Indonesians Create Device to Fight Phone Addiction

印尼发明设备戒除手机上瘾

Indonesian university student Tyas Sisianindita spends about eight hours a day on her phone.

印尼大学学生Tyas Sisianindita每天花八个小时玩手机。

That time includes watching videos, chatting with friends and using social media.

包括看视频、和朋友聊天和使用社交媒体。

"I realize that I am addicted," she said, noting she checks her phone countless times from morning until night. She even checks it while in class.

“我意识到自己上瘾了,”她说,从早上到晚上,自己无数次地查看手机。甚至在课堂上也会查看。

"At night, when I can't sleep, I can use my phone for up to five hours," she said.

“晚上,当我睡不着的时候,可以玩手机长达5个小时,”她说。

Tyas goes to the University of Indonesia, where a team of students recently developed a device meant to fight phone addiction.

Tyas去了印度尼西亚大学,印尼大学的学生最近开发了一种可以对抗手机上瘾的设备。

The students spent three months creating the device, which can help internet users like Tyas decrease time they spend looking at their phones.

学生们花了三个月的时间创造了这个设备,这可以帮助像Tyas这样的互联网用户减少看手机的时间。

Inventor Irfan Budi Satria led the development team.

发明者Irfan Budi Satria领导开发团队。

The device is called "Nettox," which combines the words "internet" and "detox." Users wear it on their arm. The device has a sensor that measures hemoglobin oxygen levels and changes to the heart rate called HRV.

这款设备名为“Nettox”,结合了“互联网”和“排毒”两个词。用户把它戴在胳膊上。该设备有一个传感器,测量血红蛋白氧水平和心率变化称为HRV。

Studies have found that using a mobile phone for long hours can lower HRV levels. The Nettox device makes a sound when HRV and blood oxygen levels fall, which reminds wearers to stop using their phones.

研究发现,长时间使用手机可以降低HRV水平。当HRV和血氧水平下降时,网络毒素设备会发出声音,提醒使用者停止使用手机。

For people between the ages of 18 and 25, the HRV should stay above 60. That information comes from the American Psychological Association.

对于18到25岁的人群,HRV应该保持在60以上。这些信息来自美国心理协会。

At a recent trial, Tyas's HRV reading was 44.

在最近的一次试验中,Tyas的HRV读数为44。

Internet addiction is a growing social issue in Indonesia. In October, two teenagers were treated for their addiction to internet gaming, media reported.

网瘾在印尼是一个日益严重的社会问题。据媒体报道,10月份,两名青少年因沉迷网络游戏而接受治疗。

Irfan Budi Satria's team is working to improve Nettox's accuracy. HRV readings can change depending on if the user is a man or woman, and what their body shape and health conditions are.

Irfan Budi Satria的团队正在努力提高Nettox的准确性。HRV的读数可以根据使用者的性别,以及他们的体型和健康状况而变化。

The team aims to get a patent for their invention with the university by next year.

团队的目标是在明年之前将他们的发明获得专利。

Irfan says Nettox is for people already trying to change their behavior.

Irfan说,这款软件是为那些已经试图改变自己行为的人准备的。

"Our goal is to help...people who want to free themselves from internet addiction," he said.

“我们的目标是帮助……那些想摆脱上瘾的人,”他说。
