The heart rate variability (HRV) measuring device monitors the physiological components and shows the connection between lifestyle and well-being. Using personalized stress and recovery profiles, your employees and yourself can learn how to deal with stress and feel more comfortable by selecting exactly those activities that have a positive impact on their work, leisure and life as a whole. At the end of the measurement you will receive your individual daily report.The device is so small that it can be worn both during sports (except swimming) and in everyday life/sleep and is not a disruptive component.
But what is HRV and how does the measurement work?
Heart rate variability (HRV) refers to the temporal variations between heart beats.
It is generally recognised as a marker of the activity of the autonomic nervous system.
HRV can be influenced by a number of physiological phenomena:
- Inhalation and exhalation, respiratory control
- Adaptations of the vegetative nervous system (VNS)
- Hormonal responses
- Metabolic processes and energy consumption
- Physical activity, sport and recovery from physical activity
- Movements and changes of posture
- Cognitive processes and psychological stress
- Stress reactions, relaxation and emotional reactions
