BASIC INDEXES

The physical stress index is based on your heart rate variability. It shows you the percentage of your currently available energy. This is the index measured by apps like StressCheck or sHealth. The concentration index shows you, how well you are able to concentrate on your current activity. The relaxation index tells you, how well you are currently able to relax.

MEASURING METHODS

  1. USING OXIMETERStressLocator How to mesure EN
    Just insert your finger and press the button on top of the device. Before starting the app you have to pair the oximeter with your device (see in the video). The measuring is extremely precise, without complications associated with using the lens of your mobile device (lens temperature, keeping your finger still).
  2. USING CAMERA LENS
    Just put your finger on the lens of your devices camera. Using this method will give you less precise results. Devices equipped with a strong flash may get hot. We recommend using the oximeter.

 

HEART RATE AND SPO2

Lower heart rate is common for athletes with trained hearts. SpO2 displays the percentage of oxygenation of blood in your body. The value is individual and can be as low as 80%, depending on your previous physical activity.

StressLocator Heart Rate VariabilityHEART RATE VARIABILITY

Heart rate variability displays variability between individual heartbeats. The higher the variability, the better the physical condition of your body is. If the variability is low, your organism is tired.

Applications for StressLocator

StressLocator Pro

STRESSLOCATOR FREE & PRO

The app is available in two versions. StressLocator Free is available for download freely on Google Play and allows you to try our app and its functions, including biofeedback. However, some functions are limited. StressLocator Pro is a paid version, which brings you several advantages – it gives you access to the expert mode with graphs and precisely measured data, instead of just a simplified description of your mental state. You can view your previous results and compare them. When using biofeedback to enhance your mental state, you are not limited by time, so you can achieve much better results.

SAVE ASTRONAUTS

The game doesn’t offer only fun, but it can help you to rech better result in self-controling as well.

How to train concentration and relaxation

StressLocator measurementCHOOSING RELAXATION OR CONCENTRATION

Here you can choose whether you want to enhance your concentration or your relaxation levels. Just slide your finger over the slider. Everything depends on your current needs. Your selection changes the rate of breathing from slower (for concentration) to faster (for relaxation).

METRONOME PHASES (COLOURFUL BREATHOMETER)

Enhancing your concentration and relaxation levels happens through controlled breathing. For that, use the colourful metronome (the round indicator in the app), which grows and shrinks. As the indicator grows, breathe in. As the indicator shrinks, breathe out. The two phases are separated with a sound. You can change the sound volume, depending on your preferences.

 

Heart Rate Variability Spectrum (HRV) 

StressLocator HRV power spectral densityHRV graph is designed for therapists and expert users, it displays the power spectral density of your heart rate variability. You can compare how active is your sympaticus and parasympaticus, displayed as harmonic sinusoid waves.

The sympaticus is responsible for activities that prepare your body for an immediate reaction (act, fight, flight…). If sympaticus prevails in the graph, your organism is prepared to immediately react (conscious concentration). Your heart beats faster, your blood flows faster and your organism is ready for immediate changes. The parasympaticus affects activities connected with rest and replenishing energy. Your body concentrates on regeneration. If parasympaticus prevails in the graph, your body is relaxing and isn’t prepared for challenging activities.

Fun with results

We thought it might be interesting to share results and find out where the stress levels are highest, and where they are lowest. You can compare results on the level of cities, or worldwide. We are curious about your results and where in the world is the best place to live. Whe hope that you are too! Check out our map at http://www.stress-locator.com/maps.

Are you competitive? You can easily get into the world Top 10 ranking.:) Try the breathing exercises, enhance your mental state and your relaxation and concentration levels. You can repeat the exercises as many times as you want. The world Top 10 ranking can be found under the button “Contest” in your app. Good luck!

“This was actually able to get your heart rate from your finger trough camera on my S3. Other app was not able to do this. There is quite lot of features in this as well. Breathing exercise was cool. I liked also the free version, but I liked to have more features and support developers as well because I think we should have more good quality health apps :)”
