Abstract

Biofeedback is an emerging technology being used as a legitimate medical technique for several medical issues such as heart problems, pain, stress, depression, among others. This paper introduces the Multi-Modal Intelligent System for Biofeedback Interactions (MMISBI), an interactive and intelligent biofeedback system using an interactive mirror to facilitate and enhance the user's awareness of various physiological functions using biomedical sensors in real-time. The system comprises different biofeedback sensors that collect physiological features; the system also provides intuitive, intelligent, and adaptive user interfaces that promote a natural communication between the user and the biofeedback system. The Ambient Intelligence (AmI) technology is incorporated in the system to provide means for biofeedback responses. The proposed conceptual system is been evaluated by 15 subjects and the results are very stimulating. Ninety percent (90%) of the subjects confirmed that the system is beneficial, deployable, and affordable for personal use. On the other hand, 30% of the subjects have indicated that privacy is the resisting issue for the wide deployment of the system.
