Heart rate variability measurement (HRV)
The heart rate variability measurement shows us how well our vegetative nervous system is set up. our vegetative nervous system roughly speaking, it consists of two parts – the sympathetic (tension) and the parasympathetic (relaxation). The vegetative nervous system is to be regarded as a higher-level control center that controls, regulates, at best keeps in a certain balance about nerve processes and functions in the body – more precisely, our organs and organ systems.
These processes and functions include breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, the immune system, the hormonal system, our sensory organs, and many more. With the heart rate variability measurement, we measure the parasympathetic and sympathetic via the heart and thus obtain a statement about the vegetative nervous system. Heart rate variability measurement measures from heartbeat to heartbeat. Based on different graphical evaluations, the condition of the vegetative nervous system.
One recognizes, for example, in the graphic representations whether the person is in “permanent tension” (sympathicoton), which means that he is exposed to a permanent stress – whether internally or externally – and is not able to react flexibly to it. You could say he’s in a constant stress, a kind of rigidity or inability to act.
Each person reacts differently to stress and feels stress differently. Therefore, one cannot actually make general statements, but tests the human being with the help of the heart rate variability measurement.
72h HRV analysis
Stress. Relaxation. Movement. Sleep
The 72h HRV analysis is a wonderful, non-invasive measurement method to illuminate your everyday life in a more detailed way over a period of three days in terms of topics: stress, relaxation, regeneration, sleep and exercise. All you have to do for this is to wear the small “Bodyguard 2” (see picture below) for these said three days via two electrodes connected to the body.
72h HRV analysis – what is it?
In the 72-hrV analysis, your heart rate variability (HRV) is measured over the said period of 3 days using the small, technical device “Bodyguard 2”. Attached to the body by two electrodes, the little bodyguard continuously records your heart rate.
The heart rate is virtually the time interval between two heartbeats. This distance between two heartbeats is never one and the same, but it varies. The healthier we are, the more variable the distance between heartbeats. If our body is not healthy or under stress, the variability decreases.
Heart rate variability therefore provides information about our health at its core.
