A HEALTHY NERVOUS SYSTEM RESPONDS TO THE DEMANDS OF EVERYDAY LIFE
by engaging the body in a variety of ways. A few easy examples of this are increased heart rate, quickening of the breath, and the release of hormones, like cortisol, that stimulate motivation and energy levels. This positive stress reaction pushes the individual body to persevere through the moment or task at hand. After the event or experience has passed, the body’s systems relax to recuperate and conserve resources.
WHEN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM IS OUT OF BALANCE
the stress reaction can persist and become unhealthy. This negative stress manifests itself as persistent elevated heart and respiration rate, as well as sweaty palms, cold hands, inability to calm or focus one-self, and difficulty sleeping. The insidious effects of long-term stress hamper the body’s health and ability to recover, leading to anxiety, depression, insomnia, heart disease, weight gain, poor performance and problems with memory and concentration. These psychophysiological disorders know no bounds; they can affect anyone: child, parent, senior, student, professional, veteran, athlete.
HELP YOUR CLIENTS HELP THEMSELVES
Regardless of what type of clientele you treat in your practice, your goal is to give them the tools to better cope with the stressful demands of their lives. A challenge of any strategy or therapy is its effectiveness outside of the clinic: how can you be sure they’re correctly following your guidance? Encouraging a balanced and healthy nervous system against the effects of persistent stress requires a successful method for generalizing the therapy. The eVu-TPS is the tool that helps clients help themselves, by providing the framework to achieve such clinical progress in the real world.

eVu Senz is the first in a line of medical apps that promises to revolutionize at-home clinical training with smartphones and tablets. eVu Senz automatically records psychophysiological data and provides three feedback modes – graphical, music and reward points – encouraging users to increase their relaxation response as they follow a breath pacer. The app organizes training into a 10-session program, where performance is scored and compared to a program goal. Training data is saved and reports can be emailed to both users and clinicians, rendering progress and compliance easy to track.
Len McEwen, MSW RSW
The TPS is a great tool for me and my clients as it allows me to check 2 things; compliance and progress. Compliance is important to me as I need to increase motivation if it is lacking just to make sure that the client is effective in his/her therapy. Without the reports, it becomes difficult to do that. Progress tracking allows me to correct errors in implementation and to see that the client is improving. I can then work with the client in the room to alter any poor implementation issues or to check on the clients perceptions of change. - Len McEwen, MSW RSW | Social worker

It’s the first device that I’ve seen that integrated three different physiological signals into one training device, with nice feedback that a lay person can follow. I’m excited - I look forward to using it with students and patients in the future. - Don Moss, Ph.D | Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Health Sciences, Saybrook University
Fred Shaffer, Ph.D
To the best of my knowledge, there is no comparable product either in terms of accuracy or the number of modalities that are monitored that are available in this market niche. I am excited about its potential for increasing the power of what clinicians and optimal performance coaches can achieve with the client. - Fred Shaffer, Ph.D | Professor of Psychology
The TPS from Thought Technology has allowed me to monitor and follow my activities in preparation of the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016. - Heena Sidhu | Olympic Athlete
