What is HRV ?
HEART RATE VARIABILITY
Heart rate variability (HRV) is the physiological phenomenon of variation in the time interval between heartbeats. It is measured by the variation in the beat-to-beat interval.
Inner Balance Scanner
Homeostasis Analysis. It shows the body system's natural state of balance, by measuring HRV.
Measurment of HRV (Heart Rate Variability), to obtain a complete overview of the Nervous System's operativity, both for Sympathetic and Parasympathetic functions.
élite's new regeneration and rehabilitation method.
During Homeostasis Analysis the Inner Balance Scanner 2.0 measures your heart rate variability (HRV) and uses it as an indicator of the status of your Homeostasis, also known as inner balance. A sophisticated method of analysis of minute changes of the time intervals between consecutive heartbeats gives reliable and accurate quantitative evaluation of stimulating and calming activity in your body.
Homeostasis Analysis allows you to assess the status of your body's self-regulation system.
The body self-regulation is carried out by a special part of the nervous system that controls all of your vital functions and organs such as your heart, lungs, kidneys, glands, etc. It is called the autonomic nervous system.
Your autonomic nervous system consists of two branches called sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. They both constantly work together trying to compensate the effects of each other. They provide a fine tuned mechanism for the regulation of all of your physiological functions.
The sympathetic nervous system causes stimulating effect on most of your internal organs. For instance, it causes your heart to beat faster and stronger, your lung airways to constrict, and makes your glands creating their products faster.
The parasympathetic nervous system causes calming effect on the same organs. For instance, it causes your heart to beat slower, your lung airways to dilate, and slows production in the glands.
Ideally, these two systems work in perfect harmony, with a very fine tuned balance (also called Homeostasis) that provides long-term stability, endurance, and high adaptation. Various internal and external factors frequently interfere with this balance sometimes causing the sympathetic system to increase its activity to cope with these stressful factors. However, once these factors are overcome the parasympathetic system assumes control and quickly restores the balance.
When various pathological processes take place the autonomic nervous system may have difficulties in maintaining the inner balance in the organism, so each branch may substantially increase or decrease its activity and make it hard to balance the body functions out and revert back to optimal functioning.
