Did You Know e-Tattoo Can Detect When You’re Stressed Out?


Palm E-Tattoo Can Detect Your Stress

Mental Health News

A team of researchers at the University of Texas explored how a palm e-tattoo can detect mental distress. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.

The Study

The researchers experimented with a wide variety of palm-monitoring technology, particularly electronic tattoos that detect when you’re stressed out during any activity.

The Findings

The researchers settled on an e tattoo on your palm that is graphene-based, nearly invisible, and connects to a smartwatch. This e-tattoo measures electrical potential from the human body, leading to very accurate readings of stress, anxiety, etc.

The authors added: “[The device] is so unobstructive that people sometimes forget they had them on, and it also reduces the social stigma of wearing these devices in such prominent places on the body.
