sensedat has developed a method for measuring and monitoring stress level by combining different physiological signals, which are collected with dedicated wearable devices.
What is stress?
While we commonly think of stress as too much mental or emotional pressure, physiological or physical stress is also important. Stress can affect how you feel, think and behave as well as how your body works, because your mind and body are one...
Adrenaline increases your heart rate, raises your blood pressure and provides extra energy. Cortisol, known as the stress hormone, also temporarily increases energy by triggering the release of glucose into the bloodstream, to help the person fight or run away.
Everyone needs a certain amount of stress or pressure to live well. It's what gets you out of bed in the morning and motivates you throughout the day.
However, stress becomes problematic when there's too much or too little. Whilst a lack of stress means your body is under-stimulated, stress that is too intense or prolonged, causes your body to release stress hormones over a long period.
This increases the risk of a range of physical health problems including headaches, stomach upsets and even increases the risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
