Keeping body and mind in balance
We all know that the daily challenges require energy from body (physical energy) and mind (mental energy). Consuming energy is normal and the body has been made to handle it. However, energy which is used is no longer available and therefore needs to be regained. A good mental health starts with regular recovery.
BioRICS Mindstretch is a preventive tool that gives insights in mental energy use and recovery, based on objective measurements from the body. If your metabolic system – and also your immune system – comes under pressure due to chronic stress or lasting mental load, the BioRICS Mindstretch app alerts you and helps you to take action before a health issue appears.

Why monitor your energy balance?
Many people often lack energy or feel permanently tired without knowing why. This can happen after a period of feeling extremely fit & full of energy, making them believe that they can cope with every challenge in life! However, at that very moment, they are putting themselves in danger, building-up chronic stress. Chronic stress makes people perform extraordinary well but after this phase, exhaustion follows.
- How much mental energy is used by the brain during the day and for which events;
- How much mental energy is regained during the day and which events help to recover;
- How much recovery is catched from sleep and has filled-up the battery to start the day with;
- How does the energy balance evolve over several weeks and months.
The BioRICS Mindstretch methodology is built on science. The measurement results are accurate and reliable, also when the user is moving.
As every individual is different and unique, the algorithms adapt to the time-varying character of the user and therefore use an individual baseline.
Private and discrete
As the software runs on the user’s own smartphone, it is a fully private tool that can be used in all secrecy by the user only.
The user always stays in control of his/her data and he/she is the only person who can decide whether or not to share personal results with other parties (i.e. the coach or professional care provider).
Prevention is key
To prevent a person from developing a health problem at some moment in his/her life, health monitoring (using a wearable) should start early enough and become part of everyday life (like wearing a watch or jewel).
The BioRICS Mindstretch app runs in an automated way and allows continuous monitoring 24hr/7.
