Sharing is caring!

Thinkstr’s favorite crowdsourced project of the month is the Lief Smart Smart Patch. 

Every month we pick our favorite crowdsourced project of the month.

At Thinkstr, we are big fans of crowdfunding platforms because they have enabled so many creative projects and technical innovations.

Our favorite this month is Lief Therapeutics’ Smart Patch. Lief tracks and optimizes your resiliency to stress by increasing your natural heart rate variability (HRV), a biomarker of your physical and psychological health.

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
