We have no doubts that technology will increasingly become part of everyday life… But what about the so-called digital health?
Many people are still skeptical about it, especially because they ignore the benefits of combining technology and health. Technology can support us and improve our health in various ways, even outside the hospital. Today we explore digital health thanks to three smart proposals to take care of your health every day, without great effort.
FOCI, a device to boost your concentration
FOCI is a wearable device that aims to reduce distractions and increase concentration. The creation of the British company Tinylogics combines cognitive biometrics with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to help you improve concentration. Perfect for people who tend to get distracted easily.
Foci’s technology is based on research showing that breathing is closely related to our cognitive and subconscious states. Taking inspiration from Pixar’s Inside out, FOCI captures moods and transforms them into colored spheres. They will help you visualize and understand the state you are in, telling you what to do to optimize concentration.
Yellow: concentration. If you see this color, it means that you are in an extremely productive state and that you should try to keep it as long as possible.
Blue: relaxation. This is the ideal state for meditating or resting. But if you are working, it is the case to increase the concentration you could carry out a more challenging task.
Purple: fatigue. You have worked too hard and your attention is waning. To restore attention, you can pause work, take a walk in nature or follow the relaxation guide of the FOCI AI coach…
Red: stress. The most dangerous state, the one to manage and stem immediately. How? Identify the source of anxiety, talk to close friends, practice relaxation techniques… FOCI AI Coach can provide you with guidance to relax and live more productively.
