Spire Mindfulness and Activity Tracker
Spire is a platform for psychotherapeutic modalities. It is a clothing- worn device that passively senses and interprets one’s respiration patterns to provide real-time feedback and guidance to improve cognitive-emotional state and emotion regulation. It notifies the user of significant changes in their respiration patterns and provides optional guidance to change breathing patterns to down-regulate the nervous system and interrupt mind-wandering. The design of the Spire user experience is based on evidence from three areas of research (human physiology, clinical psychology, and clinical interventions) that all investigate the utility of respiration as a tool for feedback and regulation of cognitive/emotional state.
