THE PROBLEM, and our WHY
According to the World Health Organization, 450 million people globally suffer from mental disorders. In the US alone, 1 out of 5 adults struggle with mental health, while those disorders cost $467 billion annually to the US economy.
Nowadays, we have an extensive variety of tools to manage and monitor our physical well-being, but we still have nothing to help us with our emotional and mental health. The chosen treatments remain mainly psychotherapy and drugs.
The solution lies within a new era of Augmented Mental Health, in which emotion recognition technologies will be used to monitor and provide real-time support to people suffering from clinical and subclinical mental health issues. Similar to how a cardiologist uses a blood pressure monitor or how a diabetic uses a glucose monitor, the psychotherapist will use Emotiscopes like Feel to augment the effectiveness of therapy.
First Product: Feel – World’s First Emotion Sensor & Mental Health Advisor that monitors and recognizes your emotions to help you live a happier life. The emotion-sensing wristband and the app coaches people suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression to better manage their mental health.
Feel exists at the intersection of Affective Computing (Technology) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Theory (Psychology) with the mission to help 100 million people improve and better manage their emotional lives by 2025.
Developed by a team of cross-disciplinary PhD researchers, it consists of 3 parts: The Wristband, Proprietary Algorithms, and the Mobile Application. The Wristband has five integrated bio-sensors that monitor a variety of physiological signals throughout the day, while in the background, Proprietary Algorithms analyze these signals to recognize the wearer’s emotions. The mobile application receives the data from the wristband and monitors the emotions of the user, providing personalized recommendations as well as real-time coaching and intervention based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Through continuous monitoring and real-time coaching and intervention Feel helps you develop deeper emotional awareness and constructively reach emotional and mental health goals.
