Welcome to mySYNS

WHAT IS MYSYNS?

mySYNS is a machine learning algorithm that can predict your risk of chronic stress and burnout. It does that by analyzing your vital data and other input from you. If you are on a trajectory to cross your stress threshold, mysyns will communicate to you via messaging, using cognitive behavioral therapy principles, to give you actionable information and not just raw data.

 

 

 

 

 

First, mySYNS monitors your vital data from wearables, your smartphone, and information you chose to share. This information is then analyzed, and when problems arise, mySYNS will guide you to balance your nervous system.

mySYNS will not interfere every single time there is a small change because these short-term changes are healthy physical functions. It only communicates with you when prolonged stress is projected to occur. People can choose to initiate a conversation as well.

 

 

PASSIVE MONITORING, ACTIVE PREVENTION

mySYNS continuously monitors your vitals from your wearables or smartphone in the background. The data is analyzed similarly as when your doctor is checking your vitals, but continuously. When mysyns detects prolonged stress (or even chronic stress signals), you will be guided with recommendations to reduce your stress and prevent your stress to develop into a more serious health problem.

TWO TYPES OF STRESS

There are two types of stress. Acute stress is the stress that we feel and clearly notice, for example when we have an exam the next day. This acute stress is the activation and execution of our fight and flight mode and is a function of our bodies to free up energy when we need it. Acute stress is not dangerous to us.

Then there is the chronic stress. People are usually not aware of chronic stress until secondary symptoms appear that are much harder to cure. Today's wearable technology allows us to continuously monitor our vital signs, in which we can identify initial signs of a burnout or other illness up to three months before they occur. Chronic stress happens when our nervous system fails to return to its natural balance.

PROLONGED STRESS

As mentioned above, we focus on chronic stress because acute stress in itself is a required function of our bodies. In today's fast-paced society our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are constantly under pressure, and it is challenging for our bodies to returned from an "excited" stage into a relaxed stage and find the equilibrium. Chronic stress can have many serious health consequences. Chronic stress has such an impact on our society that it is coined by the World Health Organization as: "the health epidemic of the 21st century."

 

POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF PROLONGED STRESS EXPOSURE

Prolonged stress exposure (chronic stress) can lead to severe health problems if undetected and untreated. WebMD states that "Forty-three percent of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress." A study from the University of Oxford discovered that 70 to 90% of all hospital visits are directly linked to stress, and can cause the following health problems:

  • depression
  • burnout
  • insomnia
  • headache/migraine
  • backache
  • chronic pain
  • immune system weakness
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • diabetes
  • heart attacks
  • cancer

About the Startup

We are a Swiss health tech startup
mysyns essence is to develop your resilience

We made it our mission to provide you with a tool that helps you to develop your resilience. The stressors and expectations of modern society keep increasing. Stress is now coined "The health epidemic of the 21st century." (WHO). 70 to 90% of hospital visits are directly linked to stress (The Oxford University). Stress costs U.S. corporations $300 billion per year; that’s $100 billion more than obesity. “Extreme” stress events reduce gray matter in brain regions tied to emotion and physiological functions which can lead to future psychiatric problems. We can't change your life, what we can do is to help you to adapt to this high-pace and turbulent lifestyle, by providing you a professional and engaging tool that develops your resilience.
