BreathConductor™ Demonstrates Anxiety Reduction in Children

Value of BreathConductor™ in Reducing Children’s Anxiety

We are pleased to announce that our paper, “The impact of a guided breathing audiovisual intervention on the anxiety symptoms in Palestinian children: a pilot randomized controlled trial“, has been published by The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

The study provided an opportunity to evaluate Muvik AI’s evidence-based BreathConductor™ digital therapy. An on-demand, guided breathing intervention, as a simple, effective, and efficient tool to reduce anxiety and its negative side effects.

In their daily environment, children in war torn areas experience stressors as a factor of war-related violence. The anxiety, and disruption, to which they are exposed can lead to increased levels of stress which negatively impacts their home, school, and individual routines. To assist these children mitigate anxiety, learn coping mechanisms, and build resilience, the Middle East Children’s Institute in partnership with Muvik AI, formulated this pilot study based on Muvik’s BreathConductor™ digital therapy.

144 students (6–10 years old) participating in MECI after-school program in the Levant region, were randomly assigned to the intervention or control condition. All participants completed a pre- and post-intervention measure of anxiety using the Revised Children’s Manifest Anxiety Scale. Participants in the intervention completed 24 sessions over 8 weeks and rated breathing ease as well as pre- and post-session relaxation on a 5-point Likert scale. To examine condition differences in post-intervention anxiety, four analyses of covariance were conducted, adjusting for age, sex, and pre-intervention anxiety.

Study results indicated that a guided, paced breathing audiovisual intervention was feasible and had a significant positive impact on anxiety symptoms in the children compared to a control condition. Additional research on adolescents enrolled in the MECI program is planned during the 2023 calendar year and will compare outcomes of BreathConductor™ technology versus mindfulness intervention.
