As a start-up, we focused on the students dealing with Hyperventilation Caused by the Panic attack in Rotterdam. Hyperventilation can be a serious issue. In Hyperventilation, you exhale more than you inhale. This causes a rapid reduction in carbon dioxide in the body.
We designed a product called O2 which can control and adjust your breathing. This product is like a suspender belt which is equipped by the small vibration motors which give you upward and downward motions and the user needs to follow the vibration movements to balance the breathing. This rhythm makes you breathe slowly and relax.
Our plan is to develop this product in the future. With adding it to other existing breathing data collectors products like SPIRE we will help people to not just get notifications in an emergency situation but can control it.
My role for this collective project was; Researching, Concept developing, design and making the product. (December 2018)
