially where normal functionality is impaired.

    Engineer by mind, designer by heart, problem solver by nature. Hello, my name is Raz and I'm fascinated by projects where technology and design meet to create something awesome that improves our lives. I hold a B.Sc in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a B.Des in Industrial Design from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. Both with honors and distinction. I am a senior software developer with experience in cyber security and embedded programming, trained in the Israeli military and industry. I'm an enthusiastic teacher who taught orthodox women to code, instructed children on digital fabrication and robotics, and won international competitions and awards. My current focus is on launching a new medical device company to treat Dry Eye Disease, using a patented solution I developed with a team of Ophtalmologists. more
