E-therapy to lower stress levels
The future system combines biosensors and mobile devices to conduct an “e-therapy” that bridges virtual and physical reality into one seamless reality: interreality. The user wears (easy-to-use, low cost and comfortable) sensors which measure our heart beat, respiration, sweat and other physical indications of stress. The Mobile app then takes the user through relaxation exercises, scenes, and sounds in a virtual beach, forest,
mountain or tropical environment. The sensor monitors the user’s physical reactions and adjusts the scenes and music to lower the user’s stress levels. This 3D-biofeedback training helps to counter the physiological changes induced by stress. Users can also share their experiences with others through 3D shared virtual world role-playing, bio and
activity sensors in mobile and in internet applications. This system would need to go clinical trial to be trustworthy. The private markets work as each user could pay a fee to use it with the mobile device.
