Yair Lurie, Welladapt, Inc., founder, will give a talk on the use of mobile heart rate variability (HRV) biofeedback to reduce blood pressure at the 42nd annual Western Association for Biofeedback and Neuroscience’s (WABN) conference on Nov. 5, 2017.
WellAdapt is a digital therapeutic startup that focuses on increasing wellness and reducing the risks associated with hypertension in the workplace. Cardiowell, a mobile application developed by Welladapt, is the first product from the company that tracks blood pressure, health and wellness to help lower blood pressure and predict sickness. The talk will cover the link between stress, emotions, and hypertension and explain how mobile health technologies can help manage a variety of chronic diseases.
Welladapt works in part by increasing mindfulness helps with. Yair Lurie said in an interview that “by continuously monitoring a person's heart rate variability, we can increase awareness of events that raise blood pressure. Coupled with mindful nudges, we help users adapt to such events using mindful breathing exercises. Cardiowell helps in part by helping to normalize a user’s breathing patterns and reducing stress on the cardiovascular system. Over time, we hope to reduce a person's dependence on medications.”
