IHM opened their nonprofit research center in 1991. Since then, their scientists have made contributions in the areas of stress, positive thinking and emotions, and heart-rhythm coherence.
They have an array of tools available that you can check out on their website, from free services like “Assessment Tools” and “Solutions for Stress” to their commercial educational products, like the “Inner Balance” app and the “emWave2”.
Are you a results person like me? Do you need evidence to realize that you need to make a change in your life? If so, you might want to check out one of the following products for yourself:
- emWave Desktop
This product, available for Mac and PC, promises to help you de-stress and rejuvenate. It is a scientifically-validated heart monitoring tool that, in essence, helps you realize what stress and anxiety is doing to your body.
The goal is to create an optimal state within the body in which the heart, mind, and emotions are operating in sync. The emWave allows you to see your heart rhythm patterns in real time, allowing you to see when you are in this “high-performance state”.
A pulse sensor, which attaches to a USB port in your computer, collects your pulse data and translates information into user-friendly graphics on your screen. Through exercises and game play, the tool helps achieve balance of mind and body.
- Inner Balance
This tool is based on emWave technology and is an app that can be downloaded to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (currently not available for Android).
Use Inner Balance for 5 to 10 minutes a day. Plug the sensor into your phone and use the heart rate monitor to discover your personal heart-brain interaction and nervous system dynamics.
The sensor attaches to your earlobe.
This product is IHM’s newest brainchild. It’s the most versatile product of all, because it can be used both at the desktop and on the go.
There are also advanced modes and levels included.
Simply download the data you gained away from your computer onto your laptop or desktop when you return home.
What do these tools cost?
Expect to pay between $99.00 and $189.00 for these products.
