Flow is a really good product. For example, I am having a bit of cold in this days and I could see that the breathe was different from the days in which I was feeling fit and totally healthy.
The product is a real innovation and it's so cool to see what happens to your breathing during effort.
I was really impressed with the ability to see my breathing rhythm in real time on my phone.
With two FLOW™ sensors (on the chest and abdomen) Njål sees for the first time how he breathes while singing. “When singing I push the contents of my abdomen upwards, and diaphragm downwards to control the pressure and speed of air flow.”
It’s an amazing tool! I use it to help my students create a state of calmness through very easy pranayama (yoga breathing exercises).
The breathing pattern is a visualization of your breathing. It gives a precise visualization of how you breathe in, how you hold your breath and how you breathe out. Breathing measured with one FLOW™ can be shown both on a smart device or screen. Breathing signals from multiple devices can be gathered and shown in the same way. Breathing rate or respiratory rate is also shown.
R&D-stage: We have good tests of using FLOW™ as an instrument to measure your breathing per minute. Usually, at rest, your breathing varies between 6 and 8 liters per minute. During sleep, breathing can be as low as 3 liters per minute and can reach 160 liters per minute and above during high intensity athletic activity.
The measurement of heart rate has been around since its introduction in the early 80's. Seeing how your breathing and heart-rate simultaneously responds to work, stress and recovery, gives vital information on how the body works. FLOW™ has a single channel EKG (256 Hz) that gives unique information in combination with the breath.
The first dedicated breathing sensor: connect it to a screen and visualize breathing. You get access to our SDK so that you can implement it for your use. Or we can help to tailor this for your use.
