Handwarming training is an especially effective and common biofeedback method. The temperature of our hands is connected to our stress level: When we are stressed, we tend to have cold hands.

The eSense Temperature sensor is attached to your index or middle finger, or held between index finger and thumb. Immediate feedback enables you to voluntarily increase the skin temperature in your fingers, thus increasing your peripheral blood circulation, leading to relaxation and stress reduction.

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 temperature in multiple ways. You can export the measured data via e-mail

The skin's surface temperature changes according to blood circulation through body tissue. The small blood vessels (arterioles) crossing through the tissue are surrounded by fibers of smooth muscle controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.

In a state of increased exertion, excitement and stress, these muscle fibers contract and narrow the blood vessels. This leads to a reduction of skin temperature because blood circulation through the tissue is reduced. By contrast, in a resting or calm state, the muscles relax and the blood vessels expand. The skin temperature rises.

Mental stress often leads to a lower peripheral perfusion and a decrease in skin temperature at the hands. From an evolutionary point of view, this stress reaction serves to prepare us to "fight or flight" in a physically threatening environment because a maximum amount of blood is concentrated in the working muscles.

Conscious control of physiological stress can help you 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 Temperature everywhere with your Android or iOS device!
