Who is it suitable for?

Chill Panda is for children and adults who want to learn how to manage stress and worry and feel better.

How does it work?

Chill Panda uses the camera on a smartphone or other mobile device to capture your heart rate.

The app uses your device's LED light to measure the volume of blood flowing through your fingertip as your heart beats.

Chill Panda asks you to rate your mood to work out your current emotional state.

You are then encouraged to take part in a variety of playful tasks and activities, including breathing and light exercise.

Chill Panda is not a medical device and heart rate measurements are shown for guidance only.
