Our Story

Resperate Inc. and its parent company 2breathe Technologies Ltd. pioneers the development of digital therapeutic devices, first the RESPeRATE to lower blood pressure naturally and now for sleeplessness. Our original product, RESPeRATE® is the world’s first FDA-cleared, non-drug hypertension treatment device now used by hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide and featured in the American Heart Association statement on non-pharmacological treatments.

The award-winning 2breathe Sleep Inducer was developed after finding that RESPeRATE users reported dozing off during sessions, and over 90% of them reported improved sleep. We decided to turn the “side effect into a feature” and redesigned RESPeRATE real-time coaching guided-breathing technology into a sleek smartphone powered consumer product to help the millions of healthy individuals suffering sleeplessness. 2breathe sleep inducer was awarded the 2017 CES innovation award in the fitness, health and biotech category.

Technology: The Power of Therapeutic Breathing

The cardiovascular and neurological effects of breathing exercises have been known for centuries. In fact, unaided slow breathing is a key element of relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga. However,  unaided breathing techniques require training and concentration. Whether it is counting breaths or focusing of the breathing sensation trying to prolong the exhalation on your own requires conscious “decision making” process which elevates sympathetic nervous system activity and therefore less optimal for lowering blood pressure and/or sleep.

So you basically need a personal coach to lead you to perform the therapeutic breathing exercise subliminally, without any effort.  RESPeRATE technology takes advantage of the human body’s natural tendency to follow external rhythms and a patented interactive “feedforward” concept. The technology composes rhythmic guiding tones, in real time, while measuring the user’s individual respiration pattern. By dynamically manipulating and recalculating these personalized tones it guides users into a Therapeutic Zone, subliminally, with almost no conscious effort on the user’s part leading to unprecedented efficacy, ease-of-use, and compliance.
