Abstract

Biofeedback is a well-known form of therapy in which the patient receives sensory and auditory input on their physiology to help them reflect on, recognize, and be aware of their own state in order to improve their cognitive and emotional functioning. In our approach, a user's self-avatar is generated based on their physiological state, specifically their heart rate and electrodermal activity. Moreover, based on self-reported anxiety symptoms, we investigate if the biofeedback self-immersive avatar can help reduce stress levels.
