March 27, 2013

In this short Ignite talk, Dave Marvit from Fujitsu Labs of America talks about a prototype system he is developing to track stress and monitoring stressful events in veterans with PTSD. The Sprout system brings in and syncs multiple data streams allowing researchers, clinicians, and individuals to develop a deeper insight into what’s really happening during stress events. Make sure to listen to the end for a surprise twist from Dave when he talks about using the system to measure his stress while driving to work. (Filmed at the 2012 QS Conference.)
