Designed to make it easier to connect to a wireless network, the 'Wanda' Magic Wand works by simply enabling it to be pointed at a device to work. The 'Wanda' is created to prevent hackers from gaining access to data, whether in a clinic or home environment.

The 'Wanda' is part of a project entitled 'Trustworthy Health and Wellness' (THaW) that is overseen by Dartmouth College. The device looks to protect patient privacy and make it easier to transfer files or gain access for new users.

The 'Wanda' enables devices like smartphones or wearables to connect to a wireless network to share data with healthcare professionals. This allows patients to not have to deal with setting up the connection, which can be confusing or physically impossible for many.
