Designed by Urban Würsch of Scanderra, the pneemo Atemtakter is a compact device that guides the user’s breathing to a rhythm optimized to promote rest and relaxation.
For its sustainable and user-friendly design, pneemo Atemtakter has recently been awarded a 2022 Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Its gentle vibrations help the user regain control of their breathing when they feel overwhelmed.
pneemo’s programmed rhythm calms, soothes, and comforts the user naturally, reducing the dependence on and overuse of certain medications.
pneemo can be a useful aid in the following: emergency situations such as fear and panic; ongoing conditions such as stress, mild hypertension, lung disorders, concentration, sleep problems, addiction; and other circumstances such as menopause and childbirth.
Empowering people to find the health within themselves pneemo unlocks your inner self-healing power of slow-paced breathing.
Scientists believe this is the key to better health, and pneemo uses this to optimize your breathing to signal to the body that you’re sleeping, triggering a relaxed state of regeneration and repair.
New research exploring the effects of slow-paced breathing on heart rate variability (HRV) and blood pressure is currently underway.
Experts estimate that half of the participants will experience a benefit after 3 minutes, increasing to 80% after 8 minutes and 100% after a full 10 minutes.
This evidence would suggest that slow paced breathing can replace the power nap in order to quickly and efficiently refresh the mind and body.
Zurich-based designer of pneemo, Urban Würsch, says, “Great design should never compromise on function and never be wasteful.”
