The Prana Advantage for Your Research

Prana is a groundbreaking wearable device and mobile app that empowers medical researchers to investigate controlled breathing techniques across many health domains. With real-time sensor tracking, participant adherence tools, and other innovative features, Prana provides valuable insights into the efficacy of these respiratory interventions in both clinical and home-based research settings.

Advancing Respiratory Research and Scientific Understanding

With over 2700 studies on clinicaltrials.gov investigating breathing exercises as interventions for conditions such as COPD, asthma, migraines, anxiety, chronic pain, and high blood pressure, Prana provides a reliable and much needed platform to facilitate and monitor such interventions.

  1. Accurate Data Collection: Prana's advanced sensors and signal processing ensure precise tracking of respiratory patterns as well as posture, enabling researchers to collect accurate, real-time data from study participants as they perform controlled breathing exercises.
  2. Enhancing Participant Adherence: Prana's wearable device and companion app provide haptic and gamified visual guidance, enabling study participants to easily follow specific breathing exercise protocols prescribed by researchers. The platform ensures proper technique and tracks adherence, allowing participants to complete sessions independently, reducing the need for researcher supervision.
  3. Seamless Data Sharing: Participants can easily share their breathing session data, including breath-to-breath compliance, with researchers, enabling remote monitoring and analysis, and facilitating informed decision-making and research outcomes.

Main Features

  • 80+ Scientifically Validated Breathing Exercises included in our platform: all with real-time sensor feedback.
  • Customization: Build your own Custom Breathing Exercise Protocols
  • Two Training Modes: Haptic and Visual
  • Tracking Mode: Monitors passive breathing with stress alerts
  • Versatile Wearability: Prana can be comfortably worn around any part of the trunk, enabling the device to effectively monitor both diaphragmatic and chest breathing patterns, depending on research objectives.
  • Posture Monitoring: Tracks and provides real-time feedback on posture consistency throughout breathing exercises, facilitating the assessment of potential posture-related effects on pulmonary measures such as FEV1, FRC, and FVC.
  • Additional Feature: Body Measurements Alongside its respiratory research capabilities, Prana also tracks 15 key body measurements, including body fat percentage, offering an additional dimension of data collection for researchers interested in exploring potential correlations between breathing exercises and physical health parameters.

Haptic Training

Vibration cues guide breathing. No need to look at a screen.

Visual Training

An interactive, gamified experience for those who prefer visual cues.
