   What's this?


*Open Box Lightstone Sensors - Sensors Out of Stock Worldwide

Wild Divine has discontinued production of IOM Pro and Lightstone sensors. Many clinicians prefer Wild Divine sensors as they provide both heart rate and skin sweat in a simple and easy to use package. Somatic Vision has a large inventory of open box / gently used Lightstone sensors still available for sale for use with Alive. All Lighstone sensors have been fully tested and come with a 90-day warranty.

Somatic Vision now also bundles Alive Pioneer with the GP8 Amp, a professional amplifier that measures heart rate, skin conductance (GSR), muscle tension (EMG) and temperature.

the computer

Alive is not just about computer training. Your Alive User Guide includes the multi-disciplinary Alive & Beyond 8-Week Program.

The Alive & Beyond 8-Week Program has been developed to help people get the most out of Alive, bringing in off-screen concepts and exercises to complement the Alive software.

In your clinical practice, you are likely to choose instead to incorporate Alive with your existing training protocols for treating various conditions. The Clinical User Guide supplement contains many tips and tricks for using the advanced Graph Training features in Alive to create desired outcomes.

Behind Alive

Alive is the brainchild of Ryan Deluz, a software engineer with a background in biology. Ryan's vision to bring a liveliness and ease-of-use to innovative and powerful self-regulating tools — and his passion for his work —are at the core of Alive.

Alive & Beyond — and much of the Alive software itself — was developed in partnership with Yuval Oded, a cognitive behavioral psychologist and leading expert in biofeedback. Yuval also authored the Clinical Version User Guide Supplement.

Yuval, a consultant to the French Ministry of Defense, is a Clinical Psychologist who has developed biofeedback programs to help military personnel keep a clear head, suppress unhelpful responses to difficult situations, and manage an array of decisions and tasks. In his clinics, Yuval treats a wide array of conditions, including anxiety disorders, behavioral disorders, chronic illnesses, neurological problems, psychosomatic problems, head trauma and post traumatic stress disorder.

The Alive Coach

Diagnostics, educational resources, progress tracking, and a virtual coach to teach you techniques for breathing to lower and smooth heart rate, how to interpret your body data, and to suggest a program for meeting your goals.

As you play the Alive Games and explore the Environments, the Coach stays with you throughout the entire experience, evaluating your progress, and helping you maximize the effectiveness of Alive — suggesting alternative programs and approaches as you play.

Alive Games

The most fun part of Alive. Includes Dual Drive Pro Manual, Dual Drive Pro Autopilot, and an assortment of Alive Mini Games, including:

  • Dream House— Build a dream house from the ground up, beginning in the morning and finishing by parking your car in the new garage at sundown.
  • Green Thumb — Make a gorgeous hyacinth bloom and wow you with its showy ultramarine flowers
  • Four Seasons — Propel a natural scene through all four seasons, enjoying spring showers, lush summer foliage, fall thunderstorms and the bare beauty of winter.
  • Alien Shuttle — Complete your alien mission by finding your way to the docking station in the mothership.
  • Night Flight — Enjoy navigating through a twinkling and busy cityscape.

Alive Environments

For training and development. Gorgeous visual environments to explore as you pace your breathing and smooth your heart rate include:

  • Alive Environments Breath Spiral — Move shiny particles in a 3D space as you inhale and exhale. Paced breathing creates a smoother heart and expands a disc of particles into spiraling waves.
  • Alive Environments Shape Shifter — The smoother your heart rate, the brighter a geometric shape becomes. Keep it smooth to see it morph into new forms.
  • Alive Environments Metal Pulse — Use paced breathing to turn undulating waves from orange to an intense blue.
  • Alive Environments Plasma — Use the pacer on the screen to smooth your heart rate and make undulating plasma appear. Slow the plasma by dropping your heart rate.
  • Alive Environments Tropical Ocean — Relax to make the wind blow the palm fronds and the wave sounds intensify.
  • Alive Audio Environments — Close your eyes, sink back into your chair, and breathe to smooth your heart rate. The more even your heart rate changes are, the more enveloping the music and relaxing sounds become. Choose from Rain, Stream, Waves, and Memory.

Alive Active Feedback Hardware

For use with all Somatic Vision games and tools. Captures skin conductance data and heart rate variations and sends them to the Alive interactive interface.
