Sensor monitors stress

This Wearable Sensor Monitors Stress by Detecting Cortisol Level

Mental stress is difficult to measure. A hormone called cortisol, a steroid hormone, are closely linked to changes. There are blood tests available to measure cortisol, but a blood test can raise a person’s stress level itself and it can’t be done frequently, nor without a medical professional.
