Mind-body practices are widely used to reduce feelings of tension and effects of stress. With biofeedback, users receive information (feedback) about their body (bio), which facilitates mind and body interactions. Biofeedback process is a highly individual experience in the way the users respond to the feedback and use it to regulate their thoughts and physiology. This research explores a novel adaptive biofeedback system for mind-body practices. The proposed biofeedback system could adapt its feedback source, information load and interface modality based on the user’s physiological states, achieved performance and interaction. The adaptive biofeedback system is currently being developed and a longitudinal evaluation will be conducted in the future.
