TIME FOR

SLOW BREATHING

 

 

DÜRFEN WIR VORSTELLEN: HEARTBREATH

 

How does it work:

More than just your resting heart rate! With 6-8 breaths you can determine your heart rate AND the variability of your heartbeats (measure of stress, fitness, biological age etc.) - no magic - hard facts right from your iPhone

Did you know that your heart beats faster during inhalation and slower during exhalation AND did you know that this is good for you?

The technical term is RSA (respiratory sinus arrhythmia) - a good arrhythmia controlled by your autonomic nervous system. High variability of the heart rate stands for a good autonomic balance and activity of the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and relaxation nerve). HeartBreath is a biofeedback tool, that addresses exactly this relationship between breathing and heart rate.

The app guides you through a simple slow-breathing exercise (with pictures and sounds), while detecting and displaying the intervals between your heartbeats. You can measure, train and evaluate your personal status. No additional hardware devices are needed. HeartBreath is able to detect heartbeats by positioning your finger on the lens of the phone’s camera.

 

NOW WITH ECG SUPPORT: 

In our newest version 2.1.1 we have added (true) ECG support for compatible devices (Polar H10):

  • Live ECG from the heart rate monitor (display and recording).

  • Realtime detection of heartbeats from the ECG.

  • Storage and review of ECG-Data.

  • ECG Export for external analysis.

  • Live comparison: Heartbeats from the ECG vs. heartbeats from the finger on the camera.

  • Recording and display of breathing curve from the heart rate monitor (experimental).

HeartBreath is able to detect heartbeats from a finger on the lens of the iPhone's (or iPod's) camera.

ACTIVATE THE CAMERA

Pictures and/or sounds are used for pacing your breathing while recording heartbeats.

RECORD A SESSION

At the end of recording you are able to review your HRV data including mechanisms for comparison to the data of former sessions.
