Introduction to ZYTO Reports

Understanding ZYTO Reports can help you make better decisions for the health and wellness of your clients.

Why we measure

Just like a flight simulator allows a pilot to see how they may respond to various situations, ZYTO provides information as to how the body may respond to various “situations” or stimuli. These signals, which we call Virtual Items, are generated using ZYTO software.

Some of these Virtual Items may include:

Galvanic skin response (GSR) data is gathered from the ZYTO Hand Cradle. The software analyzes each response. Responses are gathered and displayed in reports. When paired with other tests and methods, these reports assist wellness professionals and their clients in making individualized wellness decisions.

What we measure

The ZYTO Hand Cradle measures and records GSR data. The ZYTO software analyzes how these responses vary from the baseline to determine biological coherence.

When the parts and pieces of a system work in harmony with one another, we call this coherence. The greater a system’s coherence, oftentimes the greater its efficiency. Measuring this signal of cooperation, or the lack thereof, provides understanding about what may increase or decrease efficiency.

How we measure

Just like a doctor uses a stethoscope to listen to a child’s breathing, ZYTO “listens” to the body’s subtle galvanic skin response using the ZYTO Hand Cradle. Through this connection, biocommunication can occur.

The process of measuring GSR data through the Hand Cradle and analyzing the data through the ZYTO software includes the following steps.

1. Determine Range

Each ZYTO scan measures responses to 35 neutral digital signals. The median response to this neutral stimulus becomes the range, or the parameter of the response to energetic stimulus in general. Once the range is established, Virtual Items in the ZYTO software can be compared to the parameters set in the range.

2. Evaluate Dynamic Baseline

Your body’s energetic state is constantly changing. For this reason, we take multiple galvanic skin response readings via the ZYTO Hand Cradle. The software analyzes these readings in relation to Virtual Items.

3. Send Stimulus

A Virtual Item is a unique digital code representing an actual itema food, product, service, organ, body system, etc. Just like a flight simulator mimics flying in real life, these items represent “situations” that we can analyze from the GSR data gathered by the ZYTO Hand Cradle.

4. Measure Response

The ZYTO software determines the coherence of each Virtual Item based on the GSR data gathered from the Hand Cradle. 

5. Calculate Deviation Ratio

The difference between the response and the baseline is calculated. The resulting calculation is the dR, or deviation ratio:

  • A positive number dR is assigned when the response was more coherent than the baseline, indicating biological coherence.
  • A negative number is assigned to a less coherent response, indicating biological aversion.
  • A 0 dR means the response was the same as its baseline reading, indicating a neutral response.

6. Plot Data

Responses can be sorted and displayed in a variety of ways to make comparisons and decisions during and after a scan is complete. To learn more about what information is displayed after a scan, click below.
