The Moodmetric smart ring as a tool for field research

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.
