Abstract

The development of an Acupressure Watch Band will help people who have anxiety. This will help improve people who have anxiety and do not want to wear the bracelets that are specifically targeted for anxiety. This is significant because over 20% of the United States has anxiety. The goal for this project is to make an apple watch band that uses acupressure to target the pressure points on the wrist that reduce anxiety. The bracelet needs to be comfortable and also functional. This also needs to blend in and not be noticeable so that people will actually wear this product. This study is different because it is placing the acupressure beads in an Apple watch band instead of the typical bracelet. These bracelets are thick and do not blend in, so this product will blend in since it will look like you are just wearing an Apple watch band. In order to make this bracelet, the acupressure beads will be glued to the middle of the watch and then will be given to people to test it. The materials in this experiment will be apple watch bands, acupressure beads, and glue. The dependent variable will be the amount of anxiety that people experience and the independent variable will be the addition of acupressure beads to the Apple watch band. The results will hopefully show that acupressure can decrease anxiety and that the Apple watch band would want to be used by many people. This Apple watch band will decrease anxiety.
