Revibe Technologies released Revibe Connect, a wearable watch-like device, in 2018. The device sends vibration reminders to redirect children to stay on task or get back to work. Parents and teachers set the initial schedule of alerts (could be 15 minutes of work time with reminders every 5 minutes). They can also program custom text messages to display at designated times, such as “write down your homework assignment.” Revibe Connect was designed to track attention span, focus rate, motor activity, and fidgeting, and generate reports on a child’s progress.
The company announced in 2022 that it was discontinuing sales of Revibe Connect to focus on newer products, including “FokusRx,” an investigational SaMD (software as a medical device) for ADHD still in early development.
