Aroama is a wearable emotional tracker that monitors users' stress and keeps track of past anxiety attacks. At a certain stress threshold, the Aroama Band releases a discrete scent that incentivizes deep breathing (proven to relieve stress in users).
The data is visualized in the mobile application, where users can see when, where, and how frequent they are feeling anxious. This information can be shared with a therapist, providing more reliable data than asking patients to journal or record their emotions manually.
Collecting data from thousands of Aroama users can provide cities and institutions with an emotional picture of their community. This allows them to administer more effective treatment to improve mental wellness.
This was a team project in partnership with engineering and business students from Babson College and Olin College.
