Breath In Balanz

“Breathing seems such a simple process. We take it for granted. Turns out it is really complex, and lots can go wrong”.

Prof. Anne Bruton

Develops a Personalized Feedback System for the treatment and signaling of a dysfunctional (disordered) breathing such as hyperventilation. This Personalized Feedback System can be used both by the practitioner in the practice as by the patient in the home situation to assess and treat on the one hand dysfunctional breathing and on the other hand repair a peaceful natural belly/flank breathing.

This Personalized Coaching Feedback System can be used independently and, if necessary, allows the user to enable a therapist. The care professionals can also offer this instrument with therapy itself.

Yearly 600.000 patients suffer in the Netherlands from dysfunctional (disordered) breathing such as hyperventilation, a part of these end up with a physiotherapist or Cesar therapist, general practitioner or specialist, another part goes to find help themselves. In Europe and the USA this is a population of over 50 million patients of which the healthcare costs exceed 240 billion euro in the meantime.

A dysfunctional breathing  such as hyperventilation is often caused by a.o. stress,  fear and panic, but also with psychological and social non well-being.  This can cause a lot of complaints that are not always recognized and acknowledged in time. Dysfunctional breathing also occurs with COPD and asthmatic patients.
