In this episode, you will discover:

-The Hanu Health device is primarily a daytime device. Intended to be worn through the day...08:40

-Increase level of self-awareness. Our physiology does not lie. We can try to convince ourselves out of stress, but the body really does keep the score.

-Our device offers real-time training for stress resilience and better self regulation making you more adaptive to stress...11:20

Questions from the Dr.

Question #1: What metrics are you tracking with Hanu and why, and how are you measuring them?...14:55

In my answer, I discuss:

  • Every measurement comes from physiological data
  • HRV, Heart Rate, and movement are the things our device will track.
  • SRS: Stress Resiliency Score is an aggregate score to tell you how resilient you are to stress.
  • We are looking at macro and micro changes in heart rate which are both useful indicators for measuring nervous system functioning.
  • Movement is a key feature. Heart rate naturally responds to movement, so the software is sophisticated enough to capture movement factors as they relate to HRV.
  • Data is always used self-comparatively rather than normative comparisons.
  • HRV measurement is RMSSD for parasympathetic output or vagal flow
  • You will be able to toggle in and out of advanced mode to get some really dense data points on HRV.
  • PPG sensor made by Skosh and Valencell. The most accurate sensor array for all skin tones.

Question #2: What is resonance frequency and how is it assessed and used for training?...25:25

In my answer, I discuss:

  • There is no device on the market right now that measures resonance frequency.
  • Dr. Lair, a Hanu Health advisor, coined the term "resonance frequency" and created the protocol for resonance training.
  • Resonance frequency: The Hanu app takes you through a 12 minute assessment to find your unique resonant frequency rate.
  • The Hanu device will pace you at your own breath rate that will auto populate through your assessment. This customization is awesome.

Question #3: Are there times when it doesn't make sense to measure HRV?...33:25

In my answer, I discuss:

  • The answer is yes; as of now. There is no need for continuous HRV monitoring.
  • Any type of hormetic stress will reduce in a reduction of heart rate variability. Exercise is a hormetic stress, so it's not an ideal time to measure HRV. It's more important to measure HRV pre and post exercise.
  • Take a listen to the podcast I did with Marco Altini on Sports Performance and HRV to learn more about how HRV increases after Zone 2 training. Marco Altini Episode
  • Times of excessive movement are not valuable times for HRV measurement.
  • You have a modified HRV while you eat. It is usually lower, because there is a lot of energy expenditure when you eat.
  • HRV is modified while talking.
  • -Our technology will not penalize you for exercising, eating, or talking (because why should you be?). You can provide the input to the smart application for great HRV data.

The Host

Dr. Jay T. Wiles is an international speaker, scientist, clinician, influencer, and subject-matter expert and authority on the interconnection between the human stress response and health performance/optimization. Dr. Wiles is a clinical health and performance psychologist with board certification in heart rate variability biofeedback and peripheral biofeedback and works as a leading consultant in psychophysiology to health influencers, professional athletes and teams, executives, and high performers. He has pioneered new and innovative means of using heart rate variability (HRV) and respiratory training as both diagnostic indicators of the dynamic nature of the human stress response, alongside therapeutic tools for regulating and conditioning this response for peak human performance.
