The Mindfield eSense Skin Response is a small sensor to measure your skin conductance using two electrodes and the microphone input of your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices.
Your skin conductance depends directly on your state of relaxation or stress, making it a commonly used and very precise stress indicator. With the eSense Skin Response, you can identify your stress level and learn to reduce it with biofeedback training.
The eSense provides you with exact feedback about your moment-to-moment stress levels, using dynamic charts, video displays, and audio feedback.
eSense now has a headphone jack, so you can listen to music or audiobooks while training your stress level down!
How Does eSense Skin Response Work?
Skin response, also known as galvanic skin response (GSR), electrodermal response (EDR) or skin conductance (SC) is a method for measuring your skin’s electrical conductance, which varies with its moisture level. Conductance is measured in µSiemens (µS) and is the inverse of electrical resistance.
The eSense Skin Response measures skin conductance between two electrodes attached to your index and middle fingers. Active measurement involves applying a very low, unnoticeable voltage to your fingers.
The perspiratory glands of your skin are controlled by your sympathetic nervous system, making their activity a good indicator for stress and activity. This effect is easily visible through the immediate increase in skin conductance following a stimulus. Stimulus can be mental or emotional strain or taking a sudden, deep breath, or a startling action like someone unexpectedly clapping his or her hands. With eSense, you will see the effects easily!
Conscious control of physiological stress can help you to react more relaxed and more efficiently to many situations. Biofeedback is an established way to learn this kind of control.
Reduce your stress level effectively with the eSense Skin Response everywhere with your iOS, Android, or Amazon device!
