Stress Resilience Training System (SRTS) is a self-contained, mobile training program presently available as an iPad application. Its design concept combines: (1) information about the physiology of stress and resilience; (2) engaging training in a set of evidence-based energy self-regulation techniques grounded in Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Coherence (HRVC); and (3) the use of HRVC biofeedback to control a series of progressively more challenging games that are designed to increase the utilization and sustainment of the resilience-building skills. The SRTS integrates with a specially-designed ear sensor which detects a user’s pulse, measures the basic heart rate, and uses HeartMath® algorithms to calculate a numerical HRV Coherence score. A series of efficacy studies involving personnel from the Navy, Air Force, Army and law enforcement prove the system’s relevance in high-stress environments. There is also growing interest among athletes, first responders and caregivers who stand to benefit from the self-regulation of stress energy.
