Today more and more people suffer from insomnia, depression, head-, back- and neck-aches. One of the factors that have contributed to this mental and physical illness is STRESS.
The goal with this project has been to develop product concepts that help people to avoid or reduce the damaging side effects of stress.
X-Concepts are four design concepts for health improvement products. The products are based on well-known methods/theories for stress relief and well being. The idea with the health improvement products has been to make them easy to use, easy accessible, fun and inspiring so they can become a natural part of peoples daily life/routines and make people feel better.
X01 - Communication jewellery: A new communication concept for giving support and showing emotions between couples.
X02 - Relaxation improver: Small portable device that helps and teach people to relax.
X03 - Sleep stimulator: An aid for better sleep, which stimulates the body to a good night sleep and easy awakening.
X04 - Wearable tension reliever: Advanced clothing that improves well-being and comfort of the wearer.
