Just place a finger over the camera for two minutes, and StressScan will analyze changes in your heart rate and scientifically measure the level of your mental and physical stress on a scale of 1 to 100.
Stress is the root cause of many illnesses. Measure your stress to manage it!

- What is the principle behind StressScan? −
Many of the functions essential to maintaining human health are controlled by the autonomic nervous system. It is medically recognized that the balance of the autonomic nervous system can become disordered through fatigue and other stress, stemming from causes such as work and human relationships. By analyzing the waveform of your heartbeat as measured at the fingertip, StressScan can analyze the balance of your autonomic nervous system and measure your stress level on a stress index of 1 to 100.

- You can trust StressScan! -
The technology used by StressScan is based on heart rate variability analysis, which is widely recognized in the field of heart rate analysis and autonomic nervous system research.
Although heart rate variability analysis technology is not yet generally well known, many medical institutions and companies have taken an interest and are beginning to put it to use. The technology is seeing use even at the cutting edge of stress care, including adoption by the US military to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in soldiers returning from the battlefield, and by NASA for astronaut training and health management.

- Usable in a range of scenarios! -
· Periodic checking of daily stress level
· Checking the effects of favorite meals and drinks on stress
· Checking relaxation while traveling or at a favorite spot

- Device compatibility -
The app is intended for use with a camera- and flash-equipped smartphone. It is not usable with devices that do not have a camera and flash.

- Usage environment -
An Internet connection is required to use the app. External support for measurement functions is used for complex stress analysis.

First day

I just got this app today but so far I like it. I am a huge stresser. I try not to do it but it's just what I do. I tried this app for the first time today and also monitored my heart beat and pressure with my fitbit and they were consistently the same. We will see how it goes as I continue to use it. So far I would highly recommend this app to anyone.


No so good

How is this app supposed to be useful for those trying to manage stress if the notifications received are apart of my STRESS!? - Firstly, this app reads high heart rate as stressful which is complete garbage. If I just came in from a run and the lowest stress I’ve had in weeks but simply due to high heart it tells me I’m stressed. Okay so I started using the app to determine my heart rate instead of stress believing their was correlation between the two. I was wrong but this app tells you otherwise. Okay my second reason is what made me write this review in the first place. Why, why, why would someone build a stress app then send push notifications in a demanding manner? “Time to measure your stress levels!” Really??? Whoever coded this must not truly understand that someone already stressed doesn’t want to see the word “stress” not any “!!!” in their notifications every, single, day.... - especially first thing in the morning after a yoga session. Please fix this + how stress is measured and I’ll change my views because I actually enjoy the layout of this app. The calendar and option to add notes to each scan is beneficial but not so much when the scans are slow + inaccurate.

Completely Inaccurate

I have been using this app for a couple of days and I’m a constant stressor and a way for me to cope with my stress and anxiety is to acknowledge that it isn’t all in my head so I thought this app would be great to help me recognize my high stress levels and to see at what points of the day I’m most stressed. The idea behind this app is great but it has one major flaw upon which the whole app is structured. The finger scan. While it’s incredibly intelligent to use the light in one’s fingertip to tell their bpm I think it’s nearly impossible for someone’s bpm to go from 149 to 23 in seconds... even when I’m as still as possible the scanner fluctuates from mid 100s to low 20s-50s or will tell me it can’t scan because my finger moved or isn’t on the scanner yet I’m pushing my finger down so hard that the camera leaves an indent in my finger. Good idea, poor execution.
