A student says she feels "privileged" that a device that could transform the lives of people with bipolar disorder is on display at the Design Museum.

Megan Harley, 22, designed a wristband and app to provide sufferers with ways to measure, monitor and manage their sleep pattern.

The device, which is called ‘aware’, can also inform family members, friends and psychiatrists of the patient's sleep patterns.

Megan, who created the product for her final year project at Middlesex Univeristy, in The Burroughs, Hendon, was shortlisted for the AXA PP Health Tech and You exhibiton.

Now her product is being showcased at the Design Museum in central London until April 26.

Ms Harley was inspired to create the gadget after a family member was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which can cause elevated mood swings.

The student said: “It’s such an amazing opportunity to have my work displayed in the Design Museum so early on in my career.

“I feel really privileged to have been selected by industry experts from among more than 120 products developed by professional companies. I’m currently looking for investment to develop it further, but I’m pleased that the judges saw the potential in it.

“I’ve been contacted by people around the world asking when it will be available, so hopefully having it showcased in somewhere as prestigious as the Design Museum will be stepping stone to making it available.”
