What is mysyns?
mysyns is a stress management platform that can be accessed via smartphone, your vitals are analyzed and upon detection of prolonged stress you will be guided by mysyns to reduce your stress and understand your stressor. More importantly mysyns helps you to develop your resilience over time. Situations that de-rail your nervous system today, might not affect you as much or at all in the future.
Passive monitoring, active prevention
mysyns continuously monitors your vitals from your wearables or smartphone in the background. mysyns remembers what you chatted about. The data is is analyzed similarly as when your doctor is checking your vitals. 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.
We are working closely together with medical doctors and therapists in order for mysyns to be an accurate and viable solution that helps you manage your stress effectively.
Two stress types
There are two types of stress, perceived stress is the stress that we feel and clearly notice, this is the stress when we have a deadline and we are not sure if we are going to meet it. Then there is physiological stress, which people do not notice, it best can be detected by the new possibility of continuous vital sign monitoring through smart wearables. First stress signs can be identified by monitored changes in vital signs months before a the first stress related health problems happen such as a burnout or a depression. Comparison table
We focus on prolonged stress, because stress in itself is a required function of our bodies, it activates the fight and flight mechanism. In today's fast paced society our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are constantly under pressure and it is difficult for our bodies to returned from a stressed stage into a relaxed stage again. Prolonged stress can have many serious health consequences and it is coined by the World Health Organization as: "the epidemic of the 21st century."
Possible consequences of prolonged stress
Prolonged stress exposure can lead to very serious 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:
- Headache / migraine
- Chronic pain
- Immune system weakness
- Heart attacks
mysyns works with multiple different smart health wearables, you don't need to buy another wearable if you already have one that is compatible.
mysyns is still in research and development, these initial mockups give you an idea of what we are working on.
