Authors: Vincent Chai Min Shen and Aslina Baharum
Individuals nowadays suffered from stress due to high workload from works or studies. However, most of them could not identify their stress level or some of them did not even know that they were exposed to consideration amount of stress. A study was carried out in order to study the mobile application and wearable technology towards the development of stress monitoring application, namely as ‘Stress Catcher’. Through the study, stress monitoring application was developed based on users’ heart beat rate and users’ perception was evaluated to see how people reacted towards the application. In order to develop the stress monitoring application, Mobile-D methodology was applied. After the study, the stress monitoring application was expected to measure users’ heart beat rate and compared to the heart rate from the signal of pulse that sent to the wearable device, which was Mio Alpha. Mobile application will display the stress level through the display screen.
