Awake Labs is committed to improving the lives of individuals with mental health disorders. Their first product is Reveal, a wearable device to measure anxiety for the 1-in-68 individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, to empower families giving better insights into care, understand complex behaviours, and promote long term independence through self-regulation. Reveal measures physiological indicators of anxiety in real-time to provide caregivers with quantified data that will better inform their care and maximize their child’s potential. Awake Labs incorporated in September 2015, and has been developing Reveal through a UBC CREB-approved study.
The team has secured partnerships with local and international autism support providers, and participated in reputable business programs like the Next36 and the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub.
Awake Labs is managed by Andrea Palmer, CEO, and Paul Fijal, Head of Product Development. Andrea studied Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Mechatronics at UBC and is a Singularity University graduate. Paul studied Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Biomedical, and is a TEDx speaker.
