MindFlow is a personalized wearable system designed to provide the user with calming, restorative audio and tactile experiences through an innovative use of their real-time physiological data. MindFlow provides a data-driven, multimodal approach to reducing anxiety, and builds on neurobiological theories of emotion that explain the biophysical basis for emotional states. The Mindflow team will be working with people with Dementia during the SWCTN R&D period alongside partners Age UK in order to produce a prototype which will provide data-driven anxiety reducing experiences.
