Based on nearly two centuries of scientific research
ZYTO Hand Cradle technology is based on established scientific principles that date back to 1849, when physician and physiologist Emil du Bois-Reymond discovered that skin was electrically active. In 1879, Dubois-Reymond’s work was advanced further when French neurologist Charles Fere found that skin resistance could change based on emotional stimulation.
Now, over 150 years later, electrodermal activity (EDA), a term now used synonymously with galvanic skin response (GSR), has been the subject of hundreds of professional publications. Those who may be skeptical that a device can accurately measure GSR need only look at the scientific studies contained in many of these publications to find that the technology is anything but pseudoscience.
Designed for accuracy
In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the Hand Cradle is designed for maximum functionality and accuracy. The fact that it has 6 different points of contact separates it from other electrodermal and GSR devices, many of which only have 2 contact points.
Along with the advantage of gathering GSR data from multiple contacts, each contact point is also large enough to connect to several points on the skin. With more contact points covering a larger surface area, the Hand Cradle is able to provide a consistently high level of accuracy that’s unmatched in the industry.
Fast, easy scanning
With the ability to scan more than 100 Virtual Items per minute, the Hand Cradle is fast in addition to being accurate. That speed allows you to perform a simple product library scan in a matter of minutes. Establishing and maintaining a connection with the Hand Cradle is easy as well, as the finger and palm pads will typically register skin contact with just a small amount of pressure.
The only FDA-cleared galvanic skin response device
The ZYTO Hand Cradle is the culmination of years of research and development in the field of galvanic skin response technology. It’s also currently the only device on the market that’s cleared by the FDA (510k Class II Medical Device).
We work closely with the FDA to ensure that our software and hardware remains 100% compliant. ZYTO and the FDA have similar goals related to the well-being of our customers, which is why we view the FDA as a partner in customer wellness.
