Heart rate variability refers to the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate. Under resting conditions, the ECG of healthy individuals exhibits periodic variation. Heart rate variability - This rhythmic phenomenon, fluctuates with the phase of respiration - cardio-acceleration during inspiration and cardio-deceleration during expiration. Heart rate variability - Predominantly mediated by respiratory gating of parasympathetic efferent activity to the heart.

Reduced heart rate variability has thus been used as a marker of reduced vagal activity. However, because Heart rate variability is a cardiac measure derived from the ECG, it is not possible to distinguish reduced central vagal activity from reduced peripheral activity.

 It is believed that Heart Rate Variability will become as common as pulse, blood pressure or temperature in patient charts in the near future. In the last ten years have been written about heart rate variability. Heart rate variability has been used as a screening tool in many disease processes. Heart rate variability various medical disciplines are looking at heart rate variability. In diabetes and heart disease it has been proven to be predictive of the likelihood of future events. In 1996, a special task force was formed between the US and European Physiological associations to outline current finds on heart rate variability and set specific standards on using heart rate variability in medical science and future practice. Since then a steady stream of new information and value continues to come out of heart rate variability research.

Heart rate variability - It all started in 1966 when a variation in the beat-to-beat intervals between heartbeats was noticed. heart rate variability - Initially all recording devices were averaging heart rate data stream trying to get rid of any rapid heart rate variability. Then there were very specific patterns in such fluctuations were noticed that had links to certain conditions way before any clinical symptoms appeared.

Health assessment - Various kinds of professionals could benefit from using Biocom products specifically designed for research, educational and other types of non-medical purposes. Health assessment - These products provide extremely accurate, detailed and scientifically validated information about regulatory function of the autonomic nervous system as well as powerful tools to improve its performance by means of original patented biofeedback technique.

Health assessment - If that is the case, you may want to check out what options are available to you when it comes to seeking and finding a mental health assessment expert. Through this Biocomtech, you are provided with the guidance that you will need in order to identify those mental health experts who will be of the greatest use and service to you and your clients today.

Heart Rhythm Scanner 3.0 : The main purpose of this product is to conduct comprehensive assessment of the autonomic function by means of doing three different tests and getting conclusion based on each individual test (and possibly their combination).

 * Flexible HRV testing protocols, e.g. single snapshot test, pre/post evaluation, etc.
* unlimited session length,
* unlimited number of test trials.
* detailed report for all trials.

Based on: Full short-term HRV Analysis (during and after the session)

HRV Live! 1.0 - HRV Live! allows to show full dynamics of changes in the regulatory tonus of both the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and autonomic balance over a prolonged period of time. When monitoring, HRV Live! performs a full HRV analysis of the last 5 minutes of data and updates live displays every half a second.

Based on: Continuous real-time short-term HRV Analysis

Inner Balance Scan 2.0 - The Inner Balance Scan Professional Edition provides the means for a quick evaluation of the autonomic nervous system’s regulatory function and uses the cutting edge technology to measure parasympathetic and sympathetic activities and assess the autonomic balance in the body.

* Two testing protocols: single snapshot test and pre/post evaluation
* Simple and intuitive test report. 

Based on: Standard 5-min resting HRV analysis
