The product, named "bandu," is designed to fit into watch and bracelet templates and continuously measures the autonomic nervous system. The biosensing technology connects to a smartphone app to help the wearer stay healthy and productive. The autonomic nervous system is the body's regulatory mechanism for controlling heart rate, respiration, and perspiration. Variations in symptoms are associated with stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestion, blood pressure, and other health metrics. Studies are underway to examine a wide range of symptoms from our stressful daily lives.
The technologies behind bandu monitor real-time changes in the user's motion, temperature, and skin conductance to encourage healthy habits including exercising, practicing meditation, and listening to music. During daily life events, the watch-based biosensor alerts the wearer with suggestions on how to increase health, productivity, and happiness. The resulting data is used to triage medical care, evaluate treatment options, and identify pain points.
