The Moodmetric smart ring provides real-time data on the autonomic nervous system. It is a research tool for measuring continuously, in normal daily life as well as long term.
The Moodmetric smart ring is a user-friendly way to capture electrodermal activity (EDA), which tells about the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. EDA measurement has been applied in psychophysiological research for over 100 years.
Moodmetric has brought the measuring of EDA from the laboratory to field research. This cost-efficient method enables research to be carried out on large groups for long periods of time.
The measurement data tells especially of cognitive and emotional stress. Recently the Moodmetric smart ring has been used for, for example, research on mental load at work, customer experience, and social interaction.

The Moodmetric measurement is a good tool for long-term research, complementing the picture of a person´s well-being and recovery from stress given by heart rate measurements.
I heard from a colleague of the EDA and how it is well suited for measuring emotional and cognitive stress. My first thought was that this is exactly the complementing information that we need when researching situations of teaching and learning.
The conclusions appear to support the hypothesis that the Moodmetric smart ring can provide information on the stressfulness of work-related situations almost as accurately as respective laboratory equipment designed to measure EDA.
