Behind-the-ear device reduces stress levels

Researchers from Feelmore Labs presented the Cove device - it attaches to the ears and periodically

massages the temporal part of the head with vibrations. Scientists note that if you wear it for 20 minutes a day, the user becomes more resistant to stress, relaxes more easily and falls asleep.

Сove uses vibrations and massages the areaHeads behind the user's ears - The researchers who developed this device refer to these movements as akin to affective touch. Scientists originally planned to use micro-charges of electricity, which are also considered to be an effective method for dealing with stress, but later decided to focus on vibrations. In preliminary tests, users reported a decrease in stress levels over the course of a month.

New sensor is sewn into clothing and monitors health through sweat

The equipment is paired with an application foriOS and Android that can be used to track the user's progress. In addition, it can develop a "stress meter" that determines at what point the device should work. However, the process will not interfere with work, jogging, or other daily activities.

Scientists have previously presented a new sensor thatcan be sewn into clothes - the device monitors all indicators of the body through sweat. The data is refreshed every 5-30 seconds. It can be used to diagnose and monitor acute and chronic illnesses or monitor health conditions during sports. The device, described in NPJ Flexible Electronics, consists of special sensitive filaments and electronic components. It is able to transfer data, as well as collect, store and process them in real time.
