Stress Watch

We provide a wearable psychological stress sensing and evaluation technology. The system is composed of (1) Human stress sensory pads, (2) Predictive geometric and semi-instantaneous spectral human stress indexing including caregivers friendly output (3) AI/cloud-based diagnosis, feedback and management protocols focusing on the specific applications pertaining to emotional workers/wellbeing. We use a non-invasive ecological platform applicable to both environments.

 

Why Stress

The previous wearable technology focused on human physical healthcare, neglecting the importance of human mental healthcare. The previous human stress sensory devices showed poor wearing comfort required for use in human and/or patients’ daily-life.

Technology

The benefit of the technology and its uniqueness resting with the introduction of longitudinal, objective measures of Physiolocao, Bahavioral and Toplogical -patterns and their subsequent complexity and AI analyses using wearable micro-biosensors. The end-users, nurses in many cases, are presented with simple to read and to understand health indicators they can use for surveillance, interventions, treatment follow-up as well as group-based treatments


Stressors and stress measures

Real, symbolic, or imagined stimuli perceived as threatening by a person represent a stressor.
In the human spe-cies, proximity of other conspecifics can be either soothing or a major stressor depending on the context and the individuals involved.
Many factors constitute a major stressor for the elderly, especially those with cognitive impairment, when they are admitted to or stay in a hospital or nursing home.
Thus, adequate measures against stressors are paramount as a first step to reduce the negative influences of psychological stress to health.
Continuous psychological stress monitoring in daily life is important. There are two conventional methods to measure psychological stress: self-report and body fluid analysis.
The self-report method is hard put to monitor human stress consistently due to the lack of standards for stress status. The body fluid analysis is invasive and cannot measure stress continuously.
