Why we think it is awesome
Not only does this wearable help users users become more aware of their bodily and mental functions, it helps train them to improve their powers of self regulation.
Lief Therapeutics Smart Patch stands out
- Designed to comfortably fit and bend with your torso
- The patch is just 6mm thin and sits under your clothing discreetly
- Uses short 3-minute biofeedback exercises or “doses” as a central training tool in building long-term results
- Support app helps you record your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and sensations
What makes us hesitate
Lief claims to have a built and tested a very effective prototype with proven results at helping users control their stress levels. Just how effective it really is remains to be seen. They point out that challenges associated with scaling up production with their manufacturing partner could lead to delays in their shipping date
