As a result of Ms. Lavine’s years of leadership in research and development of consumer, medical and military markets for stroboscopic wearable-tech, Heugenis Inc is able to leverage this expertise to fast-track a go-to-market wearable-tech appliance, with a very short timeline for delivery to the consumer marketplace.
