Encora Therapeutics

Encora Therapeutics is developing smart wearable devices that can track tremor progression and provide personalized hand tremor relief in real-time for individuals with neurological movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Essential Tremor, all without causing side effects or tremor management burden.

Internship – Virtual / Company HQ – Boston, MA

The device uses mechanical vibration to reduce hand tremors; consequently, the vibration is audible. The noise of the device serves as a barrier for widespread adoption of Encora’s device beyond at-home usage because it reduces the discretion of the device. The internship project aims to reduce the noise level of the wearable while still maintaining the same amplitude range of vibratory stimulation for tremor reduction.

Required / Desired Skills

The applicant should have prior experience with designing, CAD-ing, and prototyping electro-mechanical systems.

It would be preferred if the applicant also has experience coding in Python and/or C/C++, and experience with prototyping platforms such as Arduino.

Encora is looking for self-starters; someone who can identify problems and suggest solutions to those problems without requiring direct management.

Anything else?

To the Trust Center, thank you very much for this opportunity.

To potential applicants, Encora is a team of 4 MIT engineers who spun off a 2.009 project into a startup because of a sense of responsibility to make a much-needed solution for hand tremors available. Excited to work with you this summer!
