A young student in Fredericton is using her brain to help people with disabilities.

Lily Dolan has invented a set of headphones that encourage people with neck problems to keep their head up. If they don't, the music doesn't play. 

"I wanted to help people who have cerebral palsy at the Stan Cassidy Centre to lift their heads up," said Dolan.

"It would motivate them to lift their heads up and not keep their heads down."
