Breathe through COVID-19

Use breath retention to increase oxygenation and build lung capacity, strength and resilience while reducing stress and anxiety.

Tripura: Supporting those affected by COVID-19

Tripura is an intelligent breathing coach teaching techniques to help with Covid-19. Using breath retentions and exercises increases oxygenation levels and builds lung resilience while reducing stress and anxiety.

Covid-19 has been difficult for everyone, healthcare workers, patients and family and friends of those affected. The healthcare systems are under pressure with increasing deaths, complications and lack of staff and support.

If you are a healthcare worker yourself, you are swamped with putting out fires, rushing to the next patient, postponing surgeries and other medical emergencies as this situation has taken precedent. You are part of a team of heroes that are working hard in fighting the Covid-19 crisis. You wish you had more tools at your disposal to help patients recover from the virus.

Teaching patients breathing exercises can help them recover.

How does Covid-19 affect the lungs?

Covid-19 affects the respiratory system to the point of shutting down the lung functions, affecting the body’s oxygenation hence efficient functioning and homeostasis. In the past few months we have witnessed many complications as a result. Anything from inflammation throughout the body, strokes, loss of vision, loss of life to loss of hope and connection.

Breathing techniques increase oxygenation in the lungs

Taking deeper and longer breaths, allow the lungs to fill up with more oxygen, increasing oxygenation levels in the lungs and throughout the body. This increases the lung capacity and improves many functions of the body.

Evidence based benefits of breath regulation

“Evidence based benefits of voluntary breath regulation have shown physical, emotional and cognitive effects” says Dr. Shirley Telles, Ph.D. in neurophysiology from the National Institute of Mental Health & Neuroscience [NIMHANS] in India.

Many studies have demonstrated through changes in depth, rate, oral\nasal breathing, retention and extended exhalation we can contribute to strengthening our metabolism, increasing our ventilation capacity and regulating the body and the effects of its stressors. With the increase of cases, death tolls and complications, we can use this evidence based research to the benefit of all by practicing simple guided techniques to help boost our chances of fighting this virus as an extra tool.

In the case of Covid-19, let breathe be thy medicine, so we can collectively flatten the curve.

Scientific studies show that deep breathing

helps with stress and anxiety by

supporting the nervous system.

“Deep abdominal breathing encourages full oxygen exchange — that is, the beneficial trade of incoming oxygen for outgoing carbon dioxide. Not surprisingly, it can slow the heartbeat and lower or stabilize blood pressure.”
“A breathing technique said to help people with COVID-19 symptoms is getting praise from “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling and CNN broadcaster Chris Cuomo.”
“Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes a state of calmness. Breathing techniques help you feel connected to your body—it brings your awareness away from the worries in your head and quiets your mind.”
“Les exercices de respiration visent à rouvrir les poumons et à évacuer les sécrétions. Comme on sait que les pneumonies et les problèmes respiratoires figurent parmi les principales complications liées à la COVID-19, on comprend la pertinence d’un tel exercice pour les gens atteints.”
“The research findings show that the advice to “take a deep breath” may not just be a cliché. Exercises involving volitional breathing appear to alter the connectivity between parts of the brain and allow access to internal sites that normally are inaccessible to us. “

Meet Tripura – Your breathing coach for a healthier future.

The first interactive, 3D animation, multi-dimensional, multi-sensory simulated guided breathwork application with artificial intelligence and biofeedback. It is an intelligent breathing coach system that guides the users to their optimal breathing practice according to their objectives and experience.

In light of supporting the community and helping when in need, we would like to offer free access to the mobile breathwork application, Tripura.

The Tripura Mission

Introducing Tripura, the world’s first Intelligent Breathing Coach! Ever since discovering the power of ancient breathing techniques to recover her lost voice after a serious accident, Anne-Marie Denault is on a mission to share the benefits of proper breathing to the world. She envisioned a breathing coach manifested as an avatar guiding users through customized breathing sessions helping them achieve specific wellness goals. In addition to offering an extensive library of ancient breathing techniques, Tripura will measure the breath quality and pulse, and adapt the sessions based on this biofeedback. Starting with a mobile application, and expanding to immersive experiences from corporate and living rooms to collective sensory experiences. The vision for Tripura, the intelligent breathing coach, is to become an interactive hologram offering multimedia experienced via Augmented Reality (AR) through technologies such as the Microsoft Hololens, powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Grounded in R&D, the benefits of proper breathing will be assessed through scientific studies.This project is supported by the Ministere de l’Economie et de l’Innovation (MEI) and the Business Development of Canada (BDC).
