What Is a Readiness Score?
Simply put, a readiness score tells you how ready you are for the current day. Your readiness score is like a window into how you’ll handle the day’s mental, emotional, and physical stressors. It’s based on a scale of 0-100 and is divided into 3 intervals.
Your readiness score is going to give you insights into how you’ll handle daily stressors and help you recover in a more efficient way. Depending on the interval into which your score falls, you’ll be able to anticipate the day better. A lower score will signal to you that you should go easier on yourself, physically and mentally. A higher score means you can push yourself harder.
How Is My Score Calculated?
Ivy calculates your readiness score based on your unique physiological parameters such as resting heart rate, respiratory rate, and cardiac coherence. All of these parameters are collected during deep sleep, which is your calmest state of sleep. To calculate the readiness score it is necessary to define your typical range of physiological parameters. This range we call baseline, you can think of your baseline as your body’s own fingerprint. After three days of data collection, you’ll get a readiness score but that is a general reading. First meaningful readiness data are obtained after 7 days when the initial baseline is set. Your readiness score will become more accurate over time as Ivy collects more data about you. To fully calibrate your baseline and get more reliable readiness score results you must wear your Ivy for 30 nights.
What Physiological Parameters make up my wellness score?
- Resting Heart Rate (RHR) - This tells you the number of times your heart beats per minute during a period of rest, such as sleeping. It’s measured in beats per minute, or bpm.
- Respiratory Rate (RR) - This will show you the number of breaths you take per minute. It’s measured in reparations per minute, or rpm.
- Cardiac Coherence (CC) - This parameter shows you how well your heart rate variability and breathing rate are synchronized.
What Are Readiness Intervals?
Readiness intervals are the ranges in which your readiness score lies. There are 3 intervals and they give you a general idea of how your body is recovering. These intervals are:
- 100-75 - You’re in tip-top shape and ready to tackle even the most demanding of days.
- 74-50 - You’re maintaining well and can take on the day with relative ease.
- 49-0 - You should slow down and rest to allow your body to recover.
What Do My Trends Mean?
The trends below the readiness score show you a general direction in which your physiological parameters are changing. More precisely, you can compare the average value of today (last night) versus the average of the last 7 days.
