PanicMechanic is interactive and uses the concept of biofeedback to coach you through your panic attacks. It was created by experts to help you understand your panic attacks and 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.
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.

Great friend to have in your pocket to get you through panic attack!
This is a wonderful app. Whoever developed this app must be very smart and attractive. Good job!
Waste of money!
This app only records your heart rate. That’s it! I have a free app for that already. I wish I can get my money back.
Developer Response ,
Hi Deb! I’m sorry that you didn’t have a good first experience. We would love to talk you through how this app works!
Yes, it tracks heart rate, anxiety levels, triggers, and daily factors (sleep, exercise), and shows you how much time is likely left in your attack. It does seem simple and research shows that learning about your panic response and facing it with guidance allows you to feel in control of your body again and reduces the panic.
We have a tutorial coming soon! Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
