In 4th year, my class was approached with an opportunity to work alongside the Kerby Centre to create products or strategies to help work towards solving one of two major crisis among older adults in Calgary: the use and consistent wear of compression socks, and tackling the discussion about STDs in older adults. 

For my project, I decided to put my focus into looking for a way to help incentivize and motivate older adults to wear their compression socks.
