Wearables are everywhere. In the medical field they are transforming lives. Haiyan Zhang, Innovation Director at Microsoft Research, created a wearable for a young graphic designer that developed Parkinson’s. Parkinson’s is a condition that inhibits movement, and this wearable allows the Parkinson’s patient to write and draw again. Haiyan explained the research process and the technical aspects of how it works.

Edaena Salinas of The Women in Tech Show interviewed Haiyan for this episode. They talked about the Internet of Things, the components of these systems and the technical challenges. Haiyan also explained her path from software engineering to design and the process of commercializing products that come from research.
