Biofeedback with eSense Respiration!

Respiration biofeedback at home or to take with iPhone or Android smartphone (biofeedback at home)

The Mindfield eSense Respiration is a sensor (biofeedback devices) useful for measuring respiration. The data is transmitted to your smartphone or tablet through the microphone input. Android and Apple iOS are supported. This enables respiratory biofeedback training, which you can perform independently, comfortably, almost anywhere.

Biofeedback breathing training consists of observing your breath through changing bars, curves, music, sounds, vibrations, light from bulbs, and much more. This gives your consciousness a new perspective on breathing. Self-awareness is trained and a feedback loop is created. With specific exercises in the eSense app, you will learn to breathe calmer, more evenly and deeply, and experience deep relaxation and a new well-being.

The eSense Respiration measures respiration, its rate and amplitude. Optionally, it can also be used simultaneously with the eSense Pulse to train coherence between breathing and heart rate variability (HRV). The eSense application that belongs to all eSense is completely free and included in the purchase price. In addition to many functions, the application also allows the collected measurement data to be exported as a CSV file and a PDF report (for example, via email, Dropbox or Google Drive).

Breathing in general and your training at home or on the go

When breathing, there are 2 main measures, the amplitude of the breath (AR = the amplitude of the breath, how deep you breathe) and the rate of the breath, the breaths per minute. Breathing is special because we can consciously control this parameter. Other typical biofeedback parameters do not have this option, they are vegetatively controlled. This makes biofeedback breathing training a particularly suitable variant of biofeedback training for beginners.

Our mental state is reflected in our breathing. If we are stressed and tense, we usually breathe quickly, irregularly and shallowly. This reflects positive and negative stress. On the other hand, if we are relaxed and calm or if we sleep, our breathing is generally slow, even and deep.

In everyday life we ​​rarely think about our breathing and we breathe almost exclusively unconsciously. If our unconscious breathing patterns are disrupted by chronic stress, pain, or other psychological and physical stress, this often leads to discomfort and maintenance of stress. With breath training you can train and improve your breathing, achieve deep relaxation, and significantly increase your overall well-being. Therefore, breathing plays in almost all relaxation techniques, such as autogenic training, yoga, meditation and progressive muscle relaxation play an important role. With respiratory biofeedback and the eSense Respiration, there is now a modern tool to improve breathing.

When to choose the eSense Respiration

☑ with rapid and shallow breathing

☑ with hyperventilation

☑ if you feel dizzy

☑ to balance the breathing cycle

☑ train for abdominal breathing

General information on breathing and breath training

Our mental state is reflected in our breathing. If we are pleased or tense, generally We breathe faster, more irregularly, and flatter. Positive and negative stress is reflected in in this way. If, on the other hand, we are relaxed and calm or sleepy, our breathing is generally slow, even and deep.

All in all: conscious, slow and deep breathing, preferably in the stomach, leads to a clear relaxation! (stress measurement application) We take advantage of this aspect. Breathing has a special role in biofeedback, as we can consciously control this parameter. In everyday life we ​​rarely think about our breathing and breathe almost exclusively unconsciously. If our unconscious breathing patterns are interrupted by chronic stress, pain, or other psychological or physical stress, this often leads to discomfort and maintenance of stress.

With breath training, you can train and improve your breathing, achieve deep states of relaxation, and significantly increase your overall well-being. reduce stress through biofeedback iPhone and Android smartphone


Therefore, it plays an important role in almost all relaxation techniques such as training, yoga, meditation, and progressive muscle relaxation.

Direct biofeedback of respiration; i.e., real-time feedback of the breathing pattern, depth and frequency helps our awareness to achieve new and better breathing patterns faster and more precisely than without biofeedback. The focus on feedback avoids the frequent deviation of thoughts and loss of concentration in breathing. Many meditation techniques involve observing the breath, which is very difficult for many beginners. Biofeedback of respiration makes this task much easier.

After a learning phase through a few training sessions, respiratory biofeedback leads to a new sense of disconnection and full focus on breathing, increasingly without the need for biofeedback feedback, as better biofeedback develops. self-perception. The chapter "Training sequence" describes the sequence of a respiratory biofeedback training program. Follow this suggestion and develop your own routines and integrate breath training into your daily life, first with and then without biofeedback. The eSense Respiration is a powerful tool to help you breathe better.

Introduction to the eSense Respiration (biofeedback devices at home)

Biofeedback breathing training with eSense Respiration involves observing your breath through bars, curves, music, sounds, vibrations, light from bulbs, and more. This gives your consciousness a new perspective on breathing, self-perception is trained, and a feedback loop is created. But it is also about the change in breathing, towards slower and deeper abdominal breathing, which has many positive effects and can be trained by a breathing target in our app. We combine breath measurement and feedback in the eSense app with guided relaxation exercises, guided breathing exercises, and meditation, giving you a total experience beyond biofeedback. In addition to the wide feedback variants, you can evaluate your measurements with many statistics, document your progress, and export the recordings as CSV and PDF files. Your data belongs only to you! You have full access to the raw data.

Respiration is measured according to the tension measurement principle. With each breath, the space in the chest and abdomen will rise and fall, and the belt that is worn over the clothing will stretch slightly. The eSense Respiration Stretch Belt can be worn around the chest or abdomen. Abdominal breathing is measured and trained more frequently. eSense Respiration has a spring that translates the belt pressure into measurements. The eSense Respiration Sensor is used for transmission to your smartphone and tablet through its microphone input. Our eSense app assesses these signals and displays them comprehensively.

To reduce stress and your vegetative symptoms, biofeedback training can be done by monitoring and reporting your breathing. Often the feedback alone is sufficient without specification, and the user automatically breathes more calmly and evenly.

In addition to this measurement and feedback, it is also possible to specify how the user should breathe. The application includes a respiratory aid for this purpose. A bar, line or sphere changes as you go up or zoom in to symbolize inhalation. A fall of the beam or lines, as well as a contraction of the sphere shows an exhalation. The user follows this pattern when breathing. The breath target is freely adjustable in terms of inhale - hold - exhale - hold. read more
