What We Measure
Just like a doctor uses a stethoscope to listen to a child’s breathing, ZYTO “listens” to the body’s subtle galvanic skin response using the ZYTO Hand Cradle. Through this connection, biocommunication can occur.
The process of measuring responses as various Virtual Items are introduced to the body includes the following steps.
The Virtual Item is a unique digital code representing an actual item—a food, product, service, organ, body system, etc. Just like a flight simulator mimics flying in real life, these items represent “situations” the body may respond to.
The degree of coherence to which your body responds to a Virtual Item is measured using galvanic skin response, or GSR.
Calculated Deviation Ratio
The difference between the response and the baseline is calculated. The resulting calculation is the dR, or deviation ratio: A positive number dR is assigned when the response was more coherent than the baseline, indicating biological coherence. A negative number is assigned to a less coherent response, indicating biological aversion.A 0 dR means the response was the same as its baseline reading, indicating a neutral response.
