Why NOZPAD ADVENTURE will be game changer in Wearable Smart Glasses?

Glasses have been firstly a curative tool for vision correction and then a preventive for vision management and then became fashion-ware. And each of these transitions have rode the predecessor trend to evolve into new. So if history can be some peek into future, smart glasses have to fulfill three conditions for curative, preventive and fashion to disruption without destruction.

And in this space, Nozpad is uniquely positioned with defensible patents, USP of health & fitness, strongest team, long term strategy, and sharp focus on niche.
To start with, Nozpad ADVENTURE exists with a purpose. It is not a lost device which is searching its motive without motivation. But it is absolutely crystal clear for Nozpad to make world healthy by being intelligent, smart and honest. Glasses remain closest to breathing and brain which add a philosophical responsibility to be the brain of an integrated wearable system which has been pioneered as #InternetOfHealth. IOH is a framework of organising wearable techs around a user for optimal and synergetic function. Like a cardiogram wearable and partner with a temperature sensor wearable to do more things than individually possible.
World is bright for humanity to find a new discourse of economic and social efficiency of health system without loosing human touch. At the same time, we have to define some new rules of thriving in complex+fast+dynamic global economy where health, information and capital all have to find a new order. This is not the first time. Facebook solved that challenge in time for new global communication system which averted and is averting some major crisis in human history.
On the same lines, new epidemic and health scenario is evolving which needs a better mechanism of monitoring and controlling one's health by oneself, and where society should play the role of absorbing and feedback the change.

NOZPAD is wearable nosewear and eyewear device for tracking of breathing rate, rhythm and cycle for health and fitness. Breathing sound and respiration cycle(right & left as well as inhale & exhale) is detected from both sides of nose through nasal bone conduction of sound waves. Ancient Indian, Tibetan, and Roman scientific studies have factual research to prove that breathing rhythmic cycle has significant impact on our health and fitness. Also at the same time, the rate and rhythm can predict early warning signs of evolving health conditions.
Help us make an open and democratic standard of health diagnosis #InternetOfHealth 
In our busy lives, we can greatly improve our efficiency and independence by self-managed live health monitoring of Nozpad.  It has become important to check our health deviations in available time and  without losing accuracy or affordability. Nozpad live tracking provides expert system advice and is easily accessible through Android, IOS, Windows and web apps. 

WHO SHOULD USE NOZPAD?
Nozpad is for improving your health through breathing control. It is broadly for Two Types of Users:
  1. Fitness - Efficient sports, training, and workouts with lower energy and higher output.
  2.  Health - Curative regime for Hypertension, Depression and Apnea.

We are adding more breathing rhythm, rate and cycle templates through machine model in consultation with subject matter experts for diabetes, cardiac, liver and lung functions. Apart from that, we also endeavour to add mental health improvement machine models templates.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The chart below explains the working of Nozpad. There are 3 stages of an iterative process for both health and fitness users.
Firstly, you need optionally preset your app for type of indication monitoring. We currently support 4 types, namely Hypertension, Depression, and Apnea. There is another type for Functional training for fitness which is customised for sports, training and workout. 
Second stage is for data capture, where a set duration of breathing cycle has to be measured for results. It varies from 4 hours to 12 hours. For apnea patients, it is recommended to be used at night using nosewear devices, which are ergonomic for sleep-time usage.
The third stage is transparent to users during which machine models are applied to data for identifying severity and causal patterns. The method of "Nadi Sodhan"(ancient science) is algorithmically applied to find corrective advisory for the users. It is advised to follow the advisory in consultation with supervisor who can be subject matter expert physicians. For local observations, the supervision can also be performed by parents, partners or coach.


We are working to add more medical indications for mental health, heart, liver and lung functions.

OUR MOTIVATION
We have experienced breathing challenges of many people including some dear-ones who had problems of shallow breath, asthma, apnea, sleep-breath disorder and other respiratory problems. The problem has become more concerning for childrens who are often not able to express their problems and their physiological conditions are often ignored because of milder symptoms. This has motivated us to research the diagnosis methods and requirements of an improved preventive technique. Gladly we found a lot of knowledge available in ancient texts like Swara Shashtra(Sanskrit), Nadi Science(Tibetan), and Roman texts which highlight rhythm and rate of breathing as a key metric of our health for both retrospective as well as predictive outlook.


And thus, self-managed and portable continuous health monitoring has become a reality with Nozpad.

HOW NOZPAD IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BREATHING DEVICES?
NOZPAD is three dimensional technology. While other devices like (Spire.io, etc) measure breathing rate(air pressure of inhale, exhale and its time duration), Nozpad measures the air pressures, rhythm and temporal distribution in Left and Right Nostrils individually. Because of this, this device is able to capture hormonal, physiological and psychological state of body and mind.
FOR ALL AGE GROUPS & ALL ACTIVITIES
Nozpads are suitable for all age groups and all types of activities including during sleep. 


  1. NOSEWEARS: BREEZE By NOZPAD
    We have branded Nozpad-nozsewears as BREEZE. Nosewears could be used during sleep, swimming,  and sports. Breeze brand of nosewear devices are suitable for kids, elderlies and night-time breath activity monitoring for healthy living as well as for sports, tracks and high-energy activities. The unisex products are available in two variants of colour(Black, White). Breeze is a new revolutionary and fashionable nosewear for self-managed health tracking through feature rich upper respiratory monitoring. You just need to wear the device while it is powered-on and connect to a smart phone. In a few hours of use, you shall start receiving your health related information as analysed from your breathing rate and rhythm.
  2. EYEWEARS: SOLO & ADVENTURE By NOZPAD
  3. Adventure brand of eyewear devices are suitable for all purpose universal usage. The unisex products are available in many variants of colour, style and model. Adventure Nozpads are designed for universality, agility, aerodynamics, and stability.

NOZPAD DIAGNOSTIC FEATURES
 Nozpad app provides Status & Prediction types of health diagnosis. 
  1. Current and Trailing Statistics  shows rhythm line graphs of left and right nostril air pressure(waves), breathing rate variation and Body-Mass-Index to Breath Ratio.
  2. Three Dimensional Health predictive diagnosis is the crucial part of Live Health monitoring system which shows average breath shortfall and identified health conditions.

Average Breath Shortfall: A metric of breathing balance measure and completeness of breathing. It has three levels, 
(a) Green zone(Below 50%) indicates safe level
(b) Blue zone(50% - 80%) indicates concern and needs intervention.
(c) Red zone(>80%) indicates special attention and expert consulting.

Health Indications: This is a predictive metric derived from pattern of breathing rate, rhythm and cycle. We employ machine learning models built using exhaustive datasets of test cases to identify cardio activity, airflow, and balance of overall physical system. These indicators are helpful to consult with an expert of breath diagnosis.
We will gradually add more health indications to create a universal health standards based on breathing.

NOZPAD SOCIAL FEATURES
You can create a closed group of family, friends, and expert health advisors using the social app for an improved lifestyle management.


DATA PRIVACY
Social features of Nozpad are optional and predictive functions work without sharing your data with us or any third party. We maintain standardised models of health prediction based on breathing rhythm derived from our own research and closed group of users.

MEDICAL APPLICABILITY AND RELIABILITY
NOZPAD is built using computer based machine learning techniques derived from proven medical parameters. And human touch and care is irreplaceable as in case of doctors, expert professionals and specialised therapists.

PRODUCT IMPACT VISION
We aim to create low cost health diagnosis system based on integration of many bodies of knowledge. So that a sustainable health system can be created for new global economic challenges of affordability and viability for masses. In long term, we aim to reduce the cost of Nozpad upto one dollar for globalised affordability through creating an ecosystem of health service providers and beneficiaries. We call it Internet of Health powered by breathing. It will be secure, source-anonymised for privacy and low-cost health syste. Also the platform will be open for public audits and open api for free collaboration and further innovation.



PRODUCT TECHNOLOGY
Nozpad is based on Bluetooth technology for connecting with a mobile device for data processing. The sensors come in both electret and  mems variety. We are also researching to study UV and IR technologies to make improved cardio-respiratory devices. The wireless technologies used by Nozpad are compliant to strict regulations of US and European governing units. Nozpad is a patent pending technology.

Nozpad metric : Average Breath Shortfall

Nozpad glasses monitor breathing rate, rhythm and cycle. The app converts these complex data to simple dashboard of health status and forecasting.
Average Breath Shortfall is one of the metrics of holistic breathing. The app tells you the need of breathing regulation by this simple graph.
How to Interpret?
  1. Green (Below 50% ): Safe zone
  2. Blue (Below 80% ): Matter of concern
  3. Red (Above 80% ): Needs immediate consultation

Preventive Actions
There are many ways to correct the "breath short-fall", like workouts, running, swimming and yoga.
In yoga, there is a simple method called Anulom-Vilom which can be practiced for 20-60 breaths for correction of breath shortfall.
Here is an example of how breath regulation yoga of Anulom-Vilom affects sports performance and is also cure of many chronic illnesses.

How Nozpad works?

Nozpad glasses are attached with 2 special breath sensors to detect breathing rate, rhythm and cycle on both sides of the nose. This additional monitoring of breath cycle provides information about switching of breath in RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT pattern. The breath cycle pattern has many indications about physical, psychological and meta-physical state of the body.
An ideal regulated breath cycle switched its sides in 2-3 hours. But certain conditions of age, food, stress and temperament alters this cycle. Also the great beauty about this nasal cycle is that altering it can greatly affect our health.
There are many exercises and yoga practices which directly and indirectly regulate our breathing pattern.
Regulation of breathing affects our metabolism, and mental focus. These two impacts alone are so powerful for cure of many ailments like hypertension, depression, blood pressure, etc.
Nozpad wearables and app help you in identifying the magnitude of deviation of breathing pattern from standard so that you can put right amount of focus on your health and choose right workout or yoga for the benefit.
