Stress-meter

Stress-meter


A compact device to help determine stress the levels of your body by measuring key parameters:

● Biochemical/hormonal blood count

● Sweat analysis

● Heart rate, heart rate variability,

● Pulse

● Blood oxygen saturation

Form: bracelet, patch, ring.


Know-how


1. Comprehensive assessment on the work of internal organs and biochemical composition of human blood. Measurement of organ readings that are regulated by the autonomic nervous system and are not subject to conscious control: heart work, breathing intensity, electrical activity of the skin, measurement of hormone levels in the blood.

2. In-house development of a non-invasive method of determining cortisol levels in the blood.


Function:


The stress meter determines the level of stress and its effect on human health. It allows us to monitor changes in the emotional state over time. Helps to determine the source of anxiety, helps to balance the psychological and physical state.


Competitive advantages:


Devices available on the market offer identification of stress level by one or two parameters: mainly heart rate and heart rhythm variability.

The device under development takes readings of 4-6 parameters at the same time. It increases the accuracy of the data by several times.






Use:


● Assessment of stress levels in professions associated with increased responsibility for people's lives: pilots, bus drivers, train operators.

● Work with autistic children, children with Down's syndrome, with patients in intensive care units and patients who don't have the ability to talk about their condition.

● Working with adolescents, helping to rehabilitate people who have suffered emotional distress.

● Support and rehabilitation of athletes

● Use in daily life for anyone living in a modern stressful environment.


Stress measurement standard


The device can serve as a tool for defining standards and allow to measure stress and become an analogue of thermometer, tonometer, pulse oximeter in the field of psychophysiological diagnostics of human health.
