The Basics

Reflect is a handheld soft Orb that uses biofeedback to help you teach yourself to relax. The Reflect Orb collects physiological signals from the tip of your fingers, processes them, and reflects your mental state back to you with a glowing light ring that changes colors in response to your stress levels. Over time and with continuous use, practicing with Reflect will give you better control over your stress and anxiety, and improve your wellbeing across the board.

The Reflect Orb measures and analyzes your body’s physiological signals and provides a continuous visual indication of your mental state. The calmer you are, the more likely the light ring will turn white. This feedback helps you guide yourself towards a more calm state.

Light Indications
Tense is Purple
Alert is Blue
Relaxed is Turquoise
Calm is White

The Reflect App is a companion to The Orb, augmenting your experience with data and insights while deepening your understanding of your journey towards relaxation. Through The App, you will be able to track your stress levels during your sessions with The Orb on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. Download the app here.

A Reflect practice does not require the app. In fact, you need both your hands for the practice, so no phones! After your session with the Orb, your practice data is synced in the app. This will allow you to see the impact of your practice with graphs and charts that are reflecting your personal practice. The App is a tool for self-reflection that can be used after each of your sessions and does not need to be used in conjunction with the Orb to begin a session.

The Science Behind Reflect

Reflect uses biofeedback to measure physiological signals that indicate stress, which includes HRV (Heart Rate Variability) and EDA (ElectroDermal Activity). These signals are measured through biofeedback sensors where you hold your fingers on the Orb.

Biofeedback is a scientifically proven method used to improve physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Physiological signals such as heart rate, body temperature, and skin conductance are measured and presented to you in real-time, and through tracking your progress, you can learn how to regulate them.

With the help of Reflect’s biofeedback-driven experience, you can become more aware of your body’s physiological stress responses and learn to better manage your stress. Over time, you can improve your control over your personal wellbeing.

To learn more, take a deep dive into biofeedback with us.

Biofeedback brings unconscious physiological processes into your consciousness. Biofeedback devices monitor your body’s mental and physical states. By becoming more aware of what your body is doing in real-time (such as reacting to stress), you can learn to influence your reactions. 

For example: Many of us know that when we are that when we are stressed we get sweaty palms. The level of sweat in our palms is a very accurate indicator of our stress levels. Even the most minor changes, changes we can’t even notice, are significant in telling us how much stress we are in. Thus, more stress = more sweat.

Some biofeedback devices, such as Reflect, measure our “sweaty palms” which is scientifically known as EDA (Electro-Dermal Activity). This measurement shows us how stressed we are through various mediums (in Reflect’s case, with changing light colors). Once we are able to see this previously hidden process, we learn to control it. The magic here is that it works both ways. Not only does more stress cause more sweat, but if you reduce your EDA (read: sweat) ~ you can reduce stress.

Reflect brings biofeedback into your comfort zone with a small, soft orb that you can use anywhere – at home, in the office, or on vacation. The Orb is measuring two physiological signs of stress and anxiety – Heart Rate Variability and Electrodermal Activity. There are light indications on the Orb to guide you towards awareness of your body’s physical, mental, and emotional levels; a soft light on top of the Orb changes from purple to blue to white to show you your body’s changes towards calmness. After each session, data is loaded into the application, allowing you to track your progress and further understand how to manage stress. Wherever life takes you, easily take Reflect to sneak in a few minutes of relaxation practice into your busy schedule.

Usage & Benefits

Using the Reflect Orb is simple: sit in a comfortable position and hold it in your hands. You can put on relaxing music, pair it with a guided meditation or simply focus on your senses during each session. As sessions are personalized, feel free to sit with the Orb for as long you wish ~ from a few minutes to over an hour. Once you’ve finished, check-in with the app to get more details about your mental state during the session to better understand your levels of relaxation and overall personal progress.

The Reflect App tracks your journey with Reflect and helps you understand the tangible impact of your meditation practice. 

Once linked to your Reflect Orb, you can track and analyze your progress, log details about sessions, journal your thoughts, and more. 

The Reflect App also provides tips for relaxation, meditation reminders, and encouragements to support you on your personal wellbeing journey.

Using Reflect is about your personal wellbeing journey, not about results. We know that this journey is not always a straight line – some days it’s easier to focus, some days are more stressful.

Are you a creature of habit that needs some meditation space in the morning? Do you prefer to take some time during your busy day to pause and do breathing exercises? Do you need time to settle down and create a calming environment before going to sleep? Reflect is here to empower your version of wellbeing, no matter how you go about it.

Reflect helps you carve out “me time” during your day to find focus and bring more relaxation into your life. When you take time to pause, breathe and decompress more regularly, you begin to see the long-lasting benefits to your mental, physical and emotional health.

The Reflect experience is based on biofeedback ~ a scientific therapy method that is regularly used to help people who suffer from anxiety with learning how to regulate their physiological anxious responses. Reflect helps you shut out the noise of the world so you can take a pause during your day when you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed. All you need is your Reflect Orb and a quiet, comfortable spot where you can relax your mind.

Reflect is an easy way to insert mindful moments into your life on a daily basis, and is adaptable to your needs and routine. 

The Orb is portable, and sessions can be as short as a few minutes or as long as you need. You can also use the app to set notifications to set aside time in your day for self-reflection. Essentially, it’s a unique biofeedback device that can be used when and where you need it most.

Reflect & Meditation

Absolutely! Reflect is a great biofeedback device to guide you on your meditation journey.

The Orb will help you become more aware of your body and mind, and provide immediate feedback on the impact of your practice. 

The companion app will help you track and analyze your progress, log details about sessions, journal your thoughts, and more.

Reflect is based on biofeedback – a scientifically proven method to improve mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing.

When using Reflect you’ll be able to see and understand how your body reacts to your relaxation practice with concrete, detailed analytics.

If you choose to meditate during your sessions, you don’t need to adhere to a specific type of meditation. You can even combine it with existing meditation apps such as Headspace or Calm.

You can use Reflect with both guided and unguided meditation. 

If you’re already using a meditation app such as Headspace or Calm, Reflect is the ideal biofeedback device to have as a companion on your meditation journey.

Not only does holding your Orb help your focus, but it can also show you the impact of your meditation in a tangible way.

However, meditation is not a must-do! If you prefer, you can sit in your Reflect sessions without guidance. Just hold the Orb in your hands, and practice your own way.

Troubleshooting

Check your spam folder – it should be there. If not, try signing up with a different email address or contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

If you can’t find your WiFi network name when you set up your Orb, it means your router doesn’t transmit at the right frequency. The fix for each router make and model is different, so we can’t cover all of them here.

What to do?
1. Google your router make and model and “how to turn on 2.4GHz Network Band”
2. Talk to your Internet provider and ask them how to turn on 2.4GHz network band.
3. Talk to us, and we’ll try to help – email support@meetreflect.com and we’ll set up a troubleshooting session.

  1. Go to Settings, to get there click the 2 bars in the top right corner of your application screen
  2. Go to Device Info
  3. Click ‘Unpair’ in the bottom left corner of the screen to change the user

Check the setting of the Wi-Fi router. The Orb only works with 2.4HZ. If the setting of the Wi-Fi router is 5GHZ, please change the setting on the router or call the network provider to change it.

Your Orb is low on battery or completely out of battery. Your Orb needs to be plugged into the charger for a few hours until it is sufficiently charged.

Your fingers are not being recognized on the electrodes. To solve this, gently clean the electrodes with a dry cloth.

Try plugging it into a charging cable and letting it charge for a few hours. If there is still no response, contact Support: support@meetreflect.com.

After you conduct a session, you should see a blue spinning light on the Orb. This means that the device is trying to upload information from your session to the app. If you see three, fast lights blink in blue, this means there is a problem with your Wi-Fi connection – your Wi-Fi network may not be in range, or the password was wrong. Set a Wi-Fi connection through the Reflect Settings screen.

  1. Go to Settings, to get there click the 2 bars in the top right corner of your application screen
  2. Go to Reflect Settings
  3. Click Wi-Fi to see which networks your Orb is connected to or to connect to a different network

Please ensure Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile device and your Location Settings are turned On. If you’re not sure how to do that, here are a few helpful links:

Enable Bluetooth on iPhone

Enable Bluetooth on Android

Please ensure Wi-Fi is enabled on your mobile device and there is a working Wi-Fi network within reach.

Enable Wi-Fi on iPhone

Enable Wi-Fi on Android

There are a couple reasons your Orb fails to connect to the Wi-Fi network that was chosen:

1. The Wi-Fi password you are entering may be wrong, please ensure you are entering the right Wi-Fi password.

2. The Wi-Fi router setting is 5GHZ, and the Orb only works with 2.4HZ. You will need to manually change the setting on the router or call the network provider to change it.

  1. The Orb is not plugged into the charger.
  2.  The Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection had a disruption or turned off in the middle of the pairing process.
  3. The phone and Orb disconnect during the pairing process. This can happen if:
    • The phone is not in close enough to the Orb
    • There are a lot of Bluetooth devices in the area
    • The Orb is in a different room than the phone –  i.e there is a wall separating the two
    • There is a vast amount of micro-length digital noise in the room where you are trying to pair (i.e. an old microwave is in use in the house)

If you receive this message during the onboarding process, please contact support@meetreflect.com, so we can unpair your device for you.
