Iran researchers design stress calculator


Iranian researchers have developed a device in the form of a bracelet, which can be used to calculate and register the amount of people’s stress.

Dr. Hossein Hassanpour, one of the project’s researchers, said the device is supposed to be equipped with a computer game, which can be used to reduce people’s stress.

He said one way the device can be used on professional athletes and said, “One of the problems of professional athletes in national teams’ camps is stress, which even themselves are not aware of. Even the least amount of stress sometimes changes the result of a game.”

Stress accelerates heartbeat and reduces skin resistance, Hassanpour said and noted, “Therefore by calculating the amount of skin resistance through sensors attached to fingers, one can produce signals…, which indicate 16 signs of stress.”

The researcher said the bracelet is connected to computer through Bluetooth, showing the amount of stress in the form of sound, image or a chart.
