Grippy: Smart glove to help out PTSD patients
Grippy is a wearable with a self-reporting tool for stress. The glove contains heartrate and acceleration sensors, a self-reporting pressure sensor and a direct connection to a mobile phone. The glove can estimate the stress level based on the sensor signals combined with data from the phone (location tracking, time of the day). If a patient experiences stress he can self-report that by squeezing the pressure sensor in his hand palm. Grippy and can act as a coach which helps, warns, and sets challenges.
