How does Welltory measure stress?
Welltory measures stress by using a combination of cutting-edge technology and personalized data. The app uses physiological data, such as heart rate variability, to assess an individual's stress levels and provide a comprehensive view of their physical and mental state. Additionally, Welltory also uses self-reported data, such as mood, energy levels, and stress triggers, to gain a more complete understanding of an individual's stress levels. This combination of physiological and self-reported data allows Welltory to provide a personalized approach to stress management and to accurately track an individual's progress over time.
How are stress and HRV connected
Heart rate variability (HRV) is a measure of the variation in time between successive heartbeats and is considered a reliable indicator of an individual's stress levels. When a person is relaxed, their heart rate variability is high, indicating a healthy and adaptive stress response. On the other hand, when a person is under stress, their heart rate variability decreases, indicating that their stress response has become maladaptive and potentially harmful.
