HRV Measurement (Heart Coherence)
We have come to value the heart rate variability (HRV) measurement, also known as the heart coherence measurement, as a universal indicator of your body's tension and relaxation. HRV (= heart coherence) mirrors the relation between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. For we have observed changes in the ability of your heart rate to oscillate in the presence of both particular physical diseases and psychologically induced responses of your body such as negative stress (so-called distress) and burnout. When your sympathetic nervous system dominates, your pulse becomes rigid, whereas in a state of relaxation, i.e. your parasympathetic nervous system becomes activated, your pulse becomes more flexible and thereby more harmonious.
We determine your heart rate variability (HRV) with an HRV scanner, which is both an HRV measuring station and a biofeedback system. This way we are able to conduct all standard HRV tests, e.g. RSA test (rhythmic breathing, deep breathing test), short-term HRV, Ewing and orthostatic tests, and long-term measurements. The HRV biofeedback system enables us to design a 3D animated biofeedback, or using the real-time spectral analysis we can make an online spectrum.
The evaluation includes not only an automated quality assessment but also extensive post-production possibilities. Informative diagrams and illustrations as well as a variety of parameters (for the most important of which there are standard values listed) enable us to make a quick and meaningful interpretation of the results. An extensive reporting system creates easily understandable reports for both doctor and patient.
