Why is it FREE to use?

Over the past thirty years I have desired to know if there was a quantifiable method to show the care delivered in my profession changed the level of health. Even though metrics can imply cardio-vagal and other changes post-intervention, is there an increased level of coordination (complexity) behind those changes, or is it increased randomness? While many algorithms have been derived to approximate complexity analysis, for various reasons, they have fallen short of the level of certainty required to truly answer such questions.

The need for a way to quantify those differences between a healthier state and its loss—irrespective of symptoms—set me on a path to find an answer. Most recently, three entropy algorithms showed extremely reliable results in published research. After trying in vain to find these algorithms available, I set out to make certain they become available, not just for my purposes, but for researchers around the world who seek answers to the questions of health and its loss.

It became obvious that this work must be made as accessible as possible so that a new age of research might be discovered.
That means....FREE.

It is my hope you find this as valuable as recent research has shown them to be.

Club on the steering wheel, Chauffeur, or Chimpanzee?

In much published research there has been a trend to describe increased variability as being healthy. Sadly, this is absolutely not necessarily the case. Studies have shown that medically-diagnosed states from eating disorders to nocturnal enuresis have INCREASED heart rate variability compared to similar healthy control groups. The three metrics made available here are unique in that they have shown an adeptness at separating rigid periodicity (elderly subjects and/or overt pathology), from complex variability (young healthy subjects), as well as from random periodicity (arrhythmia). To simplify this relationship, I explain these three possible states of coordinative variability as having "The Club" steering wheel lock (rigid periodicity), opposed to a Chauffeur driving (complex varibility), or in a less coordinated state of increased variability....a Chimpanzee driving the car. While The Club exhibits no "steering" variability, both the Chauffer and the chimpanzee show increased variability. Ideally, the Chauffer will be the healthiest state. We need to KNOW if complexity has increased to identify the "driver".

THAT is the purpose of THESE three entropy algorithms! With very high levels of statistical probability, they illuminate increased COORDINATION. In comparison, it is increased complexity of coordination that provides a better route to health and longevity.
