# Research

This research in no way attempts to be scientific, extensive, or based on any proven data.
The main purpose of this 'wearable' technology is to help those with emotional dysregulation challenges. To help them recognise the heightened state of emotional arousal by sensing physiological and other behavioural changes and producing an noticeable output.

Having something that can recognise this state for them and give noticeable feedback can perhaps go towards bringing them out of this state of mind. Helping sufferers deal with this will remove an obstacle in the way of dealing with their other challenges.

## What is emotion regulation?
---
> Emotional self-regulation or emotion regulation is the ability to respond to the ongoing demands of experience with the range of emotions in a manner that is socially tolerable and sufficiently flexible to permit spontaneous reactions as well as the ability to delay spontaneous reactions as needed. It can also be defined as extrinsic and intrinsic processes responsible for monitoring, evaluating, and modifying emotional reactions. Emotional self-regulation belongs to the broader set of emotion regulation processes, which includes both the regulation of one's own feelings and the regulation of other people's feelings.

## What are the physiological signs of an emotion de-regulation episode?
---
Situations where emotional dysregulation occur are usually activated by stress triggers. These can have physiological effects on the body, much the same as with regular high stress effects. It is these which need to find an equivalent sensor to monitor them.

## CONCLUSION

That this is a good idea if others have developed this concept already and been managed to make a business from this concept.
That this is a good idea if others have developed this concept already and have managed to make a business from this concept.
Developing my idea should begin with one sensor, based on my knowledge and skills at this time. Further development spirals would include more sensors, and therefore multiple sources of input to evaluate a more accurate response of the device.

# USER CASES
To better illustrate the functionality and uses of this final project concept in various configurations.
## USER CASE 1 - Individual with emotional dysregulation challenges
![User Case 1](../user-cases/Angry_girl.jpg "emotional dysregulation challenges")
Image: [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Angry_girl.jpg "Angry_girl")
**Scenario**
An individual with multiple challenges has the added obstacle of emotional dysregulation, which hinders them from dealing with their other challenges. The device would help them recognise when they're in a state high emotional and (hopefully) bring them back down to a point where they can regulate their emotions and move on.
## USER CASE 2 - Therapist / Rehabilitation use
![User Case 2](../user-cases/rehabilitation.jpg "Therapy / rehabilitation")
Image: [Flintrehab.com](https://www.flintrehab.com/stroke-rehab-equipment/ "rehabilitation")
**Scenario**
A physical therapist uses the device to aid in the rehabilitation of stroke patients or those with fine motor skills problems. As part of a playful set of exercises or tasks, maintaining a constant or targetted feedback from the device would promote smooth movements or goals in the level to reach.
## USER CASE 3 - Dancer / Recreational use
![User Case 3](../user-cases/dancer.jpg " Dancer / Recreational use ")
Image: [Warble-entertainment.com](https://www.warble-entertainment.com/spellbound-led-dancers "Dancer / Recreational use")
**Scenario**
A professional dancer/choreographer or weekend clubber, this device will react with their movements, for creative and expressive purposes.
---
## CONCLUSION
---
This device should be:
- Easy to use.
- Non-intrusive to wear.
- Ability to attach to different wrist sizes.
- Multiple functionality / levels of feedback.
