This Biosensing Patch Helps You Manage Your Stress

This wearable device is designed to provide calming exercises when the user’s heart and breathing rates indicates elevated levels of stress.


Whenever we experience stress (especially the bad kind) it can be difficult to manage. That’s why a startup company created a wearable that can help manage stress and regulate it–the Lief smart patch. This wearable device is designed to provide calming exercises when the user’s heart and breathing rates indicates elevated levels of stress.

The Lief smart patch consists of a 3-axis gyroscope and an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor that records movement as well as heartbeats accurately to the millisecond. The device is enclosed in a flexible silicone exterior and is worn as a “patch” stuck against the body-specifically under the pectoral muscle close to the heart.

The device works by focusing on the user’s heart rate variability (HRV), that is the amount of time in between each heartbeat, as well as how it relates to breathing cycles. When the device senses stress signals, the patch will initiate a biofeedback training exercise. A pair of haptic motors will quietly vibrate and produce a pattern wherein the users would sync their breath with over a duration of 3 minutes. Users are given the option to initiate one out of four different exercises to practice breathing at any time. According to the creators, these exercises improve the HRV by around 140%.

That’s not all, the smart patch also has a partner mobile app that’s available on both Android and iOS, to show data insights that are presented through graphs and charts. The data is stored on the patch and is transmitted to your smartphone via Bluetooth. It’s very convenient too, since the device is already stuck to your chest, you don’t have to worry about searching for something to alleviate your stress like grabbing a cigarette, or smelling some lemons, or grabbing an unnecessary snack. It’s certainly convenient for professionals on the go.

One of many wearable device problems is their charging time. Well, this smart patch doesn’t have to be maintained too much, since its internal battery was designed to last up to one week and only needs to be charged via micro USB for only an hour.
