He’s not just wearing fashionable ear-wear, host Jamie Davis, the Podmedic is trying to find his inner balance with the new Heart Math Inner Balance app. We’re syncing breathing and heart rate to reduce stress at CES 2013.
Heart Math Inner Balance helps to find that balance by measuring heart rate variability. When we’re stressed the variability of our heart rate is higher than when we’re calm. The app gives a visual representation on the screen when connected to the ear clip sensor.
Visual Cues Trigger Balance
Using the visual cues, the user attempts to calm breathing and heart rate variability so that a uniform green color is displayed on the color wheel. The app tracks progress and a favorite photo can be tied to positive results to trigger later periods of balance.
The sensor clip and the app will both be available in February, 2013.
