IPP Fall 2014 | Projects | Anxiety Brace | Final

  • Jake, Sofia, and I all have severe anxiety, which makes it extremely difficult for us--and millions of other people--to function normally. Although we all fidget constantly in a subconscious attempt to distract ourselves from anxiety, fidgeting is not actually effective in helping anxiety. So, we designed a stylish wrist brace with discreet "fidgetors" placed over pressure points that relieve anxiety when stimulated. When the user is feeling stressed, all they have to do is fidget with the fidgetors, and the anxiety is alleviated. Our final product translates those instinctual, repetitive, hand motions into something both productive and a true distraction from anxiety.
