1 out of 50 people have OCD in the United States: Smart bracelet helps quit small habits (美國每50人有1人患強迫症 智慧手帶助戒甩小動作)

July 08, 2017

而除了可配合用藥及行為治療,論壇所見,幫助強迫症患者的科技都日新月異,如貌似時尚Fitbit智能手帶的Keen「habitaware」手帶,就是專門幫用家戒掉一些不想要的小動作,一偵測到他們作出預設的姿勢,就會震動提醒用家停止,又能紀錄相關數據,價錢只是約100美元(約780港元)至200美元(約1,560港元)。即使不是OCD患者,想戒掉咬手或咬筆等這類小動作,都可以幫上忙。

Translated:  In addition to drugs that can be used with the treatment to help OCD patients, a Fitbit-like smart bracelet, Keen by HabitAware, helps users quit unwanted habits. It is able to detect the trained behavior and send a vibration to the user as a reminder to stop the behavior. The price is only about 100 US dollars (about 780 HKD) to 200 US dollars (about 1,560 HKD). Even if it’s not for OCD patients, Keen can also help if you want to quit biting pens or other similar behaviors.
