WellBe bracelet, mobile app to help manage stress
Adding to the growing list of healthcare applications, a new technology claims to have created the first anti-stress biofeedback bracelet and app.
The creators of WellBe say the app intendeds to help wearers identify emotional stress triggers and learn immediate solutions on how to relax.
Developed by a group of entrepreneurs, the WellBe bracelet tracks the heart rate for 3 minutes every hour. The app includes an algorithm, which analyzes heart rate variability to determine the wearer’s stress level based on time, location and people present. The WellBe app can also be set to notify when stress exceeds a certain level, and automatically offer a selection of balancing exercises for immediate stress reduction.
Stress has been scientifically proven to have a negative impact on human life, producing numerous problems and conditions such as headaches, fatigue, sleeping disorders, digestive problems, high blood pressure, heart diseases, aging and obesity.
Prudence Hall, founder and medical director of The Hall Center, said: “The WellBe is a powerful tool not just for alleviating stress in the moment, but for helping the body to function optimally for the long-term.”
The WellBe is currently raising funds on Kickstarter for its launch and starts at a price of $109.
