The InflataCorset is a heart rate sensor-initiated inflatable corset. When the heartbeat reaches an excited, panic state, a wireless heart rate sensor triggers the air pump. Then, the corset inflates. The external pressure of the vest on the skin calms the nervous system and returns the heart back to a resting rate.

The design is based on research to augment Sensory Processing Disorder — hypersensitivity which ranges from ADHD to Autism. The instant relaxation from the corset is a type of therapeutic bio.media that can be applied to many populations.
