Grasp, 2017

Industrial Design

Under an increasingly stressed health-service, patients are encouraged to take their own health into responsibility—so in designing an object to empower those feeling under mild anxiety, stress, and panic, we can relieve pressure on health services.


Grasp is a tool for facing adversity, gaining acceptance, and starting recovery. It provides a platform from which individuals can take power over anxiety, stress, and panic, in controlling breathing during times of need. Grasp is designed to monitor pulse and breathing, and through visual and haptic feedback, guide senses back to a safe space.


Utilising Grasp, you are invited to reach out and have help in guiding yourself back to a place of present mind during difficult times. We might not always have people to reach out to, or feel it necessary to do so; and Grasp offers an object in which you can release anxieties without letting stress compound.
