The WellBe is a digital bracelet and a mobile app that work in concert to support the user’s emotional well being.

The WellBe bracelet includes an accelerometer, sensors for heart rate monitoring and a bluetooth antenna. The accelerometer identifies the user’s movement status (such as running, walking, rest, etc.) and the heart rate monitor collects user’s heartbeat data and this information is then transmitted to the mobile app through Bluetooth communication.

The mobile app collects the data transmitted by the bracelet and it then uses a patent pending algorithm to detect and determine the user’s emotional stress level. The app asks the user’s permission to access their location and calendar and it can then display the user’s stress level in relation to time, location, events and people they meet.

The user can also set the WellBe app to notify him or her when the stress level is too high, and upon the occurrence of such event the app sends a push notification to the user’s phone. Such notification will also offer a variety of meditations and balancing exercises to release stress immediately.

The app includes a large catalog of meditations and mindfulness exercises, all designed to help the user release stress. When the user meditates with the app, the bracelet is monitoring the user’s heart rate and the app then shows the user the before and after measurements of his or her stress level for each meditation. The app’s algorithm then learns which meditations have the best effect on the user and it recommends to the user similar meditations accordingly.

The WellBe bracelet and the WellBe app work in concert to convert negative emotions into positive ones and helps maintain emotional well-being on a day to day basis.

The Negative Effects of Stress

According to The American Institute of Stress, the negative effects of stress on the body are manifold. Emotional and physical disorders include depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke, hypertension, immune system disturbances that increase susceptibility to infections, a host of viral linked disorders ranging from the common cold and herpes to AIDS and certain cancers, as well as autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

The Proven Effectiveness of Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation have been scientifically proven as highly effective ways to release stress and have many other positive effects such as better sleep, improved productivity and lasting good feelings. A recent study from Harvard University suggests that meditation influences the grey matter in the brain, allowing for more youthful aging of the brain and body.

The WellBe app is making the most of this ancient wisdom by providing users with easy tools to access this wisdom in a way that health is optimized at the right time and place.

The WellBe app offers a large variety of mindfulness exercises such as breathing, guided imagination and meditations – all designed to bring you one into relaxation within minutes. Moreover, the WellBe also offers variety of meditation plans for 7, 14 and 21 days to help the user adopt a more serene routine. The WellBe also integrates classes and guided meditations from world class mentors that enhances users’ wellbeing on an ongoing basis.
