About the Project
Total Brain is a mental wellness platform focusing on neuroscience-based assessments and daily exercises to boost cognitive, emotional, self-control, and emotional functions.
Torii Studio partnered with them to develop a scientifically-backed resonant breathing exercise, enhancing relaxation and stress management in the user experience.
Create the breathing animation
Build prototypes to achieve the right look and feel
Implement the end-to-end experience for the website and the mobile app.
Technical limitations. Both the web and mobile frameworks were using outdated libraries and processes.
Parameters. It was important that the experience we were creating corresponded to the science behind it, i.e., length of the breathing intervals.
Multiple buy-ins. Animations and interactions had to be approved by the design, research, and engineering teams.
We created early-stage prototypes using the same production frameworks, enabling us to proactively address limitations and detect design issues. Collaboration with Total Brain's UX research team in validation sessions allowed us to iteratively refine the product using their feedback.
The component library facilitated the implementation of the Resonant Breathing feature, maintaining a uniform appearance across platforms. This resource accelerated our design process, enabling swift iterations. Additionally, it equipped Total Brain's engineering team with a selection of reliable, reusable components.
Total Brain's Resonant Breathing feature offers users personalized stress reduction exercises. Collaborative efforts and our Agile process expedited mobile and desktop feature development in under two months, providing a science-based solution for stress management.
Our successful collaboration on this project expanded into a comprehensive platform overhaul. Discover how we improved Total Brain's app from 2.5 stars to 4 stars and boosted daily user engagement by 300% here.
