The iFeel Labs solution uses biosense games to help asthma and COPD patients improve their breathing and health while playing.
The iFeel Labs biosense solution is an innovative therapy tool that helps users improve their breathing technique and lung function while playing a variety of popular games like Candy Crush. The wearable pulse sensor and mobile app incorporate biofeedback control into interactive games, allowing users to reap a range of health benefits while playing. The sensor tracks users' pulse in real time, while the games challenge and teach them to breathe more effectively using the Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback (HRVB) technique, which is known to improve pulmonary function.
iFeel Labs games essentially challenge players to synchronize their heart with their lungs to improve their breathing. The biosense respiratory solution was developed to help people with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) practice the clinically proven HRVB technique and improve their lung function and autonomic nervous system regulation. The breathing physiotherapy taught by the app helps relax breathing muscles which, in turn, can ease an asthma attack.
iFeel Labs uses FDA/CE/ISO approved sensors to track users' pulse, while the smartphone application engages the users in games that improve their breathing and health. The app guides them through the cardiorespiratory feedback training, telling them exactly when to inhale and exhale, and users can only progress in the game when they are breathing properly.
Developed by a team of Israeli entrepreneurs, engineers, researchers and scientists, iFeel Labs is the only asthma digital therapy tool that combines an FDA/CE approved sensor with mobile games. These games have been converted into biosense games to deliver the necessary health benefits. They have proven their clinical efficacy and do not have any side effects.
The iFeel Labs Match3 app, which hosts a game that uses a biosensor to help asthma and COPD patients learn how to breathe effectively, was recognized at the 2015 MEDICA in Dusseldorf in November, where it was one of the 10 finalists at the international 2015 MEDICA App Competition.
