While autism is unique to every individual on the spectrum, many people with autism have difficulty with communication, social interaction, as well as relating to their own emotions.
Many people on the spectrum have specific triggers that lead to rises in anxiety. Sometimes these rises in anxiety can only be expressed through a behaviour meltdown. These meltdowns are emotionally draining and can be physically dangerous both for the individuals with autism and their parents or caregivers.
Right now, parents and caregivers are guessing what triggers behaviour meltdowns – many techniques that help reduce anxiety levels to prevent meltdowns exist but it is often difficult to know when to use them. This is why we made Reveal.
Reveal eliminates this uncertainty and, for the first time, provides a quantified measure of behaviour and emotion. Reveal is a wearable band that measures and tracks physiological signals in real time, empowering people living with autism to understand changes in their behaviour and emotions.
Reveal can help you understand when a rise in anxiety may lead to a behaviour meltdown, notifying you through a smartphone app to help you intervene at the right time.
