holly™ (previously known as the Anxiety Meter)

Detecting anxiety to empower self-awareness and management for better outcomes.

Introducing holly™

holly™ provides a means to detect levels of emotional arousal, such as states of anxiety. Often anxiety can reach a state whereby the time the individual is displaying symptoms of anxiety, it may be too late for behavioural therapies to be optimally effective. Through patented algorithms, holly™ measures an individual's heart rate and notifies the child and/or caregivers of his or her anxiety level to empower users with greater awareness of anxiety and to improve health outcomes.

holly™ was developed by scientists Drs. Azadeh Kushki (seen here on the right) and Evdokia Anagnostou.
