What’s new in Kubios HRV Scientific 4.1

Heart rate (HR) response to deep breathing challenge

Analysis of autonomic nervous system (ANS) function

Detailed analysis for three standard ANS function tests: 1) Valsalva maneuver, 2) deep breathing, and 3) head-up tilt. Supported ANS function metrics include Valsalva ratio, heart rate and RR interval response to deep breathing (HR response, E-I, and E/I), resting HR, and 30:15 ratio for the head-up tilt. In addition various HRV metrics are reported for the deep breathing and head-up tilt challenge. The results can be saved in PDF and CSV formats.

Other new features and improvements

• Account manager. Edit your Kubios user account settings, join teams (if applicable), manage your licenses (activate a new license and view the status of your licenses), and change your password.
• Representation of time. The time displayed in the user interface and reports can be set to either the absolute clock time found in the file (default) or can be set to start from “00:00:00”.
• KDF support updated. Time synchronization between different data channels recorded using the Kubios HRV app and Polar sensors was improved.
• Minor updates to the FIT and custom text file support.
• Update notification feature added, to notify the user when a new release is available.

Introducing Kubios HRV Scientific Lite

Kubios HRV Scientific Lite

Meet Kubios HRV Scientific Lite, formerly known as Kubios HRV Standard!

With this new version, you’ll have access to your Kubios HRV app readiness measurements in case you want to dive deeper into your own HRV. In addition, the new version is compatible with the latest macOS Sonoma.

While the Lite version is perfect to start your HRV exploration, you should understand that it has limited functionality (compared to the full version) and you may use it only for non-commercial purposes. When you’re ready for more powerful HRV analysis, upgrade to the full version – the market’s gold standard.

Start your HRV journey today with the FREE Lite version.
