Zensorium’s Tinké monitors your health and stress levels
Do you agree that life these days are far more stressful compared to what our grandparents had in their day? Of course, I am not referring to those times when one was living in the midst of a world war as those were dreadful and awful moments, but rather, when everything is going all right with a recession thrown into the mix once in a while. Well, in this day and age, we live extremely fast paced lifestyles, and the Tinké from Zensorium might just be able to offer some sort of respite. Basically, the Tinké is a device which is used to monitor cardiorespiratory health as well as stress levels.
Juliana Chua, Principal of Zensorium’s Business Innovation Group, said, “Monitoring cardiorespiratory health and stress levels are an important yet neglected aspect of understanding one’s health and wellness progression which is in line with the Quantified Self movement. Tinké’s compact, innovative and unique design with no‐fuss portability means that it can be used anytime, anywhere.”
Cardiorespiratory health has been defined as the ability of your heart, lungs and organs to consume, transport and utilize oxygen, and it ought to be tracked and monitored so that one is able to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Tinké relies on optical sensing technologies in order to capture blood volume which changes at your fingertips, where it quantifies both cardiorespiratory health and stress levels into indexes. These two indexes will trend alongside one another for daily and monthly monitoring, while delivering a better understanding of your health progression from the comfort of your mobile devices.
The Vita Index is a personalized cardiorespiratory score which is depicted after putting together data collected from heart rate, blood oxygen level and respiratory rate, while the Zen Index relies on heart rate variability as its basis, churning out a personalized score for your stress levels. Tinké will of course engage the social side of things, letting you share your results on Facebook so that others can berate you to start hitting the treadmill. Tinké will come in grey, blue, pink, and white colors at $119 a pop.
