Equivital featured in BBC's Horizon The Power of Placebo

During BBC's Horizon The Power of Placebo subjects in the Italian Alps are monitored when provided with oxygen and a placebo fake oxygen.

Equivital systems help to provide objective phsyiological data in real world environments to answer the following questions:

What happens to the body and brain when you experience the placebo effect?

As well as the real oxygen, does the fake oxygen also cause real changes in the body?

Does change occur when the subject expects oxygen and doesn’t actually receive it?


Equivital systems are featured from 15 minutes to 23 minutes of the program.
