The Pulse/HR Sensor, also called Blood Volume Pulse Sensor, can be used to measure the relative change in blood flow resulting from contraction of the heart. In other words vasoconstriction and vasodilatation. It uses light-based technology, also known as a PPG (photoplethysmography). Combine with respiration for Heart Rate Variability (HRV) training. BVP is a very efficient way of quickly measuring heart rate and relative bloodflow. For a more precise measurement of heart rate, it is recommended to apply an ECG with the ExG Sensor.
