Frequently Asked Questions

How does Mightier work?

With Mightier, calming down is a game and learning how to regulate emotions is the goal. To play, kids wear a wireless heart rate monitor that pairs with our app. As their heart rate rises during play, the games get harder. Then, kids use calming exercises to lower their heart rate and keep playing.

What is emotional regulation?

Emotional regulation is the relationship between understanding emotions and reacting to them. It does not mean suppressing or ignoring them. It’s understanding why they’re happening and what we can do to make the situation better. Because Mightier turns emotional regulation into a game, kids can practice calming skills quickly, while having fun. With time and repetition, these skills become second nature in real life situations.

Is Mightier only for kids with Autism, ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, ODD, or other diagnoses?

Can Mightier replace therapy?

Mightier works with or without therapy. Combining Mightier with therapy has shown faster clinical improvement across all kids, including a significant reduction in clinical symptoms. Without therapy, Mightier has shown measurable improvements in as early as 90 days. Learn more on our science page.

What is the Mightier “Gizmo?”

The Gizmo represents the heart rate monitor inside the game. Essentially, it’s an emotion meter for your child to always stay aware of their heart rate. This helps kids visualize and connect with their emotions, and practice cooling down with instant feedback.
