Bad habits become bad habits because we do them subconsciously. The key to Keen is that it trains your brain to recognize when you’re about to do your bad habit. Once it’s makes that recognition and notifies you, your more cognizant of it. Once you realize you’re doing it, it’s easier to stop.
That’s when she came up with the idea for Keen, a unique wearable that uses a motion sensor to help stop people from bad habits like pulling your hair, fidgeting, scratching and more. When the user’s hands make the motion that they’re about to do their bad habit they get haptic feedback reminding them to stop. And it works.
