Named after his father, Peter is a device to help those suffering with parkinsons to maintain mobility. Freezing of gait (FoG) is one of the most disabling yet poorly understood symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). FoG is an episodic gait pattern characterized by the inability to step that occurs on initiation or turning while walking, particularly with perception of tight surroundings. One proven treatment for FoG is cues which are external stimuli such as auditory or visual cues designed to improve your motor symptoms.
However, few products used auditory cues because they require a speaker or headphones which means the user can’t hear their surroundings which is potentially dangerous. Peter uses bone conduction technology on via the collar bone to help the user discreetly hear the auditory cue without blocking our their surroundings. The device is worn like a necklace and can be hidden from sight.

With this audacious spirit alignment with words from Steve Jobs, we at Formula2GX Transformation & Innovation Boutique, strive to be pioneers, not just to see the future but to shape it with our bare hands.
Like artists before a blank canvas, we aim to create enterprise masterpieces that leave a lasting imprint on society, using creativity, strategy, design, innovation and technology as our brush and ambition as our palette.
Award criteria will be based on a demonstration of one or many of the criteria below:
Creativity is our rallying cry, our battle standard. It isn’t a siloed function but rather a cross-pollination of ideas borrowed, shared, and repurposed to serve the greater good. Our bold vision drives us to relentlessly push the envelope, forging innovations that stand out from the crowd and echo across the digital divide.
Inclusivity and diversity form the backbone of our ethos. We are unyielding in our belief that good design must be a vehicle for a compelling message. As an open palm can hold more sand than a clenched fist, so can inclusivity and diversity hold more opportunities for creative innovation.
Aesthetics versus impact is not a trade-off in our world, but a harmonious blend. Good design is about balance – it’s not just about looking good, but about adding real value to individuals, communities, and enterprises. Like the silent strength of a lighthouse guiding lost ships, our designs aim to impact lives and guide them towards betterment.
Cause-based design is the lighthouse that guides our endeavours. Sustainability, inclusivity, diversity, equality, energy – these are not mere buzzwords for us, they are the compass by which we steer our ship. And we sail towards the horizon of UN’s EDG Goals, full of hope and ambition, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of a better world.
Entrepreneurial Impact by a disruptive design is rare to find yet when found, you can see the forever value and legacy such designs create.
Physical or Digital or augmentation of both, we will evaluate the projects based on the criteria above.
As Pablo Picasso once said, “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.” And so, we are prepared to challenge norms, break down barriers, and disrupt the status quo in our journey of creation. Because we believe that it’s only in the crucible of bold ambition and relentless innovation that true masterpieces are forged.
We are looking for bold and ambitious interns and potential employees in designing and defining their journey ahead.
We are Formula2GX. For us, Formula to success for any individual or a company, is only two (2) ingredients. To deliver disruptive value through Great Experiences, we should strive to be Passionately and Purposeful in whatever we do.
We are not just a company. We are change-makers.
And we invite you to join us in this epic journey of transforming the world one design at a time. Because every great design has a story. And we can’t wait to hear yours.
