Pune: Breath AI, a Pune-based deep sci-tech venture, has launched an Artificial Intelligence (AI) – driven wearable technological device made to sense, track, and map the breath and provide pathways to people for a healthy and happy life. The device has been branded as ‘Breath Band’ or ‘BB’.
This Breath Band is a non-invasive technology solution that will help the users to monitor their health parameters pivoted to body, mind, and wellness (BMW) through the most crucial and often ignored element of ‘Breath’. Wearable on the wrist, the device has been designed, prototyped, tested, and validated in India with IP and algorithms that are fully home-grown.
Launching the ‘Breath Band’, Mr Sanjay Phadke said, “We have introduced a wearable device by integrating an ancient science of breathing with the modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) – led technology. This smart wristband creates a bridge between the breath and the mind to track stress, sleep, and the complete profile of the userfor his total health, fitness, and happiness.”
As a wrist wearable, the Breath Band comes with a mobile phone app. The sensors on the wearable and the AI-based algorithms at the back end provide the breath rate (which is the number of breaths per minute) which is displayed on the App along with heart-rate variability continuously. It then shows the statistics and trends of the user’s heart and breath rate, amongst other parameters of physical and mental health. All this data feeds into a recommendation system in the back end that provides guided interventions like breath work and video courses to improve sleep, stress, and happiness scores monitored every day.
