The 'Touchpoints' stress reliever could be the solution to the ongoing stress issue plaguing the world. Touchpoints is the flagship product by the company of the same name, and was developed by neuropsychologist Dr. Amy Serin. Her research in PTSD eventually led her to discover the benefit of wearing two pulsating gadgets as a solution for stress reduction. Touchpoints is not just a stress reliever as the pulsating device may also help with night terrors and other sleep-related issues.
The device's hardware is a relatively small square with a single button to switch the device on and off. The device automatically pairs with mobile devices using Bluetooth, and a companion app will provide a short questionnaire to determine users' stress levels before recommending a preset that can also be changed to suit their needs.
This stress reliever must be used two at a time and can be placed on the wrist or in the pocket. The device works by pulsing back and forth to create a soothing effect. Touchpoints was exhibited at CES 2018 and was met with good response as reviewers found it did actually calm them down. The device is available in two different versions, the pro and the basic.
