Why Measure Cortisol

ztjigpdbhd8vmvm1pa9t

 

The American Psychological Association stated that over 75 percent of adults experienced high stress levels in the previous month (American Psychological Association, 2017). In Great Britain, 28.3 billion Euros were spent in 2007 due to illnesses prompted by excessive stress, and the global figure stands at over 300 billion USD (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence). Chronic stress causes severe depression. The World Health Organization stated that depression afflicts over 250 million people in the world, but less than 25 percent receive effective treatment.

 

What is Cortisol ?

 

 

Cortisol, the end result of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis, is considered a potential key in understanding the connection between living a healthy life and managing stress. The HPA response during “fight or flight” allows humans  to maintain a balance during the onset of internal and external stress.  However, the continuous activation of the HPA system due to “chronic stress” and “poor stress management” leads to the development of allostatic load, or excessive wear on the body. Over activation of the HPA also causes irregular cortisol levels, which has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and adrenal fatigue.

 

 

 

 

Introducing U-Check-It™

The U-Check-It™ is the world’s first wearable gadget to monitor cortisol levels. The gadget offers features such as Electrodermal activity (EDA) sensor for mood monitoring, GPS tracker, sport and activity meter, sleep monitor and body temperature monitor. The U-Check-It™ carries a SIM card and is compatible with Android phones and iPhone.

 

 

 

The U-Check-It™ is ideal for stress management, extreme sports and Fitness, building emotional intelligence or EQ, and entertainment

Stress Management– The user can use the U-Check-It™ platform for stress management.  The platform will continually take measurements on the user’s vitals and calibrate it for a stress number. The user can add notes at each interval to document experience, and build a cohesive stress journal.  The application can assist in developing intervention for stressful events. 

 

 

 

 

Extreme Sports/Games/Fitness– The user can use the U-Check-It ™ platform to measure their emotional state and vitals during their activities. By knowing cortisol levels, an individual may have a greater awareness of  adrenal exhaustion, which may cause excessive inflammation, and increase susceptibility to injury or illness. By using U-Check-It ™, active people may be able to improve performance and recovery time like professional athletes.

Build Emotional Intelligence (EQ) – The user can use the U-Check-It ™ platform to build valuable skills to improve their emotional intelligence. Due to neuroplasticity, or the ability for the brain to change, users may improve their reaction to stressful events through interactive gaming app and feedback. Did you know that over 90% of high achievers have a high EQ? In addition, having a higher EQ may reduce occupational stress, and improve decision making skills. On average, people with a higher EQ make more money annually than there lower EQ counterparts.

Entertainment/Market Research– The user can use the U-Check-It ™ platform for entertainment purposes.  The platform will be able to measure a user’s vitals and physiological state during entertainment events (e.g. video games, movies, shopping, etc).  This data could be used to gauge overall satisfaction of consumer products and services.

The U-Check-It™ works by measuring salivary cortisol levels with only three steps:

  • Place the biological  cartridge into mouth for 50 seconds
  • Put cartridge into biological hormone reader
  • Get results with cortisol interpretation and stress number

The system generates a snapshot of the user’s stress profile. Results can be shared with family and friends.

The development of the U-Check-It™ system began in April 2015. The company’s founder, Alfred Bedell, noticed that a high percentage of clubhouse members were being hospitalized for stress induced health issues. The clubhouse members had compounded diagnoses such as mental illness, and depression. Ten (10) members voluntarily responded to questions about stress. The assessment revealed that all respondents suffered reduced quality of life due to chronic stress, and 90% of them said that they would use a stress management product if it could provide information about their current stress levels. After receiving  feedback, a proof of concept was made.

 

                                                           PROOF OF CONCEPT BOARDS (POC)

To realize the goal of developing a stress monitoring device, Bedell Innovations has been engaging several organizations and companies.

The team participated in the 2016 Jefferson Health Hack, hosted by Jefferson University in Philadelphia, where they were able to demonstrate the key functions of the proposed device. The team was also selected as finalist for the Temple University 2016 Innovative Idea Competition.

The company was selected as semi-finalist in the NextFab Rapid Cohort for spring 2017. They received 3 months of support from trained engineers and technicians on the development of a full-scale production model. 

The company was also accepted into the Arrow Incubation & certification program for product development.

In August 2017, Bedell Innovations signed an NDA with an american based manufacturing company, and is collaborating with them to finalize the manufacturing strategy of the product.

 As of December 2017, the company has conducted over 400 customer assessments regarding the development of U-Check-It™.

 

During the Fall semester of 2017, Bedell Innovations has been working with  interns from the University of Penn to validate and test the feasibility of the U-Check-It™ system.

 

To date, the company has successfully designed four (4) different working
prototype iterations.

The company is passionate about giving people the opportunity to check their stress level anywhere and anytime.  Bedell Innovations believes in proactive healthcare which has the potential to save money, save families, and save lives. 

“Our team believes that having the ability to monitor the stress hormone remotely and at point-of-care can provide tremendous benefits for individuals looking to improve health & wellness.”  -Alfred Bedell  (CEO)
