Helicor StressEraser: Brain Training Product Review Survey

As part of our ongo­ing mar­ket research we’d like to ask past and cur­rent users of Helicor prod­ucts to share their expe­ri­ence with us via this 3-question anony­mous sur­vey.  Please take this sur­vey if you have used a Helicor prod­uct your­self or have seen some­one else use it.

Take this 3-question Survey

Please note that we do not endorse this prod­uct (or any other) or any of the claims below. We inde­pen­dently track and ana­lyze emerg­ing brain/ cog­ni­tive sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy and inno­va­tion, and their real-world appli­ca­tions. This sur­vey helps us learn more about the latter.

Com­pany name: Helicor Inc.

Com­pany descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “Helicor, Inc. offers StressEraser, a portable medical device that relaxes the body and calms the mind. The company was formerly known as Helicore, Inc. Helicor, Inc. was incorporated in 2003 and is based in New York, New York.”

Main prod­uct name/s: Stress Eraser – for all ages.

Prod­uct descrip­tion (in their own words, in their own web­site): “The StressEraser is state-of-the-art medical technology – portable, drug-free and non-invasive. The premise behind StressEraser stress relief is simple and has been used in practice by physicians, psychologists and meditation experts for more than three decades. We all know that slowing down your breathing can slow down your heart rate and help you relax. The StressEraser cues you to not only slow your breathing but, just as importantly, to synchronize your inhales and exhales with the natural cycle of your heart rate. Here’s how it works:

From beat to beat, your heart rate naturally increases and decreases in a cycle, known as HRV, or Heart Rate Variability. Using a harmless infrared sensor, the StressEraser measures HRV from the pulse in your fingertip. The StressEraser Breathwave® actually displays the time between your heart beats – known as the inter-beat interval.

HRV is considered to be the most accurate, non-invasive measurement of your nervous system activity. HRV biofeedback is clinically proven in decades of peer-reviewed research to promote stress relief and relaxation training.

The StressEraser Breathwave is like a window into your nervous system. When you’re stressed, your wave is jagged and spiky; when you’re relaxed, your wave becomes smooth and consistent, like a sine wave. StressEraser HRV is so accurate that you can actually see the impact of your inhales, your exhales and your thoughts on your heart rate cycle.

That’s because the wave reflects the activity of your vagus nerve, which extends from your brain to your heart and branches out to your major organs. The vagus nerve is the primary nerve in your parasympathetic system, which activates your body’s natural relaxation response. Because the vagus nerve is governed by your brain, distracting thoughts actually appear as a “break” in your StressEraser wave.”
