Breathing plays a critical role in the optimal performance be it practising Yoga or participating in a competition. RESPA, the wearable sensor monitors your real-time breathing patterns and alerts you accordingly for optimal performance. RESPA is your companion and lets you stay in optimal breathing zones so that you can practice smarter and better. The sensor is very easy to use and fits in the wide range of clothing like round neck tees, shirts with a collar, sports bras and even helmets. The device features self-tuning microphone and processor, 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer, and barometer and it clings on to the clothing. Just press the button on the sensor and you are ready to go.
The sensor then carefully analyses the breathing pattern through the nose and mouth during a workout. The sensor then compares the breathing patterns to the ideal breathing zones preset for the person for different training. It then transmits this data wirelessly through the Bluetooth to an iOS app/Android paired to the smartphone. RESPA instructs the user with a buzz/ beep sound based on the goal set by him to either increase or decrease the rate of respiration. The users can also check the data in the app to know how whether they met the breathing zone targets during a workout.
