Awake Labs

Awake Labs is a company set to improve the lives of people living with neurological disorders. Their first product, Reveal, is a tool to measure and track stress for the 1 in 68 children who have an autism spectrum disorder. It is based on a wearable and a supporting application that measure physiological indicators of stress and track behaviour. With its machine learning algorithms, Reveal will provide individuals and families with insights to better manage anxiety to promote focus and learning in school, increase independence through early intervention, and improve transition to the workforce. After it is proven in autism, the technology behind Reveal will be expanded to support care for other neurological disorders.
