Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the Affective Respiration Device, its rationale and elaborate a few lessons learned from our attempt to embed this technology in the flow of everyday life. The device captures the respiratory behaviour of its viewer and provides bio-feedback and feedforward that enables people to come to terms with their breathing and activity in an engaging manner. After briefly discussing the theory, related work, and the system design we provide a use-scenario to highlight the experiential consequences of using the affective device. We further reflect on few learning points derived from a walk-through. This work aims to inspire design-thinking for patient’s home monitoring to shift from the cognitive approach towards an embodied bio-feedback.
