Anxiety/Panic disorder affects millions of people each year.
A person may experience sudden feelings of fear. Symptoms
may also include: racing heart, trembling, chest pains,
feeling of dying, disorientation, fear of social settings,
unreasonable fear of an object or circumstance, and feelings
of being trapped. The disorder can be a biological defect in
the autonomic nervous system, triggered by chemical imbalances, or stressors. Whether the origins
are situational or biological, their effects can be so crippling that everyday life can be a continuous battle. Medication and therapy are options for individuals who suffer from these and related disorders.
By utilizing deep breathing techniques the user can begin
de-escalating emotional responses. This bracelet
houses a breathing device that allows air to flow in only
one direction. If experiencing an anxiety attack, an individual would breath in through their
nose and then, placing their mouth around the mouthpiece
housed at the top of the bracelet, would exhale
through their mouth. For an individual with this
disorder, an unconscious task such as breathing emphasizes how
symptoms of anxiety can change every aspect of an
individuals life. By becoming aware of what is in their control, the individual can begin to manage their disorder. Anxiety Bracelet CAD/CAM, Tangible, SLS, tangible in
