Managing stress through smarter breathing
Digital Physical

A collaboration with iBreve to design a wearable system for tracking and improving breathing patterns

One of the best mechanisms for managing stress is breathing in the correct manner. We designed a system - including a wearable device and mobile application - that could empower women to understand and adapt their breathing accordingly. A male version will be coming later

A key challenge was to design a device that would attach to any bra whilst still being comfortable, and able to provide real time feedback to the user, something no other product currently does

The first generation of the App provides feedback on the speed and size of each breath, whilst also including some gamification to make it more motivating and fun. The vision is to further develop the App into something more meaningful, integrating activities like yoga and exercise, with other links to relevant services and information
