'Pinch' is a concept medical bracelet for chronic pain management by Loris Bottello that helps patients measure pain levels throughout the day. In addition to being able to manually input information, Pinch is designed to collect other data like the wearer's pulse, consumption of medication, physical activity and sleep levels.

Pinch is conveniently worn as a watch and to register an instance of pain, it has a simple touch interface on its face, which uses a series of colored dots to measure varying levels of discomfort. When Pinch is set upon its docking station, the recorded data is automatically sent to a storage system and from there, this information could be sent to caretakers or medical professionals for insight and analysis.
