RESPeRATE is a portable, computerized electronic device that guides you through sessions of interactive, therapeutic breathing powerful enough to lower blood pressure.
Using a breathing sensor, RESPeRATE automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones.
Simply listen to the melody through the headphones and synchronize your breathing to the tones. By prolonging the exhalation tone, RESPeRATE guides you to slow your breathing and reach the “therapeutic zone” of less than 10 breaths per minute.
The physiological result? The muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body dilate and relax. Blood is allowed to flow more freely, and pressure is significantly lowered.
Scientific evidence has shown that structured therapeutic breathing, if performed without an effort or particular concentration, can significantly lower your blood pressure. Effortless therapeutic breathing, however, is difficult to perform on your own without years of training and individualized coaching. That is why RESPeRATE was developed.
To provide effortless therapeutic breathing without any prior training, RESPeRATE uses a patented ‘Interactive Respiratory Pacing’ technology, which ingeniously takes advantage of the body?s natural tendency to follow external rhythms.
And while your breathing returns to normal after each session with RESPeRATE, the beneficial impact on your blood pressure is cumulative. Bottom line: with regular use of RESPeRATE, measurable, sustained reduction in blood pressure is achieved.
