Presentation Summary

As we all know, Stress is part of our daily life and can potentially lead to headaches, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and lower quality of sleep. According to, Stress costs American industry more than $300 billion annually in lost productivity and healthcare costs.
Today's Wearables are able to monitor physical stress to some level but fail to monitor overall stress including mental stress. Most wearables, today, use heart rate variability (HRV) to monitor physical stress. However, by complimenting HRV with galvanic skin response (GSR) measurement, Wearables should be able to monitor (and help manage) overall stress.
