Yellow Factory has developed a product for people with tension type headaches.
We designed the ePatch, an electric patch which has to prevent tension type headaches. A wrong posture of the shoulders is believed to be the main cause for tension type headaches. The ePatch is to make the wearer more conscious of their shoulder posture through myofeedback. This is done by measuring muscle tension using EMG electrodes. When the electrodes measure high tension feedback is given to signal to the wearer that they should relax. The project is funded by OP Oost.
