Applications & Software
LOTOS is indispensable in the routine of monitoring the health status in case of ambulatory treatment, as well as in patients who take nutritional supplements or undergo organism purification, fasting therapy, manual reflex- and hirudotherapy.
Constant surveillance of health status is also necessary when conducting weight reduction courses.
When using home physiotherapeutic devices, LOTOS permits not only to control health status, but also to choose time, duration and periodicity of exposure.
Application of the device is effective for permanent health control of professional sportsmen and for those who regularly attend fitness centers. In this case regular surveys permit to make an individual choice of the intensity and duration of physical exercise.
It should be added that LOTOS can be used to show the effect of nutritional supplements and dietary cure products.
Prompt survey of patients’ health status permits to choose necessary medications in an effective way, while patients have an opportunity of controlling the treatment process. This circumstance has a positive effect on moral and psychological state of an examined person and builds his trust in the selected therapy, products, doctor and himself.
The program window is nominally divided into two fields: List of Patients and Patient Survey Results.
Panel displaying survey Results of currently selected patient is situated on top of the window. This panel is basically a set of several tabs. Buttons at the top of the panel are used to switch between them. In total there are seven tabs:
Registration and Viewing of ECG Data contains the control elements for record and display of the patient’s electrocardiogram
Vegetative Regulation tab displays the assessment of the organism Vegetative regulation by methods of heart rhythm variance analysis
Neurohumoral Regulation tab serves to display the hormonal regulation assessment by means of neurodynamic analysis
Psychoemotional State tab displays the psychoemotional state assessment by means of brain biorhythm mapping
Fractal Analysis tab displays the assessment of the body’s adaptation level and is used to determine biological age by means of fractal analysis
Complex Analysis tab displays the organism functional state
Dynamics of Functional Condition tab displays the dynamics of the change of functional state indices over a period of time
At the top right-hand corner of LOTOS window is located the button which serves to visualize the program information, as well as the button used to visualize the reference information.
ECG Registration signals
As a function of the selected operation mode, the program displays either an ECG signal registered previously in the course of the survey, or the ECG signal recorded momentarily. The time in minutes and seconds elapsed from the registration start is laid off along the horizontal axis, while the ECG amplitude is laid off along the vertical axis. The graph scaling is performed by moving the mouse with the right button pressed. Dragging the graph is performed by moving the mouse with the left button pressed.
Depending on selected operation mode the program displays either a previously registered rhythmogram, or the one being registered at the moment. Rhythmogram is a graph where the number of RR intervals is plotted on the horizontal axis while the interval size in seconds is plotted on the vertical axis. RR interval is a time interval between two heart beats.
The artifacts – extra systoles and disturbances – are highlighted at the rhythmogram in red. The graph scaling is performed by the right mouse button while the graph dragging is performed by the left mouse button.
Dynamics of Functional Condition During the Recording
The Graph of the Dynamics of Functional Condition during the Recording demonstrates how the functional state indices varied in the course of the survey. It enables to estimate the reliability of the survey results.
Dynamics of Functional Condition
If the functional condition remains on the same level throughout the survey, it means that the survey was conducted correctly and its results are reliable. If however, the graph of functional condition has abrupt level drops, it means that either the patient was not at rest during the survey, or that the ECG signal arriving from the patient was affected by extraneous disturbances. It is worthwhile conducting a duplicate recording, having previously removed the factors which have a negative impact on the quality of the recorded ECG signal.
The button serves to switch the graph back to the rhythmogram display mode.
Functional status Indicators
The indicators display the normalized values of functional status indices:
“А” – level of organism adaptation
“В” – level vegetative regulation index
“С” – neurohumoral regulation index
“D” – psychoemotional state index
“Health” – complex state index
The Vegetative Regulation, the Neurohumoral Regulation, the Psychoemotional State, the Fractal Analysis and the Complex Analysis Tabs
These tabs display a detailed information of the patient’s functional state. They are organized in accordance with the same principle and differ only by the information displayed.
Each tab is nominally divided into two hemi-sections – the left and the right one. In each tab’s hemi-section are displayed parameters related to one of previously conducted surveys. By using the controls at the top of the tab you can select the survey data. Thus the dynamics of functional status changes can be assessed in a quick, easy and demonstrable way.
In each tab two functional parameters are displayed:
- In the Fractal Analysis tab – fractal portrait of biorhythms and Gerontological curve
- In the Vegetative Regulation tab – histogram of RR intervals and autocorrelation portrait
- In the Neurohumoral Regulation tab – neurodynamic matrix and energy pyramid
- In the Psychoemotional State tab – spline-map of electrical activity of the brain and spectrum of brain activity
- In the Complex Analysis tab – functional status indices and complex state index.
By pressing the button in the window of a selected parameter, can be visualized each functional parameter’s descriptive statement.
The Vegetative Regulation Tab
The Vegetative Regulation Tab displays information on patient’s vegetative regulation parameters. Vegetative regulation is performed by the vegetative nervous system (autonomic nervous system or ANS) which regulates the physiological processes below the level of human consciousness. It promptly reacts to the changes of internal and external environment by influencing the cardiovascular system whose effective work determines the supply of nutrients and oxygen.
Histogram of «R-R» intervals is a diagram representing a correlation of the number of «R-R» intervals in different time intervals of their duration. Along the horizontal axis the duration of «R-R» intervals is plotted, while along the vertical axis is plotted the probability of their occurrence (i.e. the number of «R-R» intervals within the respective range). The histogram interval is 0.04 seconds. The range of the histogram base is from 0.32 to 1.64 seconds. Vegetative balance is characterized by central position of the bars with localization of the highest bar within the range of 0.7–1.0 s. In case of prevailing influence of the sympathetic activity, a significant shift to the left is observed, as well as a narrowing of the histogram base. In case of parasympathetic dominance, the opposite effect is observed.
Vegetative Regulative Tab
Auto-correlation portrait characterizes the degree of similarity of different rhythmogram fragments.Vegetative balance index defines the relation between the activity of sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of vegetative nervous system.
The Neurohumoral Regulation Tab
The Neurohumoral system regulates the composition and the structure of biochemical substances in the organism, ensuring the constancy of internal environment and adaptation of organism to changing living conditions in the long-term period.
The structure of physiological rhythms is represented in the form of neurodynamic matrix, each element of which characterizes the corresponding rhythms’ dynamics. Individual matrix elements represent the rhythms of the corresponding organism systems while the color of each element indicates to what extent the parameters of these rhythms correspond to the common universal law of living nature activity, namely the law of two exponents. The “ideal exponent” parameters are in conformity with the “golden ratio”. Compliance with these parameters ensures the maximum effective work of life-support systems at minimum energy costs.Yellow and red colors of matrix elements indicate that the parameters of the rhythm are far from being optimal.
The Neurohumoral Regulation
Neurohumoral Regulation Index characterizes the effectiveness of the nervous system’s functioning and indicates how optimally the organism uses its energy and physiological resources. Neurohumoral regulation system is responsible for constancy of internal environment and adaptation of the organism to changing living conditions.
Energy Pyramid characterizes the total of organism’s physiological resources and the balance between the cycles of resources accumulation and consumption under the present life conditions. Correlation between the left and the right sections of the “pyramid” characterizes the dynamics of anabolic and catabolic processes going on in the body. The pyramid’s blue area is proportionate to the resources recovery time while the pyramid’s red area is proportionate to the resources consumption time.
The Psycho-emotional State Tab
Spline-map is a result of spline-interpolation of peak values of the main brain rhythms. Spline maps of electrical activity of the brain are a set of bivariate distribution of central nervous system (CNS) rhythms in the functional spaces of the brain and characterize the integral activity of CNS in these spaces.
Spline map of electrical activity
Areas of black and yellow-red color range indicate the hypoactivity of the brain as a result of disease state, over fatigue and stress.
Psychoemotional state index defines the degree of devastating effect of stress on the body.
Frequency spectrum of the brain activity is obtained by means of translation of heart rhythms to the frequency range of brain rhythms. Obtained spectrum is divided into ranges corresponding to the frequencies of delta, theta, alfa, beta and gamma rhythms. Equal distribution of rhythms over the entire frequency range corresponds to the normal state. Predominance of delta rhythm is indicative of disease state, over-fatigue and stress.
Brain activity spectrum
The Fractal Analysis Tab
In the Fractal Analysis Tab are displayed information about the fractal analysis of the patient’s status. Fractal analysis is designed to visually assess the degree of organs biorhythms harmonization, knowing that organs have a fractal structure; the purpose of this survey is the detection of functional and pathological changes and the assessment of the organism’s immune status, as well as predicting patient’s health state changes.
Fractal analysis enables to reveal similarity and regularities in dynamic parameters of rhythms which characterize physiological processes in the human organism. During the analysis of electrocardiogram are singled out the rhythms which have a fractal structure, manifesting in the form of universal reactions to external and internal influences. The degree of concordance of these rhythms determines the quality of life activity at a given moment. The capacity to maintain and preserve this harmony during a long period of time reflects the quality of organism’s capacities of adaptation to changing external and internal environment conditions or its “immunity”.
Fractal portrait index shows organism’s immune system status demonstrating its capacity of adaptation to new conditions. Fractal portrait represents a solution of Mandelbrot’s equation; these parameters are the dynamic parameters of ECG. Fractal portrait characterizes the level of harmonization of physiological rhythms and proves how the organs and the systems of the body function.
Fractal harmony of biorhythms at all the regulation levels indicates large energy resources, optimal balance of energy supplies and favorable prognosis regarding health state changes. Partial disharmony of biorhythms in certain organs and systems of the body is indicative of functional abnormalities in those organs.
Decrease of energy resources and degradation of energy balance is characterized by disturbance of biorhythms’ fractal harmony, which corresponds to serious functional disturbances or to pathological changes in individual organs.
Level of harmonization of biorhythms characterizes the level of consistency of regulatory systems, reflects the quality of organism’s capacities of adaptation to changing conditions and is also an information index characterizing immune system status.
Fractal portrait analysis
Gerontological curve reflects the slowest biological rhythm. Its period is determined by life expectancy of 90-110 years. It is a graphic representation of correlation between the ratio of life resources accumulation and consumption and is a combination of logarithmic and exponential curves. Gerontological curves correlations correspond to the parameters of “golden section”. The nominal “point” where accumulation of life resources turns into their slow consumption corresponds approximately to the age of 30-33 calendar years.
People may be younger or older than their age; as a result, the diseases and death related to ageing occur at different age. Consequently, the true age of a person is determined not by time which has elapsed since his or her birth, but by the factors which reflect his or her vitality. It is the body’s vitality level which is defined as biological age. Biological age represents systemic disintegration of organism in the process of ageing.
Using the concept of “Gerontological curve” we can determine biological and true age of a person, which as a rule does not coincide with the calendar age, for the better or for the worse.
Gerontological curve is obtained by means of statistical analysis of biorhythms in more than 10000 patients of different age groups. It is a graphic representation of accumulation and consumption of life resources in the body of average person and corresponds to the life cycle which lasts 100 calendar years.
Integral health index is proportional to the level of life resources. By marking this index on ordinate axis and projecting it on the model Gerontological curve, we obtain the point of patient’s “biological age”. Projection of this point on abscissa axis is exactly the “biological age” in the customary sense of calendar measurement.
The Complex Analysis Tab
Complex State Index is a quintessence of all the previous indices and is a symbolic mathematical representation of “patient’s health status”. It helps to assess the overall quality of the body’s physiological processes and the level of their balance. “Health level” is in fact the level of tensions which the body’s regulatory systems need in order to get into harmony with life environment.
The thin blue disc in the Diagram of Complex State Index indicates the standard for an average patient of this age, while the practically measured health index can rank above or below the standard level. In the top left corner of the diagram the difference between the actual and the average value is displayed.
The Dynamics of Functional Condition Tab
In the Dynamics of Functional Condition Tab is displayed the process of changes of functional status indices with the course of time.
Dynamics of functional condition
At the top of the tab two elements of date management are situated can be used to indicate the analyzed period. By default, no more than ten last surveys are analyzed.
Dynamics of functional condition
The results of all the analyzed surveys are displayed in the graph “Dynamics of Functional Condition”. The buttons at the upper right of the graph allow to conceal or to display corresponding parameter at the graph.
By means of the left mouse button one of surveys can be selected on the graph so as to visualize more detailed information on it. The currently selected survey is highlighted with yellow vertical bar.
Forecast Patient state
Date and time of the survey, heart rhythm during the survey and values of functional state indices are displayed. Additionally, a daily forecast of patient’s is made on the base of the results for the selected analysis state. The accurateness of prediction depends directly on the number of surveys analyzed. Surveys conducted more than one month ago are not taken into consideration in forecast calculation.
At the bottom of the Dynamics tab are located dates of surveys. The highlight color characterizes the patient’s state on that day. In case several surveys were conducted on same day, the highlight color will correspond to the averaged value of patient’s state. Clicking with the left mouse button on the highlighted date permits to choose the respective survey at the graph “Dynamics of Functional Condition”.

Assessment of treatment efficiency
Assessment of Treatment Efficiency can be performed by means of express control as well as by means of long-term observation.
The express control method is applied in such treatments where the effect of treatment exposure can be immediately perceivable.
First initial indices are measured in patient, then the patient is exposed to therapeutic intervention of any kind (fast-acting medication intake, physiotherapy, reflex therapy, etc.) and immediately after the therapy exposure repeated measurement of indices is performed.
Repeated survey results are compared to the initial survey; if the functional state has improved, the therapeutic intervention has had a positive effect. Therapeutic effects might start the organism’s recovery process, in this case deterioration of indices takes place as the body needs forces to combat the disease. If after the therapeutic treatment the indices have deteriorated, it is recommended to wait for 24 hours and then conduct measurement for the third time.
Long-term observation is applied with a view of regular control of functional status of the patient under treatment. Before starting the course, it is necessary to gauge the initial indices as well, and then conduct periodically surveys. To obtain objective data it is desirable, that all the surveys are conducted at the same time and at regular intervals.
