Enlighten: A system to help manage your SAD

Enlighten is a system of three components: a light therapy box, a wearable light sensor, and an app to help SAD sufferers keep track of their treatment methods. This product was developed as the second half of a low-tech/hi-tech project.

Problem Space

How can SAD sufferers better manage their symptoms and gain control of their condition?

The Research

In developing the first part of the project, the lo-tech product, I conducted research in order to understand SAD sufferers and the problems they faced. This involved talking to licensed psychologists, doing extensive online searches, combing through SAD internet forums, and, ultimately, creating a make tool and speaking to SAD sufferers directly.
