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.

Requires one of the following:

  • Apple iPhone®  (3G and higher)
  • Apple iPad® (first generation and higher)
  • Apple iPod touch® (fourth generation and higher)
  • Android devices (versions 2.3 or higher)

A free app is included to display your skin conductance in multiple ways. You can export the measured data via e-mail

Download the free App on iTunes

  2. Go to the location on your computer where the downloaded file is located (bmi_esense_videos.zip). Right click on the the file and select "Extract All". This will bring up an extraction wizard that will unzip the files in the same location to a folder named bmi_esense-videos.
  3. Next e-mail each of the 5 animations to an e-mail address that you have access for on your mobile device
  4. Open each e-mail and save the file to your mobile device. On iPhones you can save it to the camera roll or other album. Due to some of the file sizes this may work best over Wi-Fi
  5. Next open the eSense app and from the video screen select "custom video". This will bring up your camera roll or other albums that have video available. Select the video you would like to use!

Method 2 - using iTunes

Always be sure to back up your device before syncing.

The below instructions may vary based on the particular version on iTunes you are running, but the general steps should be similar.

  1. Download the free animations file above and save it to your computer
  2. Go to the location on your computer where the bmi_esense_videos.zip file is located. Right click on the the file and select "Extract All". This will bring up an extraction wizard that will unzip the files in the same location to a folder named bmi_esense-videos.
  3. Connect your iPhone/iPad to your computer.
  4. Launch iTunes.
  5. Select your device on the left panel.
  6. Click 'Photos' and check the 'Sync Photos from' box.
  7. Choose the folder where your video is saved. (i.e. My Pictures)
  8. Check the box that says 'Include videos'
  9. Click 'Sync'.

This will place any videos from the synced folder(s) into your camera roll.

After this you can open the eSense app and from the video screen select "custom video". This will bring up your camera roll or other albums that have video available. Select the video you would like to use!

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 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.

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 device!

Make sure that the finger strap isn't covering the metal sensor, and that the sensor is directly touching the skin

  • Measurement at 10 Hz (10 values per second)
  • Five values per second (averaged) are stored in the app and can be exported via e-mail. In the resulting CSV file, five rows represent one second of data
  • Resolution: 18bit, rounded to 2 digits after the decimal point. Not rounded for export to CSV
