Mento / Stress monitoring device

BODYFRIEND DESIGN PRIZE by iF 2016

Stress can be measured! Mento is a wearable device that keeps track of your stress level by checking your heart rate via HRV scanning technology. It is connected via Bluetooth to your smart phone or tablet and alarms you if your stress level could harm your body. If you are really stressed mento gives you information of doctors and you can even make an appointment. Handling stress by visualizing it, is key to therapy and you won´t be left alone with your problem.

While wearing mento you can listen to music via bone conduction technology and relax your muscles through heat therapy. The product is designed as a neckrest in order to keep it out

Compared to other similar ideas, this concept has already been very well thought through, but it also still exhibits a lot of potential. For example: an app could collect the user’s information and forward it to the desired recipient(s). Well done!
