Design of Smart Heart Rate Monitoring and Stress Detection System with Cloud Data Storage and Privacy
The COVID-19 pandemic affected the entire world in various ways. It influenced the global order, lives, livelihoods, travel, workspace, digital systems and most importantly the health systems. One unarguably the most unusual and striking effect of the pandemic has been on the mental health of people worldwide as lives underwent drastic changes in the pandemic. As the pandemic continues, the demand for mental health treatment is only increasing with focus on more personalized and customized healthcare as each individual has his/her own sets of issues, fears and insecurities and ‘one size-fits-all’ approach cannot be practiced in such cases. This paper presents a comprehensive solution in the form of a novel stress monitoring system that detects stress levels and guides the person to relax by pursuing a hobby like watching a meditative video or distract for some time and play some soothing game. It also alerts his personal psychiatrist or doctor who can then check up on him and prescribe him appropriate treatment and medication in case of high stress levels.
