Company name: InterCure Ltd.

This technology enables a systematic reduction in sympathetic outflow of the autonomic nervous system, one of the key underlying causes of cardiovascular disease, insomnia and several other medical conditions.”
Main product name/s: RESPeRATE – for adult ages.
Product description (in their own words, in their own website): “RESPeRATE is the first medical device clinically to harness the natural power of breathing to lower blood pressure. High blood pressure is generally caused by your blood vessels tightening up and narrowing; this then causes your heart to pump harder. RESPeRATE’s unique breathing exercise relaxes constricted blood vessels to reduce high blood pressure. When you use RESPeRATE, you put on headphones and attach a sensor around your chest. RESPeRATE’s breathing sensor automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones. Simply listen to the melody through the headphones, and your body’s natural tendency to follow external rhythms will enable you to easily synchronize your breathing to the tones. By gradually prolonging the exhalation tone to slow your breathing, RESPeRATE leads you to the therapeutic zone of less than 10 breaths per minute. Within a few minutes, the muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body relax, blood flows more freely, and your blood pressure is significantly reduced.”
