Meet Reveal

Reveal is a tool that will measure and track the body's response to anxiety in real-time in order to help better understand behaviour and even to predict behaviour meltdowns.

We're designing it specifically for the 1 in 68 individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, to help with focus and learning in the classroom and to improve early intervention for long-term independence.

Why Reveal?

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 sensory and environmental triggers that can lead to overstimulation and rises in anxiety.

Sometimes, these result in a behaviour meltdown. Meltdowns are emotionally draining and can be physically dangerous both for the individuals with autism and their parents or caregivers.

This is why we are building Reveal.

Reveal will eliminate the uncertainty and provide a quantified measure of anxiety that notes physiological and contextual cues. Reveal is a wearable band that measures and tracks physiological signals in real time, empowering people with autism, their parents, and their caregivers to understand changes in behaviour and emotion.

Reveal will 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.

The Design

We're putting a lot of work into how Reveal will look and feel, constantly making progress and improving. We have spoken to hundreds of parents, caregivers, and care experts to help us understand how to design a band that is comfortable, durable, and secure.

We are currently testing Reveal with families and continuously iterating and adapting it to ensure it meets your needs.The sensors inside Reveal are being designed by the leading experts in the field of physiological measurement and the signals collected from these sensors will be processed using our proprietary machine-learning algorithm, which will get smarter and more personalized over time.

About Us

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.
