Jessica Bishop, a senior in the Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering department, suffers from Raynaud’s disease, an illness characterized by reduced blood flow in the extremities as a result of cold or stress. When given the opportunity to propose a Capstone Design project, Bishop proposed the development of a thermo-regulated glove that restores heat to the affected areas. Ryan Beaver, Nathan Kirby and Alisa Sverdlov quickly jumped on board with the idea and under the faculty mentorship of Mohamed Gad-el-Hak, Ph.D., the students are well on their way to providing hope to those suffering from this disease.
