A Ferrari engine for a brain and the brakes of a bicycle.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition caused by low levels of norepinephrine and dopamine. These neurotransmitters radically affect the executive functions of the brain which are responsible for the regulation and control of behaviour, motivation and perception. This can be identified by a combination of restlessness, impulsivity, and inattentiveness, among others.
Whilst there is effective treatment for this disorder, people who suffer from ADHD (like myself) are often quite forgetful and chaotic. This means that most people with ADHD either forget to take their medication completely or sometimes double the dose unintentionally.
Hyperkinetic explores the possibility of a transdermal method of drug administration. It proposes a system within a watch to ensure sufferers receive the medication they require throughout the day. Challenging the status quo of how wearable tech is designed, Hyperkinetic strives for a more holistic human-centred solution where the sufferer doesn’t feel like a patient.
