The Televagal PhysioCam
Your nervous system in vivid colour
This user-friendly device displays nervous system variables like traffic lights on a wireless glowing ball and can be used both in therapy sessions or between them
Dr Stephen Porges and colleagues invented the PhysioCam to measure activation in the vagus nerve helping practitioners to apply his Polyvagal Theory to clinical practice
Deb Dana In Conversation About the PhysioCam
“Seeing what is happening in here replicated by this beautiful glowing ball, by the colours changing, it’s such an acknowledgement”. Watch Deb Dana discuss her work with early PhysioCam prototypes and her hopes for the future of this technology, both for therapists and clients.
Live Visual Feedback
Stephen Porges’ invention reads the nervous system without touching the body. It converts the body’s physiology into live data relating to the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. This live data is displayed to clinicians and clients during a therapy session using an ergonomic glowing ball which transitions from green, through amber, to red as the client’s nervous system activates in a session. The glowing ball provides an objective measure of activation for both therapist and client to work with.
The PhysioCam System
The PhysioCam consists of two balls about the size of a small volleyball and an optional app. One ball houses the camera and can sit freestanding on a shelf or desk behind or beside the therapist. The other ball can be held or sat on a table next to the client. The optional app will offer increased functionality during session and an option for the client to opt-in to recording and tracking their data over time.
