PanicMechanic shows you how your body is responding to your panic attack. It is backed by science and gives you a sense of control when you need it most. Download PanicMechanic today to overcome your panic attacks whenever and wherever they happen.

We created PanicMechanic because we suffered from panic attacks. The biofeedback-based approach we deliver is what worked for us, and PanicMechanic is our way of sharing it with you. Our hope is that it will help you get through your panic attacks, understand what is happening to your body, and identify your common triggers.

How it works

When you feel a panic attack coming on, open the app and it will prompt you to place your finger on your phone’s video camera. Several times throughout the attack, your body’s panic response will be recorded. You will also record stress levels, exercise patterns, and lifestyle habits that might help predict future panic attacks. The app lets you watch your body’s panic response decrease as your panic attack ends. After you’ve logged at least one attack, the app can start giving you information such as, “Based on your average attack, you only have 2 more minutes until the end! You got this!” You can see your panic attack history and learn for yourself what circumstances make you most likely to have an attack. Best of all, users say that the app gives them a sense of control during the attack.

Why it works

Research on panic and anxiety suggests that by tracking your body’s fear response, you will be able to anticipate your pattern of responding which will help you gain control of your anxiety. By using PanicMechanic during several panic attacks, you will learn how your body will likely respond to certain situations and triggers.

Plus 1 for science ,

So simple, so effective

This rather nifty app has helped me manage severe attacks where I feel incapable of moving and having trouble breathing (heaving). Not only does seeing your progress improve during your panic attack give you some confidence that you’re rounding the corner, but I found going through the questionnaire helpful in redirecting my attention away from the attack.

Actually does not work ,

It really works!

It’s kind of amazing that something that’s so easy to use has such a big impact on my anxiety attacks but it really does work. Win one for science!
