NowZone® as a wearable device is a diagnostic tool. It has an inbuilt sensory module that analyzes the respiration rate of the wearer.
Breath is one of the most vital functions and biomarker of the body. NowZone® uses breath to determine any change in respiration rate and promptly detects respiratory distress. And as a result, along with helping people meditate efficiently, it can be of great help to people with any medical condition and even medical caregivers.
The most accurate way of monitoring respiration is by placing the wearable device directly on the torso. It is the only way to record the correct respiration rate.
Once you have correctly placed your device, you need to connect it with your NowZone® app. The way to do that is to pair your device with your phone with Bluetooth.
After you have synchronized the device with the app, the active analysis of your breathing rate will start.
The device fetches data regarding the rate of your breathing in real-time. In case of an anomaly, it raises an alert through your app.
In some situations, the breathing rate can be extremely high and a cause of concern. In that scenario, the device triggers an alert to concerned health professionals and emergency contacts.
NowZone® device is a robust device that can easily sustain daily wear and tear. But if you happen to break yours or if the device appears to be faulty, you should reach out to us. The device is an unprecedented technology that our technicians are best equipped to handle.
Even though the sensor module in the device is highly perceptive of torso movements, it is best practice to sit straight for the most accurate measurement. Although, the device has been tested to provide near to accurate readings when the wearer is bent and exerting pressure on the device.
Meditation is a journey and not a destination. It is pretty normal to lose focus and even get bored while practicing it. But persistence is the key. Your device is further present to nudge you to focus. When you are meditating, your breaths become slower and softer, which the device reads. And similarly, if your mind wanders, your breathing rate will increase, and the device will notify you of the same. This system will thus help you focus better.
The best time to wear the device is whenever you want to monitor your breath. It can be the case when you feel stressed or uncomfortable and want to check if your respiration rates are not alarming. You might also want to monitor your breaths during meditation, to ensure that you are focusing efficiently.
