The key property of HeartKey® is that the algorithms work in real time – the data is processed immediately and information extracted continuously, meaning our customers can be very flexible in where they can deploy this technology.
Braj Srigengan, Head of Product
Enhancing VR with EKG Biometrics To show the power VR can have in controlling our stress levels, we put our Head of Product, Braj Srigengan, to the test and made him face his biggest fear…heights.
We used HeartKey® to monitor his vitals, as seen in the video above. Braj is calm and relaxed at the start of the video, but as soon as the elevator doors open to reveal the plank at the top of the building, we see Braj’s heart rate and stress rapidly increase. Although he knows it is not real, the VR can’t help but make him feel stressed as it appears so realistic.
In the same way as VR can be used to place a user in a stressful environment to help them gradually overcome fear, alternatively VR can be used to relax and calm a user who is experiencing chronic stress. Combining the deep health data insights of EKG monitoring with the immersive techniques being developed could create a powerful therapeutic approach to mitigating chronic stress in the workplace.
