The Happy Ring has been designed from the ground up, since its inception in 2020 by our founders, Sean Rad and Dustin Freckleton, to be the most accurate, forget-it's-there, beautiful, mental wellness tracker in the industry. The first step in this mission was to determine the most precise, reliable, and highest-efficacy location on the body to gather biometrics to quantify mental wellness. Extensive research by the Happy Health Engineers and industry leaders went on to show that the pads and palms of one's hands and feet were the gateways to the autonomic nervous system.

The autonomic nervous system is a component of the peripheral nervous system that regulates involuntary physiologic processes including heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, digestion, and sexual arousal. It contains three anatomically distinct divisions: sympathetic, parasympathetic, and enteric.

It was determined that by incorporating the highest-grade PPG, EDA, and temperature sensors, one could measure, with uncanny accuracy, the autonomic nervous system, or in layman's terms, the involuntary reactions and processes of the body. This information is the key component in our Live Stress measurement algorithm. With this in mind, there was one clear design choice - a ring.

Designing a ring, in and of itself, is deceivingly difficult. Factoring in designing a smart ring increases the difficulty tenfold! A tip-of-the-iceberg look at what needed to be accounted for:

All of this technology and effort is encompassed in a custom, made-to-size ceramic. Ceramic is a wonderful material for many reasons - it's elegant, has a premium aesthetic, but it also warms to the touch, is very light, and is exceptionally strong. It takes on the character of its environs and uses - like wood, it wears and organically interacts with the atmosphere of your world to change over time, over the lifecycle of wear, creating a unique-to-you device.

The culmination of all of these diligent and distinct efforts yielded the Happy Ring as you know it - the industry's most accurate mental wellness tracker to date.
