Overall Verdict..

Touchpoint was initially launched as part of Buzzies Kickstarter – an online crowd-funding campaign to provide the financial means for the company’s production launch.

Since its market release, TouchPoints™ has become an overnight success and the company faced severe order backlogs reaching 6 to 8 weeks due to unanticipated and overwhelming demand!

While the waiting periods have now somewhat eased, the product’s popularity demonstrates the positive impact that using TouchPoints™ has had on peoples’ lives, and has eased any doubts in minds of potential consumers.

Though the product is still pending a patent, it is quite safe to conclude that the TouchPoints™ revolution may have already kicked in. Interested consumers should avoid long waiting times by securing their device from the official TouchPoints™ website by clicking the below link:

How do TouchPoints™ Work?

Touchpoint Solution’s tagline for TouchPoints™ goes like this:

Reduce up to 70% Stress in less than 30 seconds

But how does that work? Magic? No, let me explain..

BLAST Technology (Bi-lateral Alternating Stimulation-Tactile Technology)! In plain English, TouchPoints™ work by interfering with the stress response of a person’s body.

The use of BLAST technology is based on pre-established set of treatments and scientific researches. However, Dr Serin, the innovator behind TouchPoints™ has adopted this tried and tested technology and used it in completely different settings – as a wearable device.

TouchPoints™ are not intended for use to treat medical conditions and should not be treated as a substitute for medical advice. TouchPoints™ are general-wellness devices that could be used daily.

Quick Review of the TouchPoints™ App

TouchPoints™ could be triggered via your smartphone or tablet App. The Apps seems intuitive and supports both Android and iOS versions. The interface is clean easy to navigate. The latency between when the device is triggered via the app to when the device fires is negligible – which is great! Check out the video:

Who can use TouchPoints™ as an Anxiety wearable Device?

The common misconception in the market is that TouchPoints™ only works for people with Autism and/or ADHD. This is not quite true!

Although the device was primarily designed for ADHD and Autistic individuals, anyone can benefit from its use.

According to the product guidelines, TouchPoints™ is meant to work for anyone who is prone to stress, anxiety, depression, or even anger cravings.

The makers of TouchPoints™ believe that the product even works to improve performance and ease stressful situations, such as exam pressures or de-stressing before an important meeting.

You can wear it on either of your wrists, keep it in your socks or just clip it to your belt. The choice is yours—but remember that the device will make a buzzing sound (20% less than your smartphone on vibration mode)!

Remember, TouchPoints™ is not water proof! (It can withstand minor water contact, just like any other electronic device, but it should not be used while swimming, bathing etc.)

Do TouchPoints™ Work for Autism & ADHD?

Studies show that continued stress can lead to serious longer term medical conditions. The good news is that people have been reporting noticeable changes after using the TouchPoints™ device.

Statistical Review on Effect of TouchPoints™

Recent studies have analyzed statistical data from the newly created TouchPoints™ user base of 140 individuals. The data shows how people have experienced a 74% change in their stress levels, and an additional 68% reduction in their stress-related body sensations.

Here is some evidence that the group collected as part of their TouchPoints™ Challenge campaign:

Graph showing Reduction in Stress Level after using Buzzies
The bar graph depicts data from 140 TouchPoints™ users who rated their stress levels on a scale of 0 (no stress) and 10 (extreme stress) before TouchPoints™ and again 30 seconds after they used TouchPoints™.
Graph showing Reduction in body sensation issues after using Buzzies
This graph summarizes data from the same 140 TouchPoints™ users who rated their intensity of body sensations related to stress on a scale of 0 (no stress) and 10 (extreme stress) before TouchPoints™ and again 30 seconds after using TouchPoints™.
Buzzies Reviews from 597 users on Stree factors
The average starting stress level was 7.49 and after just 30 seconds of use, it dropped to 1.93, which is clinically significant.
Buzzies for autism reviews on same 597 users
The average intensity of the distressing body sensations was 4.9 and after just 30 seconds of use, it dropped to 1.56, which is clinically significant.

The new evidence combined with archived benefits of BLAST technology suggests that there is a consistent trend towards giving users significant relief from physiological and psychological stress in about 30 seconds.

This data represents a research milestone because replicating data in different conditions is important for validating the science behind TouchPoints™.
