Handwarming Training

Handwarming training is an especially effective and common biofeedback method. The temperature of our hands is connected to our stress level: When we are stressed, we tend to have cold hands. Immediate feedback enables you to voluntarily increase the skin temperature in your fingers, thus increasing your peripheral blood circulation, leading to relaxation and stress reduction.

The eSense provides you in various ways with exact feedback about your momentary stress level, e.g. with measurement curves, video display and audio feedback features. 

For the audio features, the eSense has a headphone jack now. This means that additional to the auditory feedback you can  listen to music or audio books while training your stress level down! 

We also recommend using the eSense Temperature with the Innovative Finger Clip. This enables a comfortable fixation of the temperature sensor to your finger.

Background Information on Skin Temperature

The skin's surface temperature changes according to blood circulation through body tissue. The small blood vessels (arterioles) crossing through the tissue are surrounded by fibers of smooth muscle controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.

In a state of increased exertion, excitement and stress, these muscle fibers contract and narrow the blood vessels. This leads to a reduction of skin temperature because blood circulation through the tissue is reduced. By contrast, in a resting or calm state, the muscles relax and the blood vessels expand. The skin temperature rises.

Conscious control of physiological stress can help you react more relaxed and more efficiently to many situations. This mechanism can be practiced using the eSense Temperature through conditioning. Detailed instructions are included with the app. 

Skin temperature biofeedback is easy to use and learn. It has a high success rate and brings about a general improvement in wellbeing.

 

Included in Delivery

  • Mindfield® eSense Temperature Sensor

  • One velcro strap for the Sensor

  • Free app from Mindfield via the App Store or Googly Play.

  • Extensive instructions for effective training.

 

Quick Guide to Usage

  • When you buy the eSense skin response you can download our free app from the App Store (Apple®) or Google Play (Android).
    (You can also download it in advance, but the app can not be effectively used without the sensor)
  • Fix the two velcro electrodes around your index- and middle fingers.
  • Combine the eSense Skin Response with the microphone jack of your mobile device, and with the velcro electrodes.
  • Start the app and click "Start", the measurements will begin.
  • Please carefully read the instructions within the app to get the best out of biofeedback training.
  • Have fun with the eSense Skin Response!
  • P.S. You can re-order velcro electrodes in our shop, but they are durable and can be re-used many times.

 

Which iOS Devices are Supported?

  • Apple® iPhone® from 4S
  • Apple® iPad® from 2nd Generation
  • Apple® iPod touch® from 5th Generation
  • Apple® iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (in combination with the included Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter)

 

My eSense does not work with iOS 7 (or higher)

  • The eSense works through the microphone port. From iOS 7 or higher you have to allow explicitly that the eSense app may use the microphone port, otherwise it will not work. You are asked for this during installation, please answer with “Yes” or “Allow”. After installation you can make this setting manually: Allow the eSense app to use the microphone port in the system settings of your iOS device: Settings -> Privacy -> Microphone.

 

Which Android Devices are Supported?

  • Android smartphones and tablets from Android 4.0

    Your Android device requires a 3,5mm jack (headphone jack) for external microphones!

 

Is there a way to extend the cord of the eSense?

  • If you wish to use a longer cord between the eSense and your smartphone or tablet, you can extend the original cord of the eSense with a common, 4-pin, 3,5mm jack headset extension cord. We have tested 3 cords that have worked:
  • 2m cord: http://amzn.to/2kJwqBM
  • 0,5m cord: http://amzn.to/2kKEONs
  • 110cm cord: http://amzn.to/2jJg1LZ
  • All three suggested cords cost between £ 6-8 and are available f.i. from Amazon. Alternatively you should be able to use other 4-pin cords as well.

 

Which alternatives of holding the temperature sensor are available?

  • You can stick the temperature sensor with a Leukosilk (medical tape) to your finger. This saves you holding the sensor with the thumb.
  • Our recommendation: The Innovative Finger Clip. This solution is comfortable and prevents glueing of the sensor and potential heat accumulation.
