Emotion Guardian / Emotional assistance

Emotion Guardian
Emotion Guardian

1)Design definition:A product designed to assist in emotional management for long-term hospitalized patients, providing more active psychological support for treatment and bringing a dignified life.

2)Goal of design:Long-term hospitalization is a depressing atmosphere and noisy environment that people may face. Behavioral psychology therapy believes that people's emotions will affect their health. Based on this theory, emotional guards remind patients by signals that they are suffering from negative emotions, and guide them to relieve tension, so as to cultivate emotional control ability and form a positive attitude to deal with diseases.
