In a blog for Nature, Ibrahim, while recalling the source of motivation behind his invention, penned:

Being the eldest of the three sons to a gastroenterologist physician and a maxillofacial surgeon, a large part of my summer vacations and leisure time was spent in hospitals. Having seen children in pain and refusing treatment, all while living through the above myself, during cannulation and blooddrawing procedures, I took it upon myself to find a solution to trypanophobia.
