Revibe Technologies Launches World’s First Focus Tracker
Revibe Connect is a reminder vibration watch designed to improve focus and attention in children and adults
WAKE FOREST, N.C. (Jan. 15, 2018) – Revibe Technologies today announced the launch of Revibe Connect®, the latest version of the reminder vibration watch designed to help children and adults improve self-awareness and refocus when needed. The updated device approximates when the user is likely to be distracted and sends a quiet vibration reminder, prompting the user to mindfully get back on-task. Advanced sensors collect data on activity and behavior.
Revibe Connect is a second-generation model developed with research funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education [Grant #ED-IES-17-C-0047]. The original Revibe device was created by Rich Brancaccio, a former school psychologist, and is currently used by children in thousands of schools in all 50 states.
“I used to work with children on a regular basis who struggled academically due to focus and attention issues and had to rely on teachers and parents to keep them on-track throughout the day,” said Rich Brancaccio, Founder and CEO at Revibe Technologies. “With the new and improved Revibe Connect, children and adults are more empowered than ever with easy access to the data needed to understand their behavior and improve. The Revibe Connect helps us meet our most important company goal: helping people reach their fullest potential.”
Powered by a patent-pending machine learning algorithm, Revibe Connect is customizable and learns the user’s needs, adapting the frequency of reminders accordingly and sharing results via the new mobile app. Key features of the Revibe Connect include:
Focus Reminder Vibrations: Intelligent, self-adjusting vibrations throughout the day to promote productive behavior.
Customizable Text Reminders: Allowing the user to program custom reminders to display on the device at certain times of day.
Programmable Schedule: Allowing the user to enter a class or work schedule to view focus metrics by activity and disable reminder vibrations when they aren't needed.
Water-Resistant Design: Providing advanced protection from splashes and spills.
Daily Reporting: Providing data on focus, attention span, fidgets and steps, displaying results via the Revibe mobile app in easy-to-understand formats to identify important patterns and track progress.
In July 2018, Revibe Technologies announced a strategic partnership with Multi-Health Systems (MHS) as part of a recent funding round. MHS is a leading publisher of scientifically validated assessments that aligns extensive scientific research and powerful data with innovative technologies to inform critical decisions in mental health and education.
“We are thrilled to establish a strategic partnership with such a cutting-edge wearable platform like Revibe,” said Hazel Wheldon, President and CEO of Multi-Health Systems. “This partnership will allow our companies to work together to propel new advances in wearable technology into the marketplace to help change the way we collect and utilize data.”
