Coral / Mental healthcare and awareness


Coral brings forth the proposal of offering the reflection upon stress and the corporal awareness process and insert them in the daily life. The final product is a small object designed to be used during small intervals of 8 to 10 minutes.

The small sensors in the bottom part of the product detect the biometric signals of the user (heartbeats and electric conductivity of the skin) and translate them to a color pallete corresponding to the stress level of the person.

Doing such thing, Coral positions itself as a way to bring mental health and wellbeing as a priority, which is not seen in a broad spectrum of among the available products yet.
