Great! Welltory provides plenty of opportunities for researchers who study both short- and long-term physiological effects of just about anything on the body: meditation, different diets, smoking, and much more.

Welltory measures the state of a user’s nervous system by tracking their heartbeat through the phone’s camera and analyzing it with the help of heart rate variability algorithms. Researchers can use the measurement results to track changes in the user’s nervous system in response to specific stimuli.

For example, say you want to find out how meditation affects people’s stress levels. One way to do this is to have research participants take measurements before and after a meditation session, then compare the results. You could also analyze the effects of meditation over the long-term by looking at how meditating every day for a month affects people’s morning measurement results.
