Luisa Prochazkova – Meditation and Virtual Reality
Mindfulness is a meditation technique that has been shown to have a positive influence on the quality of human life in both sickness and health. The goal of the current research is to create an application in a virtual reality that facilitates mindfulness skill in a fun, interactive, but effective way. The unique combination of a virtual reality (VR) presented using 3D glasses with biofeedback (BF) will make mindfulness techniques available even for those for whom meditation practice may seem difficult. The application created should support neuro- cognitive functions that are essential for psychological resilience and well-being. The effectiveness of such training will be subsequently verified via randomized controlled study.
