The Pip, a device that measures stress and helps users manage stress levels through a suite of compelling gaming apps, has launched on crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube.

Dublin-based Galvanic Ltd., the company behind the Pip, is raising funds to grow its new business development team and extend the company’s marketing reach alongside its suite of entertainment and lifestyle applications.

“The Pip has been incredibly well received by therapists, psychologists and consumers around the world,” said Galvanic CEO David Ingram.

“People don’t want to be preached to about stress and work-life balance: they want solutions. With My Pip’s launch and ongoing institutional research and product partnerships, and our crowd funding launch, the future for the Pip and a calmer world is exciting.”

A wireless, hand-held device, the Pip uses biofeedback in the form of galvanic skin response to measure an individual's stress level and communicate it via Bluetooth™ to an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.

The Pip helps consumers who need help to relax, but also major corporations who want to give staff a way to manage their mental wellbeing through the My Pip cloud platform.

My Pip syncs with Pip’s suite of apps, providing deeper insights and actionable data into the user's response to stress, encouraging and motivating them as they learn to manage everyday pressures.
