Wellness Device Helps Users Thwart Stress

While some stress levels may be beneficial, i.e., fight-or-flight situations, too much stress can wear a body down and make one sick, mentally and physically. The first step to controlling stress is to know the symptoms of stress, but recognizing stress symptoms is not easy. Most people are so used to being stressed, they often don't know how stressed they are until they reach a breaking point.

 

U-Check hopes to remedy the great stress invasion by acting like a wearable buddy system. According to its maker, U-Check-It is the world’s first wearable to monitor the stress hormone, cortisol, in real-time. It provides a platform for instantaneous biofeedback about the way people respond to multiple stressors, logs activity, and ultimately assists in developing intervention for stressful events.
