Insecurity and social isolation can result from the symptoms. The product is based on facts from neuroscience. VIM! With Vim, the user gets a piece of independence back. Vim is a small, smart companion that gives those affected a feeling of security. The active 'holding on' triggers an increased self-esteem for many, combined with the pulsation of the device, Vim transmits the breathing rhythms. In this way, the user can be guided by tactile perception and, through guided breathing, returns to a state of relaxation.
