A project led by Dr. Hammad Cheema has won the Best IT Innovation award (BITA) 2014 on 18th December 2014 in Islamabad. The team including BEE-3 students Fawad, Kulsoom, Usman and Saad has demonstrated a wearable device for accurate and real-time quantification of essential tremors. This device has potential to improve lives of millions of people suffering from neurological disorders.
There were 96 submissions in total out of which 7 were shortlisted for final presentations. It is heartening to note that 3 out of 7 finalists were from SEECS. The financial award will be utilized to take the device from the prototype stage to a market-ready product.
