Hand warming is one of the many different methods used in biofeedback training.  When a person feels stress there is an automatic change that takes place within their body.  Blood flow is significantly decreased in the hands, feet and other extremities while being increased to the vital organs of the body.  This is commonly known as Vasoconstriction and this can lead to pain.  The Thermal Home Trainer is a simple yet effective device to help monitor your stress levels.

The main goal of hand-warming is to assist in measuring our level of stress through skin temperature, and therefore allow us to change those levels.  The Thermal Home Trainer can also help to measure vasodilation; or the increase of blood flow in the body to tissues that need it most.  The more stressed a person is, the lower the temperature in the hands, feet, and other extremities. The lower the stress level, the higher the temperature should be in the extremities.  As a result, using the Thermal Home Trainer combined with a guided imagery CD helps to bring an improved relaxation.

The Thermal Home Trainer provides a specific number value for stress levels that can be compared over time to check improvement and for degrees of reactions to different stressful events. As a result of the large display screen the patient can easily monitor their relaxation response.   It also displays your Stress Level to the nearest 0.10 F. (e.g., 83.5F, 85.6, 90.8) consequently helping with Stress Management, Rehabilitation Education and Counseling.
