Finally! A biofeedback application you can use at home on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad!
Includes healing modules from:

•Sharon Salzberg – Meditation on Loving Kindness

iBiofeedback features several different healing modules (some included in the app and some available as in-app purchases) made especially for this app by musicians, artists, and visionaries in various spiritual traditions to offer you a wide range of choice and to find the best modality that works for you.
How to use iBiofeedback
This app can be used with or without a heart rate measurement sensor. If you do not have a sensor, you are still able to record your heart rate by tapping the app screen. The app will tabulate and record all of your measurements.
First, select any form of healing using the Modules tab. Then, select a particular module. Press the Play button to begin the session with Krishna Das, Francene Hart, Peter Russell, Sharon Salzberg or Tim Wheater.
At any time, you can tap the screen as you take your pulse. It's a good idea to take your pulse in this manner at least at the start and end of the session, but you are free to take your pulse as many time as you wish. iBiofeedback will record the time of each of these, and store them for you to see later.
You have the option to purchase guided meditation, mantra, music, and sacred visuals from several different leaders in the field of wellness. As you use iBioFeedback, you will naturally learn to relax more quickly and spontaneously, lowering your stress level and achieving a higher state of peace.
Each time you do one of the relaxation sessions, your heart rate data for that session is stored as data within the app. This data is shown as a graph on the screen. You can go back later and look at your previous session data and see how you have improved, and see graphs of how your heart rate changes within each module, as well as with different modules.
This visual feedback will help you measure and track your ability to relax and determine which forms of relaxation work best with your heart rate (i.e. like a visual muscle test.)
How to use iBiofeedback with the Fisica Fitness Sensor Key:
We have chosen the Fisica Fitness Sensor Key, by Wahoo Fitness, which is compatible with any ANT+ heart rate monitor, to measure and record heart rate. If you do not have a sensor, you are still able to record your heart rate by tapping the app screen. The app will tabulate and record all of your measurements.
Fisica wirelessly connects your iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 or iPad to your favorite fitness measuring devices, including your heart rate sensor. Now you can measure biofeedback and get real-time activity information all in the palm of your hand... or strapped to your arm!
Excellent data history
I love being able to look at my history with the HR monitor. I even use this sometimes working out, Basic HR module, because it tracks the time and my heart rate during the session and I can view the graph. It is a little harder to track your HR without the monitor but is still possible by tapping the screen with one finger while taking your pulse with the other hand. I like it that I do not have to keep track of how many seconds have gone by while taking my HR, the app just calculates it.
I am using this app to help me relax. I LOVE the meditation modules. I can see the difference in my heart rate after just a few minutes of listening. I haven't bought the sensor (yet) but am getting good results with tapping the screen.
Best biofeedback app!
What incredible technology in an iPhone app! Best app for measuring heart rate and relaxation response! I love the meditation, sound healing and visuals. I highly recommend it for anyone needing a simple and effective stress management tool.
