BioFidget is a playful device for monitoring and treating stress.

The design is inpsired by the fidget spinner, an inexpensive and widely available children's toy. BioFidget transforms the toy into a 'smart spinner' that allows the user to monitor breathing and other body functions. The user activates BioFidget with a simple flick of the finger. The device then takes a heartrate reading, which it displays to user. By positing the spinner in her mouth, the user can use it to monitor her breathing. The device provides visual feedback to encourage a more regular and relaxed breathing and heart rate.
