The research project 'the musical Score of the Body' or BodyScore, started more than six years ago and its goal is to find ways to stimulate health with music. To date the group has conducted studies to map the reactions to music in the heart and the Autonomous Nervous System. They have been searching for ways to use music as a tool to handle stress. They found a method to guide the breathing with specially designed music which has a soothing effect on the Heart Rate Variability and the whole Autonomic Nervous System.

An italian study has shown that music guided breathing can reduce Hypertension. Studies at the University of Gothenburg have showed that Music Guided Breathing can relieve symptoms of heart failure. HRV is also an indicator of psychological resiliency and behavioral flexibility, reflecting the individual's capacity to adapt effectively to changing social or environmental demands (Beauchaine, 2001Berntson et al., 2008)

We are studying if this app can help patients with heart attack (myocardial infarction), heart failure, and 'Broken Heart Syndrome' at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.
