Brain in Hand

Brain in Hand was created by academics, business and technology experts, healthcare and psychology professionals in the UK. A smartphone-based system devised for people with autism, it is now being rolled out to other groups.

Users can call for support when it’s needed, rather than when it’s available and can use an anxiety monitor with a traffic light system to indicate how they are coping. It is a technological umbilical cord which keeps people connected while letting them be independent.
