Tully, an AI bracelet that improves the emotional awareness of children, launched its Kickstarter campaign in 2022, aiming to provide a tech-driven solution to kids showing symptoms of ADHD  (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).

What exactly is the ADHD bracelet Tully?

Tully bracelets aren’t simply ADHD awareness bracelets. These bracelets are an amalgam of artificial intelligence, biometrics, and analytics that essentially produce solutions for ADHD and ADD symptoms on the fly.

According to Tully, the AI bracelet is an easy-to-wear, subtly-designed tracking tool capable of analyzing changes in the wearer’s emotions. The cool accessory does this by measuring the wearers’  biometric data, such as heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, impulsivity, and movement intensity, among other variables, making it one of the best supplementary therapy tools on the market today.

Tully’s AI-based algorithms create an analysis in real-time, providing assessments, basic medical advice, and feedback when it detects emotional levels that are specific to ADHD and ADD.

For example, if the device detects high levels of aggravation in a 10-year-old ADHD patient, it signals the child with a vibrating alert, with the same information relayed over to the parents remotely. The incident is then input to Tully AI’s behavioral pattern database so that the system can “learn” better next time.

The behavioral patterns can also be taken and processed separately, allowing an independent professional to analyze and evaluate the information. This makes Tully an excellent learning aid for doctors and other medical experts who study ADHD and other related conditions like sensory processing disorder.

As a tool meant to be worn all the time, especially during a school day, significant focus was given to making the design of Tully simple and minimalistic. It has a sleek form and a smooth texture but is intended to look fun enough for a child to want to wear it. Looking a lot like a durable smartwatch, Tully features LED lighting that displays lots of color and swappable bands that can be adjusted to match the actual wrist size of the wearer for great comfort.

Unlike most jewelry bracelets that are made with small pieces of gemstones or charms that could be a choking hazard for children, the Tully AI bracelet is made with larger components that are less likely to pose a risk.

What is the age range for Tully to be effective?

According to its developers, Tully is most useful between the ages of 6 and 17, when the child or teen starts to experience different or increasing emotional reactions and to learn how to deal with them.

The bracelet is still an effective way outside this range, mainly for the detection and monitoring of the emotional balance of lower-aged patients who need regular medical care. The developer said that the youngest child they had in the testing program was 4, and although the guidance part was not always effective, the detection worked perfectly.

Does Tully work for adults?

Yes, Tully works for adults. Although the detection and intervention algorithms of Tully were originally developed for children, it was found that Tully bracelets are just as accurate in tracking and responding to adult users’ emotions, as it is with children, after introducing AI capabilities to them. In fact, Tully is available in an adult-size version.

Does Tully work for autism?

Yes, Tully also works for autism. Although the initial focus of the bracelet was ADHD for children, the developers of the wearable tech realized during the development and testing that its use cases are much wider, and that includes autism.

Does Tully work for anxiety, depression, and related conditions?

In the current form of Tully’s algorithms or with minor adjustments to be delivered via firmware updates, the developers said Tully can help with certain manifestations of anxiety (panic attacks, PTSD, BPD). As for general depression, they said they need more time to look into how the bracelet can help with it.

Does intense exercising influence Tully’s detection performance?

Disclaimer: Extreme physical activity would affect Tully’s physiological indicators and the information it gathers, and because of that the bracelet goes into some sort of slack mode and does not issue alarms when the movement indicators are above a certain level, corresponding with a PE class, recess, or running around on the playground.

In any other case, the agitation is accurately correlated with the stress level and with the probability of an emotional reaction, as the algorithm learns from the user.

How much does Tully cost?

The funding and promotions period for Tully ended in August 2022, and as of May 2023, the team behind this smart jewelry is currently in the process of assembling the first batch of orders.

Tully had a starting price of $119 during the funding period, but it was said that the device would retail for $180 when it became available to the general public.

It’s worth noting that users need to pay a separate subscription fee to get full access to the data stored on the bracelet. Without a subscription, there would be limited visibility into the data collected and processed by Tully, both from the point of view of the insight level and historical evolution. The subscription also allows sharing of the data with a therapist or medical practitioner. Outside of the crowdfunding campaign or any other discounts, the subscription will be $9.90 per month.

Will Tully be available outside the United States?

Yes, Tully can be delivered anywhere in the world.

Further information about the device and its developers can be found on Tully’s official Kickstarter and Indiegogo pages.
