Awake Labs develops technology that helps people with intellectual disabilities manage stress so they can spend less time worrying and more time enjoying life.
Their software platform uses a smartwatch and a mobile device. The smartwatch is worn by the person experiencing stress. The mobile app displays real-time stress levels and can be used by self-advocates or their caregivers (e.g. family member, respite worker, personal support worker).
Stress, anxiety, and strong emotions can often present as barriers to inclusion and an enjoyable life for adults with intellectual disabilities. These barriers can be challenging to understand and see. This is where Awake Labs is making a difference.
Their technology helps:
- Improve quality of life for our partners
- Reduce the number of stress-related incidents
- Reduce and eliminate the use of intrusive measures
