A Humanized Technology example
On average, we spend more than 10 hours a day on a digital device. Long-term screen use poses a risk to our mental health, sleep quality and eye health. That’s why the Canadian company Umay Care designed Umay Rest, an eye mask that eliminates the effects of prolonged screen time. This eye mask helps digital device users find stress relief by restoring the natural function of our eyes. For example, it uses Thermal MeditationTM technology that applies small amounts of heat to the eyes. This technology helps to activate oils that are normally released during blinking in our eyes. In this way, the eye mask prevents Digital Eye Strain (DES) and other negative effects from using screens.
Umay Care wants you to use the eye mask as a new daily ritual that redefines self care. This makes Umay Rest an example of Humanized Tech.
