Stress Detector + Reliever for Astronauts
SPACE IS STRESSFUL
In space and aboard the ISS, astronauts are constantly exposed to high stress situations where peaks of stress can come at any time. Having to perform difficult and important tasks every day, astronauts must be able to anticipate this stress and be able to remain calm without disrupting their work.
Corey Simon from NASA's WEAR Lab challenged us to design a wearable device that helps astronauts either detect or relieves stress. We decided to do both.
Volve aims to help astronauts detect + relieve their stress
Where on the body is the best place for the device?
