Frequently asked questions

Operation of the BreathBalanz 

How does the BreathBalanz work?

The BreathBalanz consists of an 80-day training program that is linked to a sensor with which you can measure your breathing frequency. You keep track of your exercises, progress and measurements in the handy BreathBalanz app.

Does the BreathBalanz work for me?

If you know you have the wrong breathing and there are no medical reasons for this, then the BreathBalanz can certainly work for you.

Has it been (scientifically) tested?

In practice, the BreathBalanz training program has been tested and used for 15 years, with positive results. We are currently working on the scientific validation of the BreathBalanz.

What makes the BreathBalanz special? Why can't I just download an app with breathing exercises?

The BreathBalanz is unique because the training program is linked to your personal breathing measurements. This allows you to map your breathing exactly and make your progress visible and tangible. Because after a few weeks you will notice: you feel better, you are more relaxed and you suffer less from complaints such as stress and tension.

Sensor en Belt

How do I turn on the sensor?

Press the top in the middle of the sensor to connect the sensor to the bluetooth of your smartphone or tablet. While the bluetooth connection is being established, the light flashes blue. The sensor is visible under the name BIB0000115 (115 is the sensor number that you see and therefore different for everyone). As soon as the sensor is connected you will see a green light: it is connected. Now put it back in your belt that you place just above your belly button. Wait quietly for 30 seconds. Do not direct your breath. Then you press start and now it will count back from 60 to 0. Try not to move, and again, don’t try to direct your breathing.

 

What should you do if the sensor does not work or turns blue instead of green?

The sensor flashes in blue when contact is made with a smartphone or tablet. If your sensor does not work, contact us.

 

How do I see that the sensor's battery is empty?

The battery is empty if you do not get a blue flashing light after pressing the sensor.

Does the sensor turn off automatically?

Yes, the sensor turns off automatically if you have not used it for 3 minutes.

How do I wear the belt?

You wear the belt with the sensor about 3 cm above your belly button.

In which sizes can the tire be ordered?

You can order the tire in three sizes:

S = 110 cm / 43 inch

M = 125 cm / 49 inch

L = 150 cm / 59 inch

App with training program

How do I download the app?

The BreathBalanz app can be downloaded from the Apple Store and the Play Store. Please note: you can only use the training program in the app once you have purchased the BreathBalanz. With your purchase you will receive a code with which you can unlock the training program.

Why is it an 80-day training?

It may seem like a long time: an 80-day training program. But you need this to teach yourself a healthy way of breathing. The program consists of 7 periods. During these periods you work towards healthy breathing and you train different respiratory muscles. And after a few weeks you will notice: you feel better, you are more relaxed and you suffer less from complaints such as stress and tension.

Do I have to do all periods on 1 day?

No, each period consists of a different number of days that are consecutive. And every day you do the breathing exercise in the morning and in the evening.

How often do I have to do the exercises?

You practice twice a day: when you wake up in the morning to start the day in a relaxed way and in the evening before you go to sleep to get relaxed.

How do I track my progress?

In the app you see your 80-day exercises, progress and breathing frequency measurements scores and the scores from the symptoms list per week.

EXTRA EXERCISES

Why are there additional exercises in the app?

Maybe you are ready for the next step? Then the extra exercises are there for you. It gives you variation on what you have already learned. You can only do the extra exercises if your breathing pattern is good. Is that not yet the case? Then first complete the 80-day BreathBalanz training.

Can I do the extra exercises at the same time as the 80-day training?

No that is not possible. You can only do the extra exercises if your breathing pattern is good. Is that not yet the case? Then first complete the 80-day BreathBalanz training.

If I hyperventilate, is it better to choose from the extra exercises or for the 80-day exercise?

With hyperventilation you can immediately use the panic button so that you can breathe calmly again. After this it is wise to follow the 80-day training so that the chance of an attack disappears. After the training you can do the extra exercises.
