U-Check-It™, World’s First Wearable Device for Checking Stress Levels, to Launch on Indiegogo

November 06 12:59 2017

Lansdowne, PA – November 6th, 2017 – Bedell Innovations, LLC has announced that it is launching a stress level monitoring system, U-Check-It™ for crowdfunding on its Indiegogo campaign page. U-Check-It™ is an easy to use gadget allowing anyone to check their stress levels at any time by measuring cortisol, the stress hormone.

The American Psychological Association reveals that 75 percent adults experienced high stress levels in the previous month. In Great Britain, 28.3 billion Euros were spent in 2007 due to illnesses prompted by excessive stress, and the global figure stands at 300 billion. As per WHO, depression afflicts over 250 million people in the world, but less than 25 percent receive effective treatment.

U-Check-It™ has been designed to form part of pro-active healthcare, which can save money and lives. Irregular cortisol levels have been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and adrenal fatigue. The ability to easily measure cortisol levels is thus important, and U-Check-It™ is the world’s first wearable gadget to monitor cortisol levels. The gadget is ideal for stress management, extreme sports and games, building emotional intelligence (EQ), and for market research involving measuring cortisol during participation in entertainment events to reveal satisfaction levels.

A private point-of-care health monitoring device, U-Check-It™ can measure salivary cortisol levels with only three steps: place the biological assay cartridge into mouth for 50 seconds, place the cartridge into a biological hormone reader, and obtain results with cortisol interpretation and stress number. The gadget offers features such as EDA sensor for mood monitoring, GPS tracker, sport and activity meter, sleep monitor and body temperature monitor. U-Check-It™ carries a SIM card and is compatible with Android phones and iPhone.

“The team participated in the Jefferson Health Hack 2016, where we demonstrated the key functions of the proposed device. We were also selected as finalist for the Temple University 2016 Innovative Idea Competition,” says Alfred Bedell.

U-Check-It™ is a flexible, wearable gadget that can be used to take four measurements in a day to establish a cortisol rhythm, generate a snapshot of stress profile and overall health, and share the results with family, friends or health professionals.

The U-Check-It™ system consists of a wearable hardware, consumable bio-cartridges, and mobile application software. The crowdfunding campaign for U-Check-It™ will go live in November 2017. Backers will have the opportunity to get early access to the U-Check-It™ system with up to 40% discount (MSRP $299.99) on Indiegogo.com.
