Feel is an emotion-sensing wristband and mobile application that coaches people to better manage their mental health and achieve emotional well-being goals.

How do I wear my Feel correctly?
Place the side with the sensors at the underside of the wrist. It’s better to wear it snug so you have better skin contact with the sensors.

How often does Feel measure signals?
Feel is equipped with 5 sensors which continuously and unobtrusively monitor your bodily signals 24/7.  

What kind of data does Feel collect?
Feel collects physiological data such as electrodermal activity, blood volume pulse, and skin temperature to provide emotion tracking and recognition, as well as measure movement and activity.  

Is Feel waterproof?
Feel is splash proof, which means you shouldn’t swim with it but you can wash your hands, do house work, etc. without any issues.  

What sizes and colors are available?

You can switch off your Feel during the night. However, if you take off your Feel, the wristband will be set automatically in a "deep sleep" mode (aka OFF mode).  

How does the Wristband charge?
Feel will be able to charge via a USB cable included in the packaging.  

How do I clean my Feel Wristband?
Regularly clean your Feel and wrist—especially after working out or sweating by wiping it with a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Do NOT use hand soap, body soap, dish soap, hand sanitizers, cleaning wipes or household cleaners which could get trapped beneath the band and irritate skin. Always dry the band well before putting it back on. Be sure your skin is dry before you put your band back on. If you notice any allergic reaction or skin irritation, stop wearing the device and contact our support team at info@myfeel.co.  

What is the difference between Feel and fitness trackers?
Unlike a fitness tracker that monitors activity levels throughout the day, Feel uniquely monitors and recognizes 5 emotional patterns and provides personalized recommendations and coaching to help improve emotional well-being.  

Does Feel measure my heart rate and steps?
Feel measures both heart rate and steps. However, Feel is focused on monitoring physiological signals of the body in order to recognize emotional patterns, step count is not included in the results Feel shares with the user.  

Is Feel suitable for children?
Children can use Feel. However, minors should only use the product under adult supervision. If you decide to use Feel for your child, keep in mind that the size of their wrist needs to correspond to the wristband sizing guidelines in order for it to function properly.

Can Feel be used at the same time as medication?
Feel can be used at the same time as medication but it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. However, through constant monitoring Feel is designed to help the user identify their emotional patterns and provide real-time coaching, intervention, and personalized advice to help them achieve emotional well-being goals.  

How will it be packed? Will your product be packed as a gift?
Feel will come in an elegantly branded box which easily translates to gifting purposes.

The SCIENCE behind Feel:

What studies is Feel technology based on?
Academic research in major Universities such as MIT has proven that by using specific techniques on a series of bio-signals, we can accurately predict emotional states. In a variety of publications, the highest accuracy comes from features extracted from Skin Conductance (SC), Electromyography (EMG), Blood Volume Pulse (BVP), Skin Temperature (ST) and Respiration bio-signals.

In our approach, we are using SC, BVP, ST bio-signals and IMU (Gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer) measurements to enhance the classification process. Our methodology is based on similar techniques used in academic literature and enhanced with new algorithms and techniques developed by our team.

Feel consists of 3 parts: Proprietary algorithms, the Wristband and the Mobile Application. The Wristband has multiple integrated bio-sensors (GSR, BVP, ST etc.) that monitor a variety of physiological signals throughout the day, while in the background, Proprietary Algorithms are able to recognize the wearer’s emotions. The mobile application receives data from the wristband and tracks the wearer’s emotions, providing personalized recommendations and real-time coaching based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

What tests have been conducted?
We have conducted several pilot studies at the Department of Psychology at University of California/Riverside. We are in the process of conducting more validation tests with specialized hospitals and facilities, as well as major universities in the US.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy draws upon the rich traditions of behavior modification and rational-emotive or cognitive therapy (Meichenbaum‚ 1976) ‚ paying attention to social cognition (Dodge ‚ 1993) as well as individual constructions of reality (Mahone y‚ 1993). It may combine a variety of techniques such as relaxation‚ cognitive restructuring‚ problem-solving‚ and stress inoculation‚ but rather than being a mere form of technical eclecticism‚ it is theoretically unified by principles of learning theory and information processing (by Richard Beck and Ephrem Fernandez, 1998).

Can Feel be used for treatment purposes?
Feel is not a medical device and in no way, should be used to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease and should only be used as a supplementary means to better manage one’s mental health and emotional well-being.

How does Feel track emotions?
The product consists of 3 parts:  the Wristband, the Proprietary Algorithms, and the Mobile Application. The Wristband has multiple integrated bio-sensors that monitor a variety of physiological signals throughout the day, while in the background, Proprietary Algorithms are able to translate this data into 5 emotional patterns.

The mobile application receives the data from the wristband and tracks the emotions of the user, providing personalized recommendations and real-time coaching based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

What sensors is Feel equipped with and how do they work?

Feel is equipped with Blood Volume Pressure Sensor, Skin Temperature Sensor, Inertial Measurement Unit (Gyroscope, Accelerometer and Magnetometer), Galvanic Skin Response Sensor and Humidity-Environment Temperature Sensor. The sensors monitor a variety of physiological signals throughout the day, while in the background, Proprietary Algorithms are able to recognize the wearer’s emotions.

FEEL Mobile Application:

How do I connect my Feel to the Mobile Application?
The Wristband will be able to connect to the Mobile Application via a Bluetooth connection.

Can I download the Application for free?
Yes, the Application will be available for free on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Does Feel need to be connected to my phone at all times?
Feel will monitor and collect data on bodily signals independently with limited memory. Once the user reconnects to the Application, the data will be stored.

In order for Feel’s usage to be beneficiary to the maximum, we recommend that it is connected to the Application in order to provide real-time coaching, intervention, and personalized advice to help user achieve the emotional well-being goals.

What Android/iOS devices is Feel compatible with? 
Feel will be compatible with all Android/iOS devices.

Does my phone need to be nearby my Wristband? 
Feel transfers the data collected from the Wristband to the Application via Bluetooth. The phone needs to be close to the Wristband in order to transfer the collected data. However, if the connection fails, the data will be transferred easily once the connection returns.

How many MB will the Application consume?

Depending on the particular usage patterns, data consumption may be high enough to encounter extra costs (music/video streaming).

Does it have to connect to Wi-Fi?
In case your phone is not connected to a Wi-Fi network additional costs on mobile data may occur.  

Can I use the Application combined with my psychotherapy treatment?
Feel methodology is based on Evidence Based Practices in Psychology (EBPP), which are currently being argued on their high efficacy and widely used by therapists globally. That makes Feel suitable to be used as a helpful addition to any type of psychological therapy. We suggest discussing with your therapist before using your Feel in combination with your psychotherapy treatment.  

What will be the real-time intervention techniques that you mention?
User receives personalized recommendations and real-time coaching based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy through the Application. For example, if the user feels overwhelmed or angry, Feel will recognize it and suggest a relaxation technique (e.g. breathing exercise). The more user wears Feel, the better the device understands and get accustomed with the user. Feel will learn and remember what makes the user feel better and offer it once noticing the user is, for instance, sad.
