A Ferrari engine for a brain and the brakes of a bicycle. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition that affects the brain’s executive functions, causing low levels of norepinephrine and dopamine both of which radically affect our brains neurotransmitters, responsible for regulating and controlling behavior, motivation and perception. Whilst there is an effective treatment for this disorder, people like her, who suffer from ADHD are often, by the very nature of the condition itself, quite forgetful and chaotic. This means that most people with ADHD either completely forget to take their medication 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 approach looking for a human-centered solution in which the sufferer doesn’t feel like a patient whilst also creating an emotional attachment to it.
Hyperkinetic strives to make a beautifully designed watch, that will have the technological and medical advances that will help to deliver the medication necessary but will have the aesthetics of a piece of jewelry, creating an emotional bond.
In contrast to smartwatches, Hyperkinetic is designed to balance your life, not to be controlled by it.
