Wearable Kinematic And Physiological Biofeedback System For Movement Based Relaxation (2006)

Abstract Movement and mind control based arts such as Yoga and Tai Chi have been in existence for many centuries. In recent years much experimental evidence and research with a sound scientific basis has emerged to confirm that these arts / therapies have significant effects on the cardiovascular, respiratory and musculoskeletal systems. The main benefits of these ancient therapies include: 1. Promotion of mental and physiological relaxation 2. Enhanced body posture & musculoskeletal function 3. Improved cardiorespiratory function 4. Improved psychological well being & perceived quality of life.
