Slow breathing is the easiest way to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Moonbird makes it intuitive and easy to do breathing exercises.
Inner peace, in your hands
Use it anywhere, anytime. Moonbird guides you through slow-paced breathing exercises. You can track the effect on your body via the app. Finding inner peace was never that easy.
“A calming breathing technique for stress, anxiety and panic takes just a few minutes and can be done anywhere.”
“Even as little as one minute of deep breathing can lessen anxiety and reduce stress hormones in your bloodstream.”
“WHO’s stress management guides provide information and practical skills e.g. breathing exercises to help people cope with stress.”
“The number one thing to get under control when you are feeling overwhelmed and/or anxious”
I’ve tried some of the popular breathing / meditation apps. But apps are not so much my thing, it’s very hard to keep being focused. Having the tactile element of expansion/contraction in your hand makes it so much easier to keep your focus. You don’t have to do anything, just follow your moonbird.

The breathing exercises of moonbird are backed by extensive amounts of scientific research. We developed a new way of supporting people during the breathing exercises. Moonbird provides tactile feedback, instead of visual or auditive cues used in most guidance tools. After developing our moonbird, we did several user tests to gather feedback and improve our device. This project was supervised by doctors and pharmacists. We also did an objective high-density EEG study to investigate brain connectivity during moonbird slow-paced breathing. What did we find? Moonbird assisted breathing resulted in a less active brain, but more structured brain connectivity. This means that moonbird helps you to calm the mind, unwind and relax. Lastly, moonbird was tested in people suffering from insomnia. On average 80% of the insomniacs reported almost 40% better sleep quality and felt more refreshed during the day. You can check the impact of the breathing exercises on your body for yourself, via the built-in biofeedback function in the app. Breathing slowly is one of the best ways to increase HRV and reduce stress.
Moonbird is a physical breathing guide: it expands and contracts in the hand, providing you a slow pace to match with your breathing rhythm. Breathe in while the device expands, and breathe out while the device contracts in the palm of your hand. You don't have to think or count your breaths anymore, all you need to do is breathe along. Do you want to see the impact of the exercises on your body? Moonbird incorporates a photoplethysmogram (PPG) sensor that acquires heart rate data and comes with a mobile app. The app presents real-time biofeedback on HR and HRV and the level of coherence. The app also allows you to select different exercises or set your own personal breathing rhythm.
