A new stress busting bra that can help people monitor their comfort eating habit has been developed by scientists. This has been developed keeping in mind the fact that people tend to eat more when they are stressed.
According to Discovery News, researchers at Microsoft Research designed the bra in such way that will keep a watch on wearers' mood and let them know when they are overeating.
The sensor pads, which are created with a microprocessor powered by a 3.7-volt battery, are able to sample up to eight bio-signal channels at once.
The sensors record heart rate and respiration with an EKG sensor, skin conductance with an electrodermal activity sensor, and movement with an accelerometer.
Mary Czerwinski, senior researcher in visualization and interaction at Microsoft, said that it's mostly women who are emotional overeaters, and the bra is perfect for measuring EKG.
