Groundbreaking research applying physiological measurements

Traditionally learning and teaching have been studied with self-evaluation methods, such as questionnaires and interviews. The new trend in research is to also apply objective measurements.

Liisa Postareff regards that combining subjective and objective data is important when studying pedagogic processes. -From a colleague I heard about electrodermal activity measurement and how it fits well to study emotional and cognitive load. My first thought was that here was the objective data that we would need to study learning situations. We are interested in finding the optimal energy level for both students and teachers, from learning and from well-being point of view.

-Our research has gained a lot of interest by international research groups, says Liisa Postareff.

Successful Moodmetric pilot at Gigantti

According to Päivi Mäenpää the biggest benefit of the Moodmetric measurement was that it facilitated discussion about well-being and load and recovery at the work place. A great thing was also that everyone participated in viewing their own measurement data. – For the employer the measurement gives the big picture. Now when we see things broadly, we have better understanding on what are the factors behind the employees´load and recovery. We can begin to dig deeper into mechanisms of ending on sick leave. And why do some people feel fine even when the environment is sometimes rough? We could also take these things into consideration in the recruitment phase and see who might need more recovery skills already from the start.

We also got positive feedback from the employees: – When we at the end asked “Was this a good thing”, we got a clear thumbs up, says Päivi Mäenpää. According to the feedback questionnaire from Moodmetric, 85% of the participants learned to recognize own mental load and recovery better. This is an excellent result.

The Moodmetric measurement was really insightful for the employees and helped everyone to notice factors behind stress and recovery at their own work and free time.

HERE Technologies is showing the way also in stress management

-Important reason for starting the Moodmetric measurements was the objective data it provides.

There is a lot of technology for assessing physical health, but the available methods to understand mental health are mainly subjective surveys. This is the first measurement that enables easy and almost insivible way to assess stress and recovery also in long term, says Jari Syrjärinne.

HERE’s occupational health physician, Leena Pesonen, was introduced to Moodmetric measurement through another customer and suggested the measurement to HERE as well. – I think the service seemed worth trying and wanted to present it to HERE. There is not that much technology available to be used in occupational health for assessing stress and recovery objectively that motivates the user for better stress management at the same time. I tried the ring myself, and I was impressed. I recognize my stress and recovery reactions very well in my body and it was great to verify that in the graphs of the Moodmetric app, says Leena Pesonen from a Finnish healthcare provider Terveystalo.
