Her brainchild, Fleo, is a writing aid for those with Parkinson’s tremors.
A National Institute of Design (NID) graduate, Ashwathy had developed the pen as part of her third-year curriculum in her Product Design course.
The JamesDyson Award, an international student design award, challenges young people to ‘design something that solves a problem’.
While an overall international winner is chosen, a national winner and three runners-up are chosen from the participating countries.
According to Ashwathy, Fleo, derived from ‘flow’, works on gyroscopic principles to stabilise and reduce tremor impacts, facilitating a more confident and efficient writing/drawing.
