In the new iMRS Wellness system, the iMORE, the Interactive Monitoring and Regulation System, uses Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as a bio- feedback loop to automatically adjust the intensity of the iMRS.
This is like putting the iMRS mat on autopilot, as it will intelligently adjust to what the user needs.
Over time, the iMORE technology, in combination with the iMRS applications, is able to train and improve your personal HRV by creating homeostasis in the body. HRV monitors the balance and ability of the Autonomic Nervous System to react to changes in the environment. It’s not a measure of heart rate, but rather the health of the central nervous system of the individual.
The autonomic nervous system is the part of the nervous system responsible for control of the bodily functions not consciously directed, such as breathing, the heartbeat, and digestive processes. It has two primary components:
The parasympathetic system can be described as your REST, DIGEST and HEAL system whereas you sympathetic system is your FIGHT, FLIGHT or FRIGHT system which gets your body ready for stress.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a biomarker of cardiac sympathetic activity. People with high HRV are more stress tolerant and resilient in the face of stressful environmental changes.
