A former lawyer from Crouch End says her innovation has helped people suffering from disturbed sleep during lockdown.
Anna McKay, along with former IBM engineer Steve Walpole, created the Zeez Sleep Pebble.
The pair claim the device, which is placed under the pillow, emits pulses which match the brainwaves of a good sleeper.
Anna was previously the head of intellectual property at a firm of solicitors, mainly taking on pharmaceutical companies.
"I wanted to work on something that has the ability to be really life changing. I don’t regret leaving law for a second and frankly there is no comparison," she said.

He went on to sell migraine devices using an early precursor to Zeez Sleep’s technology, before the company crashed in the early 90s.
The pair launched their first Zeez Sleep model in 2018 and Anna said mass testing to achieve medical status is one of their aims.
