eSense Skin Response
Preparation and start of the app
Create the conditions needed for a successful training:
- find a quiet room (mobile phone etc. switched off)
- appropriate temperature of 20-22° C (68-72° F)
- convenient seating
- comfortable clothing
As skin temperature depends also on ambient temperature, you should try to perform each training session under similar ambient conditions.
You should get accustomed to the ambient temperature for at least five minutes (acclimatization), letting the training start while your body is in a relaxed and constant state. This phase of acclimatization can already raise your hand temperature by several degrees.
In comparison with other biofeedback techniques, you will need fewer sessions for a reliable success. 6-10 sessions should be sufficient. To keep focused throughout the entire session, you should limit each session’s length to about 30 minutes. If you start feeling tired while training, you should shorten your sessions and practice more often instead.
Fixation of the sensor
Use the accompanying tape (or a fabric tape of your choice, e.g. Leukoplast™) to attach the temperature sensor to your index or middle finger. Plastic tape works as well, although it’s less comfortable because it’s airtight and can make your fingers perspire.
The next step is to start the app. At the beginning you can choose between a free training and a procedure. We recommend that you start with a procedure. We present you both below.
