Meet uw levenskracht met dit apparaat met een wetenschappelijke basis!
Een origineel cadeau voor een verjaardag of voor professioneel gebruik door therapeuten.
The device is probably the world's most playful serious tool for improving your everyday energy level. You can use this small, handy instrument just for fun or to obtain objective measurements of your own life energy. Without even touching it, you can measure for yourself how your personal environment, your activities and your lifestyle influence your day to day vitality level.
The device is very simple to use and requires no training. The key component is a 70 mm wheel that rotates on a delicate pivot fueled by your life energy. Simply remove the plastic cover and cup one of your hands around the vitality meter, surrounding it as completely as possible with your fingers and palm. The wheel will rotate as you concentrate.
The switch on the left activates the electronic indicators that show the wheel's speed of rotation (rpm), a measure of your energy level. The two lights display the current rate of revolution and the maximum value achieved since the beginning of the measurement. The beeping sound that you hear as the wheel rotates can be used for biofeedback training or turned off.
The importance of life energy
"Life energy" has long been recognized by many cultures of the world but the physical properties of this phenomenon are still virtually unknown and unexplained. Experience show that a person's "vitality" level influences his/her state of health. Serious illnesses may follow if a low vitality level persist for a long period of time. On the other hand, a person whose bio-energy level is much higher than the average often displays long periods of enhanced physical and mental performances and above average endurance and stamina. The Wheel allows you to check, measure and increase your own vitality level. A persistent low energy level can serve as a warning that illness may be developing.
As you use it, you will soon find that the Wheel's rate of revolution depends on your physical and mental state and fluctuates along with your current fitness level and ability to concentrate. If you are very tired, you can expect a low rate of revolution. As you practice, you will learn how to tune in to the mental state which produces your maximum rate of revolution. This maximum value is the key. It is attained when your mind is in a relatively narrow range between complete relaxation and intense concentration. The easiest way to reach this state of mind, which is similar to a state of meditation, is to listen to your favorite music, imagine doing something you enjoy, or recall happy memories. Your body functions best in this mental state, and the reading is least prone to interference.
You should test both hands separately, and expect different rates for each. The wheel will also change directions as you change hands. With practice you can learn to direct the energy flowing from your body to change the direction of rotation at will.
The Wheel rates your "vitality quotient" or VQ from 0 to 400%. This is a relative value, comparing your measurement to an average of tests conducted on more than a thousand subjects ranging in age from 14 to 60. The average rpm of 6 is equal to a VQ of 100%. Unlike your intelligence quotient, your vitality quotient will differ greatly at different times. Tiredness or nervousness can result in reduced speeds. Other factors also influence your mood and state of mind - and your VQ level. An oncoming illness, weather fronts, cold or high temperatures can all cause your vitality level to be notably reduced. When these influencing factors change, your level should rise back up to normal. Significant variations occur from person to person depending on your build, mentality and lifestyle, so it is necessary to establish your own norm.
If your VQ level has been below 100% for a few weeks, this may not be cause for concern. However, it does give you a warning and an opportunity to work on improving your health and fitness.
The Wheel is normally only able to detect vitality at a short range. However, the VQ level of people with rare ability can be detected even at a distance of hundreds of millimeters. These exceptional individuals, who represent only a small proportion of the population, are able to rotate the wheel simply by pointing their fingers and "shooting" energy at it.

Instructions for use
This device is probably the most serious toy or the most playful serious thing you have ever seen. You can measure and increase your own life energy level. It is very simple to use, you can try it right now without even going through all the instructions.
1. Take off the transparent plastic cover. (First move it a little by pressing it down slightly with your thumb above the "WHEEL" inscription, then lift it carefully so as not to hurt the sensitive bearing of the wheel.)
2. Turn on the device with the switch on the left side. (In the middle position only the LEDs will indicate the rotation number of the wheel. If you move the switch further up, a beeping sound will also be heard.)
3. Put one of your hands around the vitality meter as you see on the pictures above. Try to surround it with your fingers and palm as much as possible. You can touch the device, but be careful not to touch the wheel.
4. Tighten your fingers slightly, relax and concentrate. The sensor wheel will start to rotate with a speed corresponding to your energy level. The electronic indicator will show your vitality level. One LED shows the maximum value you have reached since the beginning of the measurement, the other LEDs show the momentary rotation number of the wheel.
After trying it for a few minutes, you will notice that by using your willpower and being in a different state of mind you can influence the speed of the rotating wheel. It will change directions as you try it with each hand separately. Of course, to understand more precisely what is being measured it is useful to read the instructions. But first, it's worth trying the machine and playing with it for a while.
What is the device used for?
The energy of life has been known for a long time by many cultures of the world but its physics and its features even nowadays are practically unknown and unexplained. One of the aims of this device is that anybody can measure his/her own life energy, or vitality level which affects his/her state of health. Just for now this is the most important factor to us. The energy of life, or vitality, is the "fuel" of our organism and it can lead to serious illnesses if someone has a decreased level of it for a long period of time. On the other hand, the person whose bioenergy or vitality level is much higher than the average, is able to provide significant physical and mental performance for a long time. His/her endurance and stamina levels are above average. By using this device, everybody can check, measure and increase his/her own level of vitality in a most suitable way. This way also, dangerous periods can be felt and avoided in advance. The device helps to prevent illnesses and to make our health better according to our own personality and way of life. If you measure your vitality level regularly, it gives you a valuable personal guidance for your lifestyle: it helps to determine how much sport gives you an optimum vitality level, what sort of food is the best for you, whether have you got enough trace elements in your body, or if your sleeping pattern the best for you.
Usage of the device
The vitality meter should be used as shown above. Care should be taken to place the device only on a horizontal base or table, otherwise, it doesn't function well because the sensor wheel could get caught in the mechanism. If possible, use it only at room temperature. In cold or extremely hot weather, wrong results can be measured. Do not use it in drafty rooms as this can disturb the measuring procedure by turning the wheel without detection or measurement of your bioenergy. Strong light, e. g. sunshine or reading lamp, might disturb the electronic indicator.
The simplest bioenergy or vitality measuring can be done with our hands. Put one of your hands firmly around the device as seen above, tighten your fingers and muscles slightly. Bend your wrist as much as possible. Concentrate for a while and about 30-60 seconds later the wheel will start to rotate, generally in the directions of the fingers. For some, especially for left-handers, it can work the other way around in which case turning in the opposite direction from the fingers will occur.
After a short study we will feel that we can change the revolution number in accordance with our state of mind. It is best to make the first attempts alone without any interference.
We can see then that the revolution number of the wheel is greatly dependent on our fitness and concentrating abilities and always reflecting our present condition. Early in the morning, just after waking up or just before going to sleep, or when we are tired the revolution number and the value of our vitality is low. The greatest values usually can be expected to be measured during the morning period or early in the afternoon. It is very important to find and learn in which mental state you can reach the maximum value of revolution numbers. (We are always interested in this maximum value. It's like weight-lifting where the maximum value of weights you lift shows your capability.) This state can be achieved in between complete relaxation and intensive concentration, in a relatively narrow range. The easiest way to reach this state of mind, which is similar to a meditational state, is if we think about our favourite music or imagine an activity that we would be happy and relieved to do. This is the mental state where our body functions best, and where our problems do not interfere. This is when the greatest energy is generated in us and it shows up clearly in the results. It's worth trying it with both hands separately. Usually we'll experience that the outcome is different, some will find that the revolution number will be higher by trying it with the right hand and others will get higher results by using their left hand.
Don't make measurements too many times and for extended periods of time, vecause it may exhaust you (2-3 times a day for 10-15 minutes at most).
The measured value is called VQ, vitality quotient. This is a comparison value which shows how our actual bioenergy, or vitality level is in comparison with the average. Unlike the intelligence quotient, IQ, where there isn't a great difference between two people (even the measures are not exact), the vitality quotient can be measured objectively and differences can vary greatly. In some cases, the intelligence quotient can be influenced to be different for the same person. Tiredness or nervousness could make the results worse, but experiences show that by listening to pleasant music, the level of IQ might increase. Even more factors can influence the VQ level. (We will return to this in more detail later.) The table underneath shows the evaluation and the comparisons of the vitality quotients at our best form, maximum performance.

|These values are the results of the analysis of measurements carried out on more than a thousand people.
Period of incubation of illnesses, nervousness, worries or tiredness, weather fronts, cold weather or great heat strongly decrease the vitality level. But, when these are over, the level should become normal again. The above values correspond to people between the ages 14-60. Large differences could occur depending on your build, mentality and life habits.
Measuring the vitality can be done not only close to the hands (although that is the simplest and the most practical method) but also at the elbows, knees, legs or above the head. This device is only able to detect vitality from a short distance in most cases. But people having exceptional abilities can measure their VQ level even from a distance of some 10 cms. It's enough in these cases if someone looks at the device or "shoots" energy with the fingers towards it and the wheel will start to rotate. This can be achieved by only a few people. (Another device will be developed to measure distant effects which will be a much more complicated one, but simple to use.)
Summarizing the above we can say that the vitality quotient is our vitality value in comparison to the average value. The tests made on more than a thousand people show that the average value is around 6 revolutions/minute. This is what we consider the average persons' vitality level and this is when we say that somebody's vitality is a 100%. The vitality quotient shows the difference from the average, so if somebody's vitality quotient is 150% that means that the measured revolution number is 6x1.5 that equals 9 which is already a value above the average. On the other hand, if someone's vitality quotient is 50% the revolution number is 6x0.5, which equals 3 and this, unfortunately, is under the average. Of course, it is also interesting to measure how long this level can be kept by the individual, because it happens many times that although someone reaches a very high score, he/she will then get tired or, exhausted very quickly. Some people are able to hold a middle or a high vitality level, i. e. revolution number, for a very long time, even for half an hour. But, be careful not to measure yourself for a very long time, because it may exhaust you.
It's not our aim that someone should make measurements very often or all the time with this device, because this can be tiring. The main aim of the device is to offer help in making changes in our life, that will increase our vitality level substantially and help us to be healthier and more competitive. It's not a big trouble if our VQ level falls under 100% for a few weeks. We could be healthy still. It warns us take care of our health and to do as much as we can to bring our vitality at least up to the average level again.
In the following, we will summarize how the vitality can be increased and what effects make it increase or decrease.
How can the vitality be increased?
Let us see, in a nutshell, the most important factors that are affecting the level of our vitality, energy, productivity and competitiveness.
Probably the most important and simplest factor although only a few people know and appreciate the real importance of sleeping. Not only the number of hours we spend sleeping is important, but also when we sleep. The measurements we made so far have confirmed the old rule that the most useful is to start sleeping at 9 o'clock at night, or 10 o'clock at the latest, i.e. in the summer when the sun goes down. If we follow this natural ancient rhythm, the habit built into our organism during many hundreds of thousands of years will favourably affect our life. We will be able to rest much more efficiently than if we had started our sleep after midnight and continued to sleep during the day. This natural sleeping rhythm is much more restful and replenishing. The simplest way to improve our vitality level is by re-establishing our resting periods, so it's worth starting with this.
Another very important factor is to learn and use relaxation methods. Very old methods are available to replenish ourselves. The most ancient method may be Indian yoga, but in the Far-East in China methods have also been discovered which replenish us with the combination of breathing and special exercises like Chi-Kung. It's important that after a short period of time we learn how we can bring ourselves into a stress-free status and through this fill our body with energy. This can be done in a very short time, even in few minutes. (Numerous detailed books, descriptions can be found about breathing techniques and meditational states). Medical science or psychology nowadays can separate some functional phases of the brain. On EEG measurements the name of alpha state is used to indicate the mental state of relaxation and energy replenishment. This roughly means that 10-11 Hertz of frequency can be detected in our brain if we examine its electric activity. You can learn how to reach this mental state. For example, a simple easy-to-learn method is Silva's Mind Control. The ideal method could probably be a kind of combination of the mental and breathing techniques and according to our experiences this is the quickest way to replenish. This is the reason why even our posture will make a difference. It is very important to sit with a straight back so that our lungs can fill up with oxygen and allow our oxygen supply to be perfect. Hollow chests, stooping figure will make breathing and oxygen metabolism much more difficult and this will lead to low vitality level.
Sports are another type of relaxation and breathing exercise. We're also able to improve our vitality level by playing sports. It is important to know, though, that it is not useful all the time or to any extent. We are able to measure at what limit sports will recharge us, and over what extent it will be too tiring, where it decreases the vitality level dangerously by overdoing exercises. Ideal sports are: swimming, reasonable gymnastics, jogging, or tennis if it is done in fresh air.
The above viewpoints have considered the mental techniques and oxygen metabolism, so let us now examine other factors, or circumstances that are effecting our vitality values. A majority of it will depend on our eating and drinking habits.
It is best if you check whether you are getting the right quantity of vitamins. The best way to do this is eating many row fruits and vegetables. Only use artificial products if you are unable to get natural food. Many vitamin supplements are available, you can try and see if your vitality level increases after the intake. Sometimes the lack of one or two vitamins can significantly lower your VQ level which is the easiest to recover by taking these vitamins.
The following problem of nutrition is much more complicated but very important. The question is how to insure the proper supply of trace elements. In our body there are more than twenty thousand enzymes which regenerate our body and help our metabolism. The enzymes are indispensable parts of the process that breaks down food. They use very important trace elements in relatively small quantities to function.
In our food, we usually receive enough of the six main building bio-elements (hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, sodium, and potassium). There is a much greater problem in receiving and integrating the five auxiliary bio-elements (iron, magnesium, calcium, natrium, kalium). Illnesses can occur, for example, an iron deficiency which is quite frequent. Most of all the supply of bio trace elements can be a problem. Modern agriculture produces plants that lack the proper amount of trace elements that our bodies require. Being in favour of quantity rather than quality we receive enough nourishment in quantity, but loose out in trace elements. Industrial environmental pollution destroys our enzymes even if there were enough trace elements in our food. The heavy metals prevent trace elements to build in our body due to this, they are extremely dangerous. It's not enough just to receive the right amount of trace elements but it's also important in what kind of chemical bonds they enter our body. It is by no means all the same how many valences they have and in what compound they are built in.
Unfortunately, our present-day technical civilization produces extremely harmful substances that could end up in our body blocking and making impossible the utilization of important trace elements. As we have already mentioned the enzymes can only function properly if the right quantity (18) and quality of trace elements such as silicon, manganese, cobalt, copper, zinc, selenium, bromine, iodine, bismuth, etc. are available in our body.
But, some heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium prevent the above-mentioned trace elements from incorporating into in our bodies. They cause disorders in the metabolism and the synthesis of protein doesn't function. So, the build up of lead in our blood decreases the supply of oxygen, and it can cause permanent damage. It is very important to have enough supply of trace elements and vitamins especially for people who live in cities and in an industrial environment because of the air and soil pollution which cause our body to receive too much heavy metals. Unfortunately, in today's vegetables the quantity of heavy metals has increased dramatically. The thermal power stations have polluted the soil in many areas with acid in which case the right amount and right combination of trace elements can not be absorbed in the plants.
Therefore, if our VQ level is less than 100% for a long time, we have to try more trace element supplements for a longer period of time. This will allow the storage of trace elements to refill, and our enzymes and protein synthesis will improve. The quality of our enzymes is extremely important for our body's immune system. The stronger our immune system is, the higher our vitality level will be. We have experienced, during the tests, that people living in big cities and suffering iron deficiency or anemia, had their vitality level often around 50%, but with a proper and successful trace element therapy within a few weeks it rose above the level of 100%.
Good supply of vitamins are also important during a temporary vitamin deficiency. The best results can be achieved by a good supply of vitamin C. Vitamin C deficiency can be resolved within a few days and this can result in 20-30% increase in the VQ level. There isn't a uniform dose to suit everyone, we have to experiment with ourselves to tell which is the best daily dose. It depends on the pollution of our area, on our lifestyle, work load, and eating habits.
