Mimamori (看守り)

Mimamori is a penguin-shaped amulet of protection, which is made for social workers to use on a daily basis as a device for handling high levels of stress.

  • Identifies the stress level condition by taking the daily pulse and corporal temperature
  • In highly stressful situations, spreads aroma particles to facilitate breath to relax.
  • Sends stress level data to the manager for better communicating your condition
