In this world of constant engagement and stresses, it can get difficult to take some time out and relax. While there are many ways to unwind and get a step ahead of burnout, we don’t really know how well they work. Now, the Eindhoven-based startup AlphaBeats has come up with a new technology that can quantify if you really are relaxed and if not, it can help you wind down. The new technology aims at enabling stress management and is based on neurofeedback.
Measuring real-time brain activity
Anyone hardly thinks about any scientific parameters while taking a break, whereas AlphaBeats measures real-time brain activity. When we relax, our brain emits alpha waves and the startup has come up with a new biofeedback technology that measures real-time brain activity and the company’s algorithm modifies a person’s music to help them relax. This is apparently done in just 10 minutes.
