How we design for Biofeedback

Studies have found that:

  • it is easier to influence users/patients by addressing specific rather than general behaviours.
  • effective feedback should be actionable, demonstrating a way to fill the gap between current and desired actions.

Our designs give feedback to the user of specific behaviours so the goal is kept constantly clear to the user and medical specialist / therapist who can provide instructions for how to achieve the goal.

Technology designed for rehabilitation

  • Non-intrusiveness – The system does not disrupt the activity being monitored
  • Intuitiveness – The biofeedback system promotes individual health monitoring and interaction by encouraging the correct user input without requiring a manual
  • Sustained involvement – The interface involves and rewards improvements to keep the user involved and motivated
  • Energy efficiency – Feedback system itself is energy efficient
  • Enhances not replaces existing therapy

Studies have shown that this form of biofeedback will assist patients to reach their treatment goals in significantly less time.
