The app is crashing – what to do?
• You may have too many apps opened on your iPhone which will always slow down the processing power of your iPhone. Switch off some apps and then restart iTHRVE again.
• Do you have the latest version of iOS? If not, update your iOS.
• Check the compatibility – see above.
• If you’re using the Berry sensor and the app is crashing it’s probably due to poor wifi/internet/bluetooth connection.
What kind of sensors can I use with the iTHRVE apps?
This HRV app has been designed to work with different sensors:
• iOS Camera (on your iPhone or iPad)
• Polar chest strap – Polar H7 chest strap
• Earclip Bluetooth sensor – Mobile Phone Heart Rate Monitor with Ear Clip
• Berry BM1000C (Working with the latest update of iTHRVE apps) This the recommended sensor
PPG Mobile Phone Heart Rate Monitor Finger clip Sensor
All of these sensors can be used for short recording (less than 30 minutes): mainly designed for coherence and breath training.
Long recording (up to 8 hours and a half), can only be done with the use of a Polar chest strap or a compatible Bluetooth chest strap device.
The pressure wave (related to the Mayer wave or Craniosacral wave) can only be displayed with the Berry finger sensor.
The light sensors devices (Berry finger sensor, the earclip sensor and the iOS camera) are very sensitive to movements of the sensor: they need you to be quite still- when used to achieve a good acquisition of data.
Can an MP3 music file located in the same iPhone where the app is installed, be used in conjunction with the app?
Yes, you can play music from your iPhone while using iTHRVE apps.
If so, will the iPhone’s camera be able to take a picture of the HRV measurement?
To take a picture of measurement, you can make screenshots of the screen of your iPhone.
What does iTHRVE Chakra do?
The chakra graph gives the resonance of your heart rate with the frequencies of each chakra. Regarding the size of the bullets, you can get info about which chakra is not activated with your actual heart rate variation. When you sit on a desk, you will activate some chakras, when you walk, you will activate some other when you are relaxing,…, etc when you are stressed, you will activate other, etc. It can also show that with deep slow breath (and good coherence practice), most of the chakras are activated and balanced. The app helps you to understand and visualise it the level of activation of each chakra. Please not that your body is constantly changing depending on the context and environmental factors and the activation of each chakra will change. You can record the session and see, for example, which chakras are active and dominant when you’re meditating. To sum up, the app shows you the levels of activation of each chakra at a given time.
