Don't Pause for Menopause

Don't Pause for Menopause

This project aimed to help people with menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and sweating. Another aspect was to make menopause more visible and encourage discussions about the fact that it is taboo to talk about in our society. 
A norm creative approach was used to develop a non-medical product: a portable cooling back pad that activates on the elevated body temperature that occurs during a hot flash. The back pad is easy to attach to a variety of seating areas thanks to its adjustable straps. A practical bag helps you to transport the pad between your home, car and office for example.
