The Breath Rate Sensor measures breath rate by sensing the pressure change within a standard, disposable dust mask. It generates consistently stable output, even when used during exercise. The sensor’s tubing connects to the disposable pressure clips that fasten to the sides of the mask.
- One reading every breath
- Running average over last four breadths

How It Works
The Breath Rate Sensor measures breathing rate before, during, and after exercise. Measurements are digitally sent to a computer or datalogger, where they’re displayed and recorded for analysis. The sensor detects each breath by monitoring changes in air pressure within a mask worn by the subject. It measures the time between exhalations to determine breath rate. This sensor outputs measurements for breath rate and average breath rate.
