WHAT IS HRV?
Heart Rate Variability, simply known as HRV, was identified in 1733 yet it wasn't until the 1960's when advanced metrics were first measured. However, until recent technological advances, the cost of the equipment needed for accurate daily readings and the time it took to figure out the algorithms made HRV an impractical tool for all but well-funded laboratory research settings.
In recent years, HRV monitors became smaller and very affordable. A simple smartphone application takes the data from the monitors, applies the algorithms, and provides users accurate data on their social, emotional, mental, and medical health.
HRV becomes a practical and powerful tool that, with proper implementation, helps change lives.
Enhance HRV scores with training
Biofeedback is a powerful tool that teaches people to develop greater awareness and ability to influence their physiological and mental functions by using signals from their own bodies. Biofeedback trains self-regulation and resilience for your mind and body.
Physiological processes such as heart rate variability can be accurately measured using the Optimal HRV app. With guidance using the Biofeedback training modules, you can learn to modify your physiological responses in ways beneficial to your health.
