With Autonomic Systems’ HRV wearable products users can monitor their physiological condition in real time. Real time monitoring enables the early detection of autonomic stress, and, by providing the ability to monitor HRV at the same time as activity level, heart rate, respiration, and other pre-specified conditions and parameters, enables the detection of episodic events. Such determinations can provide unique relations between HRV and an event occurrence, differentiating these detection separately from other activities.
