Use eSense Pulse to measure your heartbeat over Bluetooth!
Mindfield's eSense Pulse is a compact sensor that can measure the heartbeat (heart rate variability) on a smartphone or tablet's Bluethooth (Android and Apple iOS).The measurement of the heartbeat is a stress indicator, as the heartbeat depends on the onset and relaxation of the heart muscle. With the eSense Pulse you can determine your stress level and effectively counteract it with the help of a biofeedback training.
In combination with the new eSense Respiration Sensor the respiratory rhythm can be measured in addition to the heart variability. For the evaluation of the data Mindfield offers a free app, which allows the export of the entire measurement data as CSV file and PDF report (eg via e-mail, Dropbox or Google Drive).
Breath and heartbeat are life. Now click on "Add to basket" to complete the purchase and improve your life.
Heart rate variability and biofeedback
The ability of the organism to change the heart rate, ie the frequency of the heart rhythm, is called cardiac variability (HRV).
The more adaptive the organism is to regulating the frequency of the heartbeat (the greater the heart rate variability), the healthier the human. If the heart beats stiffly, a person is about to die.
Measurement of heart rate variability plays a major role in cardiology, competitive sports and coaching.
Improving cardiac variability through targeted biofeedback training is at the forefront. To capture the current state and progress of a workout, the eSense app provides the essential statistics and analysis of the HRV.
Who is the eSense for?
For home users
For professional users such as Biofeedback Trainer or Therapist
Click on "Add to basket" to get your own Biofeedback Trainer at home.
By purchasing the eSense Pulse, you can download our free app from the App Store (Apple®), Google Play (Android) or the Amazon AppStore. (You can do that before, but the app does not show meaningful values without a sensor)
Put on the chest strap. The belt should be tight, just under your pectoral muscles, but not uncomfortably tight or tight.
After adjusting the strap, take it off again to apply a small amount of spray from the enclosed Electrode Contact Spray to the left and right electrodes (but avoid bridging as described in the manual
Start the app and click on "Start", the measurement starts.
Read the detailed instructions within the app or manual to get a good biofeedback training.
Enjoy the eSense Pulse!
Mindfield's eSense app
For the eSense, you can download the Mindfield eSense App for free from the Google Play Store (Android), the Apple App Store (iOS), or the Amazon App Store. It offers a variety of extensive features for effective biofeedback training in a modern design. The main functions include the display of measured values as a bargraph and oscilloscope, a feedback via video, music, sound, vibration and NEW: light via Bluetooth light bulb.
The eSense Pulse with the eSense app gives you
A precise 1-lead ECG with a sampling (internal) of 500 Hz
Transmission of RR distances in milliseconds at 5 Hz via Bluetooth Low-Energy
Comprehensive heart rate variability statistics (time and frequency data)
Real-time fast Fourier analysis with spectrogram
Respiratory aid for breathing training with freely adjustable intervals, auxiliary sounds and more
Export of measurement data as a CSV file, compatible with other software programs for further analysis (eg Kubios)
Export curves, charts, and statistics as a PDF report
To improve the HRV through biofeedback training, the app offers a variety of HRV amplitudes and feedbacks, such as: Bar Graph Feedback (HRV or Respiratory Aid), Curve Feedback (HRV and Respiratory Aid), Video Feedback ( included videos and own videos can be used), music feedback (music included and your own music can be used), sound feedback (pitch change by measured values), tactile feedback through vibration (only smartphones, tablets can not vibrate), Feedback from smart incandescent (Magic Blue® and Phillips Hue® smart light bulbs are controllable)
Any number of markers can be specified during a recording
A variety of ready-made training methods are already included in the free app
Free training according to your wishes with one or more biofeedback variants
Extensive in-app help and manuals available
There are regular updates of the app
Integrate a true breath sensor to capture respiration during HRV measurement (new sensor: eSense Respiration, 1st quarter 2019)
The eSense App
The price of the eSense consists partly of the hardware and on the other, not insignificant part of the software, the eSense App, together. In the programming and constant development of the app flow larger sums from the sales of the eSense. However, the eSense app is available for free in the app stores, so our customers do not pay in two places and besides, it is unfamiliar for most people to pay more for an app. The eSense offers unbeatable value for money and is a unique, high-precision biofeedback device with a wealth of features.
A procedure consists of differently composed modules. The procedures can thus be used e.g. Instructions for relaxation, a stress test, a defined biofeedback training session or tasks for research purposes. The possibilities are manifold.
During a procedure, of course, your pulse is measured. After a procedure has been completed, a summary is displayed where, for each module and overall overview, your measurements are displayed.
New: Smart Bulbs
The eSense app supports biofeedback via smart bulbs. Smart bulbs can change their colors and brightness and be controlled via Bluetooth. This, in combination with the eSense app, allows you to use the light of the Smart Bulbs as an indicator of your stress or relaxation level.
The app supports the Magic Blue® and Phillips Hue® Smart Bulbs. From the eSense app you can connect the Magic Blue and use it in your biofeedback exercises.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which app do I need and where can I download it?
You need the eSense Universal App, which is free and available for Android and iOS (in the AppStore and Google PlayStore).
The app does not find the eSense Pulse
Make sure your device has not only Bluetooth but also GPS or location detection enabled. We will NOT determine your location. It is a mandatory requirement of Google / Android that GPS must also be active when using Bluetooth. We can not change that, we have to accept it. No GPS data is used by our eSense app.
If you have problems connecting to the eSense Pulse, please check that the eSense Pulse is NOT paired with Android / iOS Bluetooth settings. This must not be. Otherwise it can no longer be connected in the eSense app. If necessary, remove the coupling there. The connection between eSense Pulse and your smartphone / tablet is made exclusively within the eSense app. For this purpose, as mentioned in 1. called just basically Bluetooth and GPS enabled and the eSense App have received the requested authorization to use these two functions. The query for use comes at the first start of the app and must be answered in the affirmative.
If, despite everything, the eSense Pulse can not be found in the settings of the eSense App, please check the battery. Reseat the eSense Pulse once by removing the battery, attach the eSense Pulse to the chest strap WITHOUT battery, and remove it again. This will trigger the reset. Then please reinsert the battery or if necessary connect a new battery and again with the chest strap. Then try reconnecting the eSense Pulse in the settings of the eSense app.
Be sure to use the electrode contact spray properly! In case of bad contact no connection can be made.
Which iOS devices are supported?
