Say Hello to Rhea. Say Goodbye to Period Pain.
Rhea is a progressive abdominal wearable that applies heat and TENS therapy to help relieve the symptoms of menstrual cramps. Six individual pads apply localised heat therapy and allow the user to customise their experience and target their pain.
Rhea - Customisability
Rhea has been carefully considered to transcend a technical solution with personal choice by allowing customizability to the outer technical fabric, straps and frame cover. It is a functional solution that carries the empathetic value of what women need.
Rhea - Technology
Rhea's heat therapy technology allows a tailored experience for each user, each day of their period. The heat pads can be isolated to target pain in multiple locations meaning for example, when the user is experiencing pain in specific areas such as the lower abdomen, they are able to tailor the heat settings to that area.
Rhea - Adaptability
Rhea is designed to provide a flexible and ergonomic fit suitable for all women's bodies, whatever shape or size. Using flexible internal electronics, a silicone outer frame for structural integrity and one-handed adjustability, Rhea hugs the abdomen and forms to each individual person.
Rhea - App
The companion app allows users to subtly alter the settings of their device, track their mood, symptoms, diet and cycle. The app can help monitor how the user's diet affects their physical symptoms and will direct users away from foods that may be causing painful flare-ups.

During my year in industry at Kinneir Dufort I worked collaboratively as a member of the front end design team on a
range of active projects. Involvement in user research, human factors studies, strategic workshops, conceptual exploration, refinement and development activities (often in collaboration with in-house engineering teams) has broadened my skillset and made me a more well-rounded designer.
