• It may be necessary to remove the talc coating from the inside of the open ended rubber tube when first used – this is best done using damp cotton wool bud.
  • Check that the test subject is comfortable with the belt on. If not then the results may be compromised, as physiological stress will create abnormal breathing patterns. Avoiding selecting students as test subjects who are sensitive to hyperventilation or who are nervous by nature.
  • Coughing, sneezing, laughing, moving and talking will affect the reading. The test subject should be relaxed and motionless.
  • Avoid the test subject viewing the data on the computer screen to ensure they do not subconsciously alter their breathing rate.
  • If the test subject experiences dizziness, nausea or a headache, stop the investigation and remove the Belt immediately.

The Breathing Rate Belt can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Comparing breathing patterns of different student groups e.g. athletes and non-athletes, wind-instrument players, female and males, different ages, etc.
  • Relaxation Studies
  • Recovery time after exercise
