The InflataCorset is an auto-inflating vest triggered by an internal heart rate sensor. When the heart reaches an excited state, the corset inflates to hug the wearer and calm the nervous system. Then, the heart returns back to a resting rate.

The design is based on research to augment Sensory Processing Disorder — hypersensitivity which ranges from ADHD to Autism. The instant relaxation from the corset is a type of therapeutic bio.media that can be applied to many populations. The corset insures that the heart is never over excited and stays in an optimal state.
