Julia amidst a crowd of people.

She feels the panic attack coming up. 

She takes the body from the Watch bracelet in her hand. The breathing exercise, which she has set before, starts automatically. 

At the same time her mother gets a message on her Smartphone that Julia suffers from a panic attack. So she can call her and distract her from the attack. 

 

After the attack

Julia can save her symptoms and how she felt during the attack and share it with her doctor. 

The data exchange between the user and the doctor should be used as a supportive therapy, so that the attacks and the vital functions ​​can be oberserved and the therapy methods can be adjusted accordingly.
