Susan Schieren from South Cairo, NY invented a new product that helps people with arm/shoulder/hand disabilities dry their hair. he product is called Halo SS1 and it is a device that suspends a hairdryer above a person's head giving them a hands-free hair drying experience. In July she was notified that the United States Patent and Trademark Office had approved her patent.

"It's a wonderful feeling to create a product that helps the disabled feel more independent", said Schieren. Being a disabled, Vietnam-Era Veteran herself, she fully understands the need for disabled individuals to be self sufficient and not have to rely on others to perform daily grooming needs. Schieren injured her back while serving in the United States Air Force and upon leaving the military went back to college and obtained a Master's degree in Education from Springfield College under the Vocational Rehabilitation Program offered by the Veteran's Administration.
Schieren also stated, "It's also wonderful to experience the thrill of being creative and actually inventing a product that you take from an idea to actual production and sales".Halo SS1 is manufactured and assembled in Watervliet, NY at Extreme Molding. It has actually created at least 4 new jobs for this facility. "We have produced 10,000 units and are now selling the product on the Internet at www.haloss1.com.
Over the past 31 years, Schieren was a successful Program Manager in several of General Electric's businesses. uring the past 11 years she was responsible for leading hiring initiatives/programs credited for hiring over 1,000 Veterans into the company and also managed the Junior Officer Leadership Program. She retired from GE December 1st, 2010 and continues to give back to Veterans by consulting with Corporations on their Veteran's Programs. Schieren also serves on the Board of Directors for a not-for-profit organization, "Grace After Fire" that provides support for and helps women veterans of the United States military who are returning from active duty so that they can re-engage as mothers, wives and daughters in civilian life.
"Transitioning back into civilian life, from the military can be very difficult, especially for a women. I experienced it when I left the military 35 years ago".
In an effort to continue serving our Veteran community, Schieren is donating a portion of the profits from the sale of her product to organizations that assist female veterans transition back into civilian life.
