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 but is generally considered unproven and impractical for treating chronic diseases such as hypertension and/or heart failure.
The patented device-guided breathing technology ingeniously takes advantage of the human body’s natural tendency to follow external rhythms and a patented interactive “feed-forward” 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.
Over a dozen well-designed clinical trials prove that RESPeRATE delivers all-day blood pressure reductions beyond concurrent treatments such as medication, diet, and exercises. The significant results enabled InterCure to win the first FDA-clearance for a hypertension treatment device (510K with clinical trials).
