Stress Busting Bra Monitors Overeating
Are you a stress-eater? If you’re desperate to kick that habit and are a girl then a bra could be of great hep. Stress-busting bra is here to tackle the issue of overheating as recent studies show that up to half of the U.S. population complains that they eat more when they are stressed, a condition that has also led to high rates of obesity. A stress-busting bra made with special material monitors the wearers moods and helps to regulate stress eating. Microsoft built the sensor pads with a microprocessor powered by a 3.7-volt battery. The sensors capture heart rate and respiration with an EKG sensor, skin conductance with an electrodermal activity sensor and this is further streamed to an iPhone app. The sensors work for only as long as four hours so the wearer has to recharge their bras to get them topped up.
This can help a stress eater in monitoring her behaviour although some psychologist says that maybe we shouldn’t worry about it so much. “If they feel like eating in a positive situation, they should; if it’s negative, they probably will compensate for that.” I agree, do you?
