Stress is an issue that everyone experiences in today’s modern life. Prolonged exposure to stress can cause many mental and physical diseases. Accordingly, the stress management issue has become popular, and the need for personal healthcare devices has increased in recent years. Therefore, the aim of this research is to design and manufacture a portable stress monitoring system, based on photoplethysmography (PPG) and galvanic skin response (GSR) physiological signals, acquired by wearable… Expand
