Overview

Virtual Reality (VR) is a technology with increasing applications, including those to benefit health and wellbeing.

In collaboration with Wevr and Jiyo and UC San Diego, the Chopra Foundation is conducting a pilot study examining the effects of a virtual reality meditation journey on mood and heart rate variability (HRV). ECG is being recorded using the Zephyr Wireless BioHarness / BioPatch systems and being examined for potential effects on the time and frequency domains of HRV.
