1. Recovery Assessment
Your Mindset Recovery assessment is an overall measure of your level of recovery starting with a subjective rating of your level of relaxation before and after the session based on a 10 point scale where 1 = Not Relaxed and 10=Extremely Relaxed. Pay close attention to any changes in your subjective assessment score as this is at least as accurate, if not more, than any biometric sensor data. If you choose to wear a heart rate strap during the recovery session, the Rewire system will also measure your average resting heart rate and HRV. These heart rate metrics will be compared against your baseline from prior sessions so that you can see any upward or downward trends in your recovery.
2. Recovery Summary
Your Recovery Summary provides key subjective and objective metrics that are then compared to your baseline average from prior sessions to indicate any upward or downward trends including:
- Relaxation: Based on the subjective rating of your level of relaxation before and after the session
- Heart Rate: Your average heart rate during the session
- HR Range: Your highest and lowest heart rate during the session
- rMMSD: The based HRV calculation which stands for the root mean square of successive differences. We provide this baseline data so that is can be compared with other HRV measurement tools and apps independent of Rewire’s scale factor.
- InrMMSD: Known as the vagal-HRV index. rMSSD does not chart in a linear fashion, so it is common practice to apply a natural logarithm to make the rMSSD value more readable. We provide this information so that it can be compared to other HRV measurement tools and apps independent of Rewire’s scale factor. To convert your raw InrMMSD value to a different scale factor you simply multiple the InrMMSD value X the scale factor. In Rewire’s case, we use a scale factor of 15.3 which converts well to a numerical scale that ranges between 0-140 HRV.
- HRV: Heart rate variability is the measure of the beat-to-beat variability between heartbeats. Known as a very reliable measure of both physiological and psychological stress it is used as a standard metric for training across most sports. Rewire uses the gold standard calculation for HRV known as rMSSD which stands for the root mean square of successive differences. This is the same standard used by many well-known HRV apps and tools though it is useful to note that there is no standard for the scale factor applied to HRV which is why from app-to-app the measurements are slightly different. You may also override the Rewire’s HRV calculation by syncing to Apple Health or Google Fit and selecting the “Use HRV data from this source” found under integration settings.

3. Recovery Intervals
Recovery Intervals provide a useful way to identify which type of protocol(s) are most helpful to you in terms of maximizing rest and recovery. We recommend trying some Mindset Recovery sessions while wearing a heart rate monitor so that you can look at the breakdown per interval/protocol including:
- Time: Duration in seconds
- Sets: Number of times the protocol is repeated in an interval e.g. 4 complete box-breaths in guided breathing etc.
- HR: Average heart rate during the interval (displayed when intervals are ≥30 seconds)
- HRV: HRV score during the interval (displayed when intervals are ≥60 seconds)
