Modern technology has advanced the medical industry, as well as our personal lifestyles, in many and various ways. Technological devices pervade all aspects of modern medicine and are now found in the operating room, in the x-ray scanning centers, in the Doctors’ local offices and now in the individuals’ homes. The range of equipment is significant and spans from highly sophisticated robotics, to MRI scans, to EKG measurements, to home monitoring devices.
The bottom line is that this technology is now readily available for your personal and professional use.
The technology utilized in the devices and systems described within this website is highly advanced, proven, well accepted, integrated with innovative software, and presented with intuitive user interfaces and comprehensive reporting.
The underlying technology and principles employed within the systems include Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and other technologies that are integrated into highly advanced system offerings.
Heart rate variability (HRV)
HRV is the physiological phenomenon of variation in the time interval between heartbeats. It is measured by the variation in the beat-to-beat interval. Other terms for HRV may include cycle length variability, RR variability, and heart period variability. This ECG based measurement is considered to be the most accurate and reliable.
Since HRV has been shown to be a biomarker of certain myocardial conditions, interest in HRV includes the field of cardiovascular research and the field of psychophysiology, as it relates to various levels of emotional activity.
Variation in the beat-to-beat interval is a physiological phenomenon. The sinoatrial node receives several different inputs and the instantaneous heart rate interval and its variation are the results of these inputs.
HRV can be used as a view into the autonomic nervous system, can be used to measure anxiety and stress, and as a biofeedback for self-regulation and improved effectiveness.
