The Touchpoint system uses two wearable health devices that alternate vibrations and help the wearer break out of fight or flight mode. It can reduce the physical and mental symptoms of stress and anxiety within 30 seconds.
Stress and anxiety are increasingly common issues that can have a huge impact on someone’s quality of life. They can result in several physical symptoms, including shortness of breath, sensations of a pounding heart, chest discomfort, and restlessness. 77% of people experience a level of stress that negatively affects their physical health.
There are a few non-medical options for getting fast or immediate relief from symptoms caused by stress or anxiety. Meditation apps and therapy can help over time, but sufferers sometimes require quick solutions on days or situations with heightened symptoms.
Touchpoint has developed a simple, safe option that provides relief of physical symptoms within 30 seconds by 68%. Touchpoint uses two wearable health devices that can be worn on the wrists, shirts, socks, or pockets. It uses their patent-pending Bi-lateral Alternating Stimulation Tactile (BLAST) technology, to shift users out of the fight or flight mode and move towards the nervous system’s calmer aspect, known as the parasympathetic system.
The BLAST technology uses gentle vibrations in 15-minute sessions any time the wearer needs help. The Touchpoint Wearable has three settings: blue for sleep/meditation, yellow for calm/focus and purple for anger/agitation. Their stress study shows that within 30 seconds, wearers experience relief of both the physical and mental symptoms of stress and anxiety, and an improvement in focus. Regular use can create a long-lasting reduction in stress, improving sleep quality, physical and psychological health, and concentration.
