Product Description

Introducing RESPeRATE, the interactive breathing device used by thousands of men and woman nationwide to gain control over high blood pressure. Used for just 15 minutes a few times a week, RESPeRATE delivers a significant all-day blood pressure reduction.

The Power to Lower Blood Pressure
RESPeRATE is a portable, computerized electronic device that guides you through sessions of interactive, therapeutic breathing powerful enough to lower blood pressure.

Proven in Seven Clinical Trials
Step 1: The respiration sensor monitors your breathing.

Step 2: The RESPeRATE computerized unit composes a personalized melody with prolonged inhale and exhale guiding tones.

Step 3: Simply listen to the melody through the headphones and synchronize your breathing.

By prolonging the exhalation tone RESPeRATE guides you to slow your breathing and reach the "therapeutic zone" of less than 10 breaths per minute.

Using a breathing sensor, RESPeRATE automatically analyzes your individual breathing pattern and creates a personalized melody composed of two distinct inhale and exhale guiding tones, delivered through comfortable earphones.

Simply listen to the melody through the headphones and synchronize your breathing to the tones. By prolonging the exhalation tone RESPeRATE guides you to slow your breathing and reach the "therapeutic zone" of less than 10 breaths per minute.

The physiological result? The muscles surrounding the small blood vessels in your body dilate, and relax. Blood is allowed to flow more freely, and pressure is directly, significantly lowered.

Breathing with RESPeRATE makes the difference
Scientific evidence has shown that structured therapeutic breathing, if performed without an effort or particular concentration, can significantly lower your blood pressure. However, these effortless therapeutic breathing sessions are difficult to perform on your own without years of training or continuous, individualized coaching. That is why RESPeRATE was developed.

To deliver effortless therapeutic breathing without any prior training, RESPeRATE utilizes a patented "Interactive Respiratory Pacing" technology, which ingeniously takes advantage of the body's natural tendency to follow external rhythms.

Three Easy Steps
Within 3 to 4 weeks of use, a significant, all day reduction in blood pressure can be achieved.
And while your breathing returns to normal after each session with RESPeRATE, the beneficial impact on your blood pressure is cumulative. Bottom line: with regular use of RESPeRATE, measurable, sustained reduction in blood pressure is achieved.

Who Should Use RESPeRATE
Whether you are already taking anti-hypertension medication or still trying to lower blood pressure with diet and exercise, RESPeRATE might just be the tool you need.

Seven clinical trials repeatedly found RESPeRATE to be safe and effective for people with high blood pressure, either medicated or unmedicated, male or female, younger and older.

One particular study, published in American Journal of Hypertension, even found that RESPeRATE delivered significant blood pressure reductions for people who had uncontrolled blood pressure despite taking three or more medications at maximum dosage.

Customer Reviews:

  • Not bad,
    Basically a relaxation feedback device. I started with a breathing rate of 18/minute, over the first session I lowered that to 4/minute. 2nd I started at 10 and went to 3. I'm hovering about there now while on the machine. Not sure what it's doing for my blood pressure yet but it's certainly relaxing....more info
  • control of labile BP, updated
    After being in acute renal failure I was on 5 different anti-hypertensive meds to try and control my fluctuating BP, none of which was able to get it regulated. My doctor recommended trying the resperate and getting off the lotrel and using cozaar, which is renal friendly and has virtually no side effects. Within 4 weeks my systolic BP was in the 115 to 125 range instead of 165 to 185. I am so grateful for this machine. The musical tones make me feel as if I am in the company of angels, it is so relaxing. It has now been 8 weeks and my BP has been completely stable. It is FDA approved for use to lower BP. It works without any other changes in your normal routine. Update: August 2006, It has now been over a year of faithfully using the resperate. I did have to change from cozaar to atacand because of an elevated renin level but that was last Fall and my nephrologist is very pleased with the stability of my BP. Not only has this machine helped with my hypertension but I also get hardly any colds, which was always a problem for me. My doctor says it is because I am so relaxed using the resperate. I still highly recommend this product....more info
  • RespeRate Review
    I purchased this item at the end of December of 07. I have used it almost every day since for 15 minutes. Blood pressure has dropped by 15-20 points on the high side and about the same on the low. I have also cut my blood pressure medication in half. Before using this I was having trouble controling blood pressure. You have to use it regularly to get results. ...more info
  • You may have a lot of trouble sticking with this product
    While some reviewers appear to enjoy using this product and get good results, I wanted to balance these positive reviews with my own experience.

    In my case, I tried using this for a couple of weeks, but the 15 minutes that you are supposed to use it came to seem like an eternity of boredom. I would sometimes check the time thinking that 15 minutes were up, but find I was only 3 minutes into the routine. You listen to a very repetitive tone sequence, which I found soon grated on my nerves. I doubt that it would help my blood pressure once I found it so annoying. It would probably be much better to just relax and listen to music that I enjoyed. In fact, the clinical studies of this device showed that listening to music (the control condition) accomplished a substantial fraction of the reduction of using this device.

    So, this does seem to work for some, but you can probably judge your own personality as to whether you could enjoy listening to a repetitive tone sequence 3 times a week for the rest of your life.

    I am giving this only 1 star as it cost a lot to find out this didn't work for me and there was no return policy after one month.

  • Great product to reduce stress as well
    I have been using Resperate for 2 weeks and when I use it my BP falls anywhere from 20-40 points. I use it 2-3 times each day faithfully. That is key to good success with Resperate. You must use it every day for best effects.
    It also is great for reducing stress. I feel much better physically after using it.
    Ask your MD if it is for you. You should use it as part of an overall program to reduce BP: lifestyle modification, diet, exercise, stopping smoking, etc... It should not be the only thing you use.
    **** Here is a helpful hint. Make a recording of one of your sessions. That way if the machine breaks you can still do the treatments. You will need a few things to get a good recording. A line in connection to take from headphones out (on Resperate) to input on computer. You will also need a headphones line splitter (so you can hear the tones on one line while the other goes into the computer, and then recording software. I use audacity which is a free download [..]
    The cables cost about 20 bucks, but it is worth it to have a back up copy of the recordings. Then when all is connected, just sit back and do a session of Resperate and record it on your computer. Then burn a cd and you have a copy should anything happen to your resperate unit.

    Hope this helps!
    For me it has been well worth the cost....more info
  • Impressive results on Day 1
    Just got this today, so this review won't be about the long term results, but rather what happened the first time I used the product. (I'll update after I've used it for 6 weeks).

    Anyway, I've been averaging probably 125/85 up to 135/100, depending on my stress level. My doctor has had me tracking my BP for the last month. Before going on medication, I wanted to try this. Tonight, I took my BP before trying it... 125/85. After using Resperate for 15 minutes, I felt very relaxed. Walked back into the living room and sat down, then took my BP and was surprised to see it at 107/75.

    I just checked it now, 1.5 hours later and it's 118/82. So, we'll see what the effect is after a few weeks of repeated use. But on Day 1, I'm impressed....more info
  • Not bad
    This product does relax you so it would lower your pressure to a point. I used it a bunch of times and it teaches you to relax. You wont believe how unrelaxed you really are until you use this. I would recommend this to help lowere your pressure....more info
  • Lowering your blood pressure
    The Resperate machine does what is advertised - my blood pressure has been going up and down for a few months now. In desperation, after having my blood pressure medications changed one after the other, with no appreciable affect, I decided to try the Resperate machine. After one month my blood pressure is stabilized. Resperate is easy to use, is very relaxing, and takes only 15 minutes. I would encourage others with fluctuating blood pressure to try it....

  • Problems with Resperate
    I wish that I had read the reviews here at Amazon before I spent the money on a Resperate Machine.

    This machine is the biggest waste of money I've seen in a long time. The company would not give me the free shipping promised in the newspaper ad so I ordered from Amazon.

    I complained about the limited 30-day warranty but was told it would ONLY take 3 - 4 weeks to see any results. Since I have many problems with most BP meds, I was dreaming that this might actually help!

    My spouse & I tried it for a month with NO results & left on vacation [no time to send it back]. When we got back we tried it for another month -- my BP went down slightly, his actually went UP.

    I asked the company about that and also about whether we had to use this thing for ever. I never got a reply.

    I repeated the questions on their forum -- still no answers.

    I found this exercise exhausting, frustrating, & boring because the stupid thing does NOT breathe WITH me [now my BP is UP too], and I cannot possibly breathe as it directs me [panting like a dog!]. My husband complains about the same thing.

    I would advise people not to waste their money.

  • Starting To See Results!
    I've been using the RESPeRATE for a little over three weeks now, and I am starting to see some positive results! My blood pressure before using the RESPeRATE was around 150's/100's- now after three weeks of two a day sessions(once in the morning and once in the evening), my pressure is around 130's/70's. To tell the truth, I was having trouble at first with it, and was getting very discouraged, however, like the moderators on the RESPeRATE forum have continued to say, breathing easy and naturally is the key to sucess, something that I was not doing the first few times that I used the RESPeRATE. Now, I am actually enjoying using it, it really makes me feel calm and tranquil after my daily sessions. A Big "thumbs-up" for the RESPeRATE!!! Thanks, JB...more info
  • do some research
    One reviewer (who obviously hasn't purchased or tried it out) said he wouldn't reccomend it without seeing the clinical trials. A good point, BUT with a few clicks I was able to find copies of 6 of the 7 clinical studies... PLUS many peer reviewed medical journals that had articles that were NOT written by "employees of their company".
    I won't bother with my personal anecdote- but I do believe this product works. The company's website is a good start [...]...more info
  • Breathe deeply more often
    I have not used this machine but will base my opinion on the use of a blood pressure monitor that I purchased when my blood pressure suddenly shot up to 170/100. I think this was due to food poisoning. Anyway my blood pressure had always been pretty low, approximately 105/65 when I was in my 20s to 30s and about 125 to 135 once I passed 45. After the food poisoning incident, I purchased a blood pressure monitor from Wal-mart to watch my blood pressure. One day, when I sat down to take my blood pressure, I had a really exhausting day. I was pretty tired and decided to relax myself by taking a long slow deep breath in through my stomach and an equal amount of time exiting the breath through my stomach. I then did the reading and my blood pressure was 106/64. Was this a coincidence or was it because I had taken the deep breath? I did one long deep breath several times again within the week just before I took my blood pressure and each time my pressure was lower than normal. I started doing deep breathing once or twice a day when I wasn't using the monitor (2 to 3 long deep breaths in through my stomach and out through my stomach) after which I always felt more relaxed.

    My blood pressure has stabilized to approximately 115/70, I think this is a direct result of the deep breathing exercises that I do during the day. The RESPeRATE blood pressure monitor seems to be a good machine and after reading the reviews, it sounds like a meditation or biofeedback machine. I think the RESPeRATE blood pressure monitor is an excellent machine for someone that needs to be taught slow deep breathing exercises through the stomach, but if you can't afford this machine or find it difficult to sit for 15 minutes a day, try an inexpensive blood pressure monitor and practice on that. Same concept. If you're breathing right, the monitor will reflect it. If you're excited or agitated, or your blood pressure and heart rate speeds up whenever a doctor takes your pressure "White Coat Syndrome," the RESPeRATE machine may help you to remain calm in all situations.

  • Works as described for me
    I had considered this product a number of times but sat on the fence because of the price. A recent increase in my BP, despite taking the usual steps to lower it, required an increase in my medication which stabilized but did not lower it. I made up my mind then to try RESPeRATE. After a month of daily use, my BP as well as my resting pulse rate have all lowered.

    The machine is easy to use and requires only 15-20 minutes per session. I also find the routine to be meditative and relaxing. I recommend finding a quiet place to use it with no distractions or interruptions.

    As far the price, however, they should have included the carry/storage bag. The earphones supplied are no better than the throw-away type airlines sell for $2. They could have been better quality. Also the built in storage compartment is barely adequate for the sensor, belt and wires....more info
  • Don't waste your money
    After using the device for several weeks I noticed little or no lowering of my blood pressure. The technique of slow breating can be accomplshed on your own with sufficient concentration. Also, the machine quit functioning properly after a time....more info
  • It does work
    This product does work! I have a family history of HBP, and although I am in my 20s, excercise daily and eat right, my readings are climbing into the 140s/90s zone. I am pregnant right now, and I know that HBP is very bad during a pregnancy. So, I looked into Resperate. Since I started using Resperate (about a month) my blood presure has dropped about 8-10/8-10 pts. I am hoping that this trend continues. I use Resperate AT LEAST 4 times a week--I try for 5-7 times a week.

    Yes the price is high, but Resperate (which is basicly meditation) is much better than putting chemicals in your body. And, for me, it is better than being put on bedrest and having your life taken from you. Try it! ...more info
  • Effective...if you work at it...
    A sample of the RESPeRATE was given to the internal medicine practice where I worked at the time.

    It DOES take "getting acquainted" to learn how to use this. You must actually read the manual to gather it's operation. Once you get oriented, it is pleasant-and effective-when one is RECEPTIVE to what the device is supposed to do. If an individual has issues with labored breathing for any reason, it will be a challenge to use (albeit a very soothing one). You are to breathe along with the preprogrammed music of your choosing (there are a handful of melodies), and the music gets slower and slower. The change of tempo is influenced by the feedback the belt around your waist gives the machine. You will be challenged to breathe REALLY deep and REALLY slow. I mean, like, master yoga practitioner slow!!! Challenging. Doable, but challenging. If you do it and keep with these exercises in breathing, you WILL be better for it. I want the reader to clearly understand that although this machine is very very soothing to use, it is not to be mistaken for a luxury item or a toy relative to addressing your health. It takes time-daily!-and receptivity to its relaxing powers to obtain tangible results. The RESPeRATE will teach you the good HABIT of healthy breathing while lowering your blood pressure if you actually use it.

    Big expense, but you'll spend the same on a year of copays for your prescription drug. It qualifies as a reimbursable expenditure if you have a flexible spending account. If it's about the end of the year and you still have funds in your FSA, go for it!

    Even if you don't have high blood pressure, it's excellent for relaxation right before bed, or just plain stress management. I would imagine that even children over the age of six or so would like using one. ...more info

  • RESPeRATE
    First of all I'd like to say I'm really very pleased with Amazon.com with their prompt response to my complaint that the first Resperate machine that I received wasn't working. They immediately sent a replacement which arrived the next day after my complaint. And I was instructed to have the defective item ready for collection by UPS - at no extra cost to me, not even the shipping & handling of the defective item nor of the replacement item.
    As with the replacement Resperate machine itself, it is working perfectly - exactly as described in the manual. I have been using it once a day since it arrived and my blood pressure has shown improvement, from a high of 155/101 to a low of 133/96. I am sure my blood pressure will go to a normal of 120/80 as I continue to use it everyday. I am 63 years of age by the way....more info
  • Yes, it does work!
    I don't know why, but Amazon never posted my review, so I will try again.

    First let me say that I am in no way affliated with InterCure, the maker of the Resperate. I am just an average person who was looking for a way to lower his blood pressure without using drugs and enduring their dreaded side effects.

    To make a long story short, I was desperate to lower my blood pressure. It was peaking at 150/100 during the most stressful part of my day. Well, after using the Resperate device for about 2 months, my blood pressure has dropped to an average of about 115/75!

    I have not experienced any side effects. But, there have been some additional benefits, such as improved sleep,mental clarity, and stress relief.

    If you are reading this most likely you are trying to lower your blood pressure. You have nothing to lose by trying the Resperate. Go for it!...more info
  • Great Device
    For 25 years I was besieged with uncontrollable High Blood Pressure. This Resperate solved my problem and SAVED MY LIFE. Before I found Resperate I spoke to doctors about my situation and it seems like alot of them just want to pound your body with pills without realizing that there are other ways to lower blood pressure, and in the meantime people die because they don't know about Resperate and that's a shame.

    I would like to let people know that you guys have a marvelous product. I came across one of ads in USA Today and I said to myself, "Why not, let me take a shot at this". I had been trying for years to control my blood pressure and finally decided to take a shot with this device. My blood pressure used to be in the range of 184/69 constantly, after using Resperate for 6 weeks I got down to 111/59. My doctor was flabbergasted at the change, this thing did the job beautifully. I use it at least 4 times a week, in 15 minute sessions. I have to say, I used to be petrified whenever I would go to have my blood pressure taken, I would think to myself, "Oh my God, what's it gonna be this time"...And now I have no concerns, I'm comfortable, I look forward to it know that I'm gonna get a good reading every time, no more fear. ...more info
  • This product works! But...
    First of all let me start with the negative: I believe this product is over-priced, especially in order to reach the elderly and poor people. This is a product that can spread by word of mouth. You're not going to get everyone to buy this product at $300 and probably not for $200. I believe that other products like this will be out soon, because this product really works!
    I was skeptical of this item and I told my doctor about it and he smirked at the product, another told me breathing really had nothing to do with my blood pressure. I am glad I didn't listen, but the price sort of held me back.

    Pros: My average blood pressure was ranging from 150/81 to 160/90 on a regularly basis. I immediately saw a drop upon my first use. I was originally using the device 2-3 times a day, just to see if it worked. The second week of use my BP was averaging 140/90; Third week 133/85 and this week I have gotten readings below 120/80. I am going to the doctors this week and due a 5-day check from my doctor and after that schedule an appointment to discuss the item he smirked at earlier. Bottom line, I would strongly recommend buying this product. Buy it now if you can afford the price.

    I think everyone with high BP should try this device, with the amount of money out there with the drug companies; this is a way for RESPERATE to come through the back door, but not at this price.

    At the doctors office I had a blood pressure reading on 12/05/05 of 148/82 and on 1/05/06 of 167/80. I started using Resperate on July 2006 at least 3 times a week.

  • No one talks about this -- This Unit is NOT A VALUE
    There are a lot of good reviews here on Resperate. A number of them sound so good they could have been "placed" here by the manufacturer.

    Look, I have no doubt that Resperate will make a reduction happen for many people who use it, because the idea is sound. It's based on good science-that meditation reduces blood pressure readings.

    But let's take a look at what you get here. This is basically a $30 Chinese CD player being sold with a built in "tune" for $300. It is NOT a quality product. I used it for two months, got a small reduction in my blood pressure readings. But the first unit I received was defective within a week, and the second one looked like it was going to have the same problems. Physically, it is not made well. It's chintzy. And when I spend $300 for an electronic device, MAN that thing had better be cool, and really made well. In this case, the little plastic piece that has the digital readout on it came off, the earphone jack had to be held in only a certain way in order to work, and the cheazy little monitor thing that goes around your chest is actually hard-wired right into the case, which is crazy because it is prone to shorting out. So, in short, you'd have to be really nutty to keep this thing after the 30 day evaluation because its "self-destruct" mode starts kicking in about then. The company has a great $100 product here, but they put an extra $200 into the retail price so that they could promote the heck out of it. Even the headphones that come with it are so cheaply made that they fall apart faster than the units that they give away in airline seats.

    What you get with Resperate is something that you could have for free just by sitting in a chair and slowing down your breathing. What you DON'T get is quality. This is a device equivalent to what you'd get for $25 or $30 in a WalMart if you were buying some kind of electronic gadget. Cheazy and without any similarity to something worth $300. And for those who believe that the blood pressure result is what you are paying for, and not the unit itself, you can get EXACTLY the same results by spending $20 on a meditation/breathing CD and listening to it an hour or two a week....more info
  • Simple & Effective
    After reading about it in a magazine, I bought this product as a gift for a dear friend.
    She has high blood pressure, can't tolerate any medications, and is not exactly handy with electronics.
    I opened the box before I gave it to her and tried it out to be sure it wouldn't send her blood pressure zooming up with frustration when she tried to use it. It seemed to be very easy to use, and, side effect, extremely soothing what with the music (an ingenious way to follow a pattern of breathing). She has told me that she absolutely loves it. She is quite sincere. And many of her other friends are so impressed, they're getting the machine as well. It has been a real boon. She says it has changed her life and solves a problem she's been battling for so many years. I love her and don't want to lose her. Best gift I ever gave....more info
  • It Works!

  • Amazing
    I love this devise. I bought the duel machine so that it would keep track of both my boyfriend and myself. I am in my early 40's and he is in his late 30's. We are not over weight and we do exercise regularly. But still both of us had prehypertention/stage 1 hypertention. Within three days my blood pressure had gone down to normal levels! 3 days! The directions say it takes 3 to 4 weeks to see a difference but mine was much quicker. I started by using it every day to get in to the habit but now am using it 3 times a week as suggested. My boyfriend's progress has been slower but it also brought his blood pressure down within the first week.

    You have to be willing to put in the time or it will not work. But wouldn't you rather put in 45 minutes a week than go on medication? The other great thing about the Resperate is that it is very relaxing to use. It's like taking a little time out of the day to simply relax. I think it's great for anxiety too. It just helps you to slow down and concentrate on your breath. I can't say enough good things about the resperate. I'm so happy I bought it. ...more info
  • provides deep sleep
    Several reviews I read, said that it helped with sleeping, as well as blood pressure reduction. That feature alone sold me on trying it. Often I wake up during the night and have difficulty getting back to sleep. On the second or third day I had the machine, I tried it just before going to bed. That relaxed me and it seems to work really well. I find that I now sleep soundly, and if I am awakened by the dog, I still get right back to sleep. Also I find I seem to have more dreams using the machine. It does drop my blood pressure right after use, but it is too early to tell if it will reduce it all the time. It takes 4 to 6 weeks of use for that. I use the machine for two 10 minute secessions each day, 4:30 pm and just before going to bed. The headset was defective when I received it, and Amazon customer service service has not answered my email asking if I could just return the headset. Resperate would not exchange it. I just bought another headset because I did not want to send back the machine. Also I sent an email to customer service saying that the online rebate form did not accept my email address or order number. I did receive an answer to call them or forward my email to a different customer depertment. When I called they had me fill out the online form again while they were on the phone, and again it was not accepted. So I was told to just mail it in. But if the online rebate does not recognize the order number, it makes me wonder if the mail-in rebate will go through. It is expensive, so that is a concern. ...more info

  • The proof's in the pressure!
    Alright, I haven't used this personally. But I witnessed a most impressive display of its powers today in my clinic. My seventy-something year old patient is very interested in doing whatever it takes to improve her health. In the blood pressure department, that includes three different medications, one beta-blocker plus Lotrel, a two-fer drug that combines an ACE inhibitor and a calcium channel blocker.

    You'd think that would be enough to knock points off the pressure. She was dismayed, however, that recent readings both off drugs and on were indistinguishable AND way too high. Before today's visit, she dusted off her Resperate and breathed to the tones. Her pressure in office? 120/78. I'm sold!...more info

  • Best for those who struggle with the basics of staying healthy
    I am glad this product is available. Not for me, but perhaps for the majority of people who are not aware of the huge benefits of slow, deep relaxed breathing. If you are disciplined, and you are practiced, at yoga, relaxation response, or meditation, this product will seem a bit silly. You can save 300. bucks by following this advice: Take slow deep breaths for 10-15 minutes a day, take less than 10 breaths per minute, and try to do less if you can, but not below 5. Do this every day and watch your blood pressure go down. Thats it. I think they could send a CD with the same tracks on it and give you90% of what this things does. I sent mine back and opted to just do the breathing with my cheap timer...Kudos to this company for making a drug free way to lower blood pressure. It will help a lot of people i am sure...more info
  • Does the job!

  • Worth Every Penny
    I bought one of these about two years ago. I have been on 30MG Lisinopril for years and the pressure was once again creeping up into the 150's. Since I began using this device on a regular basis, I can not remember the last time my blood pressure was over the 130's and it is often in the 120's. (I have never had a problem with the diastolic pressure but it has dropped as well).

    And it is SO enjoyable. I have tried meditation and find it is difficult but 'resperating' is something I now treasure....more info
  • Amazing
    I love this devise. I bought the duel machine so that it would keep track of both my boyfriend and myself. I am in my early 40's and he is in his late 30's. We are not over weight and we do exercise regularly. But still both of us had prehypertention/stage 1 hypertention. Within three days my blood pressure had gone down to normal levels! 3 days! The directions say it takes 3 to 4 weeks to see a difference but mine was much quicker. I started by using it every day to get in to the habit but now am using it 3 times a week as suggested. My boyfriend's progress has been slower but it also brought his blood pressure down within the first week.

    You have to be willing to put in the time or it will not work. But wouldn't you rather put in 45 minutes a week than go on medication? The other great thing about the Resperate is that it is very relaxing to use. It's like taking a little time out of the day to simply relax. I think it's great for anxiety too. It just helps you to slow down and concentrate on your breath. I can't say enough good things about the resperate. I'm so happy I bought it. ...more info
  • Highly Recommended! Excellent Product!
    You can't go wrong with this machine. My BP has been dropping since I got the item. And even if you are one of the rare ones it doesn't seem to work for the stress relief is worth it alone. I couldn't live without owning one. ...more info
  • Resperate Device
    I have found this product to be of good quality and and effective in it's intended use....more info
  • Great alternative to treat Hypertension
    I have used the device for a little over 2 months now. You need to have patience, and not get frustrated/give up, because you won't see results overnight. My readings only started to improve recently. So, just stick with it. The instructions are easy to follow and straight forward. Having never done any relaxation techniques, I was a bit nervous with my first `session' as to what to expect. Nothing to worry about! The music does a nice job guiding your breathing to a slower rate, you hardly notice. And when done, there is nothing 'to come out of'. I am very much looking forward to my daily session. And: no side effects as with drugs!! It is definitely worth the money. ...more info
  • Mediocre results but an unexpected benefit
    I tried this because I wanted to see if I could lower my blood pressure enough to stop medication that had unwanted side effects. I'm still on medication. However, the device has helped me get to sleep and sleep better.

    I read the research on Resperate's website, and even though none of this research was referenced on the American Heart Association website, decided to try it. Here was my testing procedure:

    1) Over 5 day period, prior to using Resperate, I took my blood pressure twice a day, and averaged the scores. This was my baseline: 115 over 89.

    2) I used Resperate 15 mins. every day, prior to going to sleep. While the timed breathing seemed easy, it still required a little concentration. I consistently had breath detection and sychronization scores over 86%. My beginning breath rate averaged 8 and ending rate was 5.

    3) I continued taking my blood pressure as above, and always prior to using the device. Pressure readings fluctuate even within the same minute, so I took three readings and averaged them whenever I measured it. I tracked the daily pressure on a spreadsheet.

    RESULTS: During the first 30 days, results seemed impressive. Graphing the slope of all the daily points, the final point was 106 over 81. I continued every day, but the pressure went back up. Was this a placebo effect?

    Over the next month, pressure again fell, but not as low. Overall average after 60 days: 111 over 84. Systolic dropped 4 points, Diastolic 5 points.

    This was not like the dramatic results described on their website. I would probably sell this device except for an unanticipated side effect: better sleep patterns. I have had difficultly getting and staying asleep, using medication about every 3 nights. I have only taken sleep medication once since beginning Resperate.

    I also saw they dropped the price on the Resperate website, so if you want to try it, you might investigate there.

    FINAL NOTE: If you are diabetic (I'm not), there's clinical evidence that this approach has a low probability of working for you. I saw no reference of this point on their website.

  • Get One!

    My Resparate works great, and is helping significantly. It is a good product. Customer support is good. No problems yet, but after years of use some parts may need to be replaced. This is a relaxing and effective way to maintain BP health. Seven clinical studies establish its effectiveness, and it is working for me.

    I recommend this product without reservations....more info
  • I'm trying to be patient
    I consistently have a high BP reading (160-180/100-110). Even though I take different five medications to lower it, the results are always the same. When I purchased Resperate, I had high hopes because it seemed to be successful for so many people. I've been using the machine faithfully every day (15-20 minutes) for almost four weeks. Early this week, I went to the doctor expecting a drop in my blood pressure (last visit it was 170+/100+). Unfortunately, there was no change (170/100). To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. A little change would have made the difference between keeping it or returning it. The same reading means I am returning it....more info
