Ok so PRANA got in touch and asked us to share this idea of their which will certainly help most,myself included for those stressful times. So if you suffer from stress this little gadget might just be able to help,its small and not intrusive. PRANA for me sounds like a good idea and works alongside an app via your mobile via Bluetooth,this will monitor how you breathe and your posture if you are one of those people stuck at an office desk all day this is something to look into.. This idea includes passive tracking and active training which is gamified.
How does PRANA work?
Prana is the first activity tracker to combine three critical body function measures to comprehensively improve the quality of breathing for maximum stress fighting results. These measures are diaphragmatic breathing, posture, and breath patterns. Prana’s advanced algorithms uniquely integrate these measures in a clear actionable way. Our app provides both passive tracking and active training strategies to improve how we breathe. Passive tracking monitors your breathing and posture in the background, occasionally warning you to adjust your breath or body pose. Our active training provides a fully interactive gamified experience to make it easy and fun to retrain breathing for many lasting benefits.
Prana makes it easy to harness the power of good breathing and posture for many healthy benefits. Prana can trigger a relaxation response within two minutes of use. It is a 100% drug free stress relief device.
