The Breeze app enables smartphone-based breathing training with a playful approach. The application automatically detects various breathing phases and whether they are being done properly.
A first version is in development and an app prototype has already been put into practice. Several studies are currently being planned to gather data and improve the detection of breathing. At the same time, a gamification concept is being developed. The use of gamified elements is intended to boost motivation and increase the therapeutic outcome.
As well as in the treatment of chronic diseases, the app could potentially be used as a form of prevention, e.g. as a means of stress reduction.
