Mindfield eSense Skin Response

Biofeedback with the eSense Skin Response!

The Mindfield eSense Skin Response is a small sensor to measure your skin conductance using two electrodes and the microphone input of your smartphone or tablet (Android or Apple iOS.)

Your skin conductance depends directly on your state of relaxation or stress, making it a commonly used and very precise stress indicator. With the eSense Skin Response, you can precisely identify your stress level and reduce it with biofeedback training.
The eSense provides you in various ways with exact feedback about your momentary stress level, e.g. with measurement curves, video display and audio feedback features.The app for eSense is free, and allows exporting the measured data via e-mail.

For the audio features, the eSense has a headphone jack now, so you can additionaly listen to music or audio books while training your stress level down!

Skin Response / Skin Conductance

Skin response, also known as galvanic skin response (GSR), electrodermal response (EDR) or skin conductance (SC) is a method for measuring the skin's electrical conductance, which varies with its moisture level. Conductance is measured in µSiemens (µS) and is the inverse of electrical resistance.

The eSense Skin Response measures skin conductance between two Velcro electrodes attached to two adjacent fingers.  Active measurement involves applying a very low, unnoticeable voltage to the fingers.

Background information on skin response

The perspiratory glands of the skin are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system, making their activity a good indicator for stress and activity. This effect is easily visible through the immediate  increase in skin conductance following a stimulus. Stimulus can be mental or emotional strain, or taking a sudden, deep breath, or a startling action like someone unexpectedly clapping his or her hands. With eSense, you will see the effects easily!

Conscious control of physiological stress can help you to react more relaxed and more efficiently to many situations. Biofeedback is an established way to learn this kind of control.

Reduce your stress level effectively with the eSense Skin Response everywhere with your iOS or Android device!

Using the eSense Skin Response

It's easy!
  1. After buying the eSense Skin Response, please download our free app from the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android). You can download and try the app without the sensor. (The app will deliver meaningless values in this case.)
  2. Connect the electrodes to the pads of your middle and index fingers.
  3. Connect the eSense Skin Response to the microphone input of your device.
  4. Start the App, read the included training instructions and start using your eSense! To get the most precise measurement, work at a relatively constant ambient temperature, breathe calmly (not too deep) and do not move the hand with the electrodes too much.
  5. Have fun!
  6. P.S. You can order more electrodes here, but they will last a while with normal usage.
