Personal Technologies for Affective Health



Tools for measuring the efficacy of emotion regulation strategies in affective disorders, i.e. cognitive reappraisal (ESR5,8), biofeedback (ESR9), feedback’s modalities for cognitive reappraisal (ESR12) and biofeedback in mindfulness training (ESR13)

Training 5

e-learning AFFECTIVA platform hosting host learning materials from all network wide training events


Website completion, social media set up, i.e., Pinterest, Facebook, podcasts, blogs, Twitter, Google+

Prototypes 2

Technologies for emotional processing in affective disorders, i.e., integrated heart sensors and Kinect cameras for biofeedback interactive arts (ESR1), interactive systems exploring the organisation of episodic memories (ESR2), wearable systems for visualising & co-exploration of emotional experience (ESR3), integrating whole-body movement for capturing co-regulation in family settings (ESR4), capturing emotional sense making (ESR5), adaptive wearable system for processing emotional experience in depression (ESR12)

Guidelines 2

Design guidelines for training emotional regulation, i.e. mobile biofeedback system (ESR 9), mindfulness training at home (ESR13), design patterns for developing platforms integrating wearable and interactive systems (ESR 15)

Prototypes 3

Technologies for training emotion regulation, i.e., wearable systems for training cognitive reappraisal (ESR8), mobile app for the biofeedback management of stress (ESR9), wearables for training mindfulness at home (ESR13)


Technologies for capturing emotional experience and/or regulation, i.e. model-based wearable devices (ESR6), integrated wearable system for monitoring and management of bipolar disorder (ESR7), smartphone-based emotion regulation capturing tools (ESR10), system for unobtrusive stress monitoring at night (ESR11)


At least 5 conference + 3 journal papers for each ESR
