The activities of daily living in combination with job and family generate stress in many persons. Symptoms like: tension, fatigue, and anxiety grow apart of a well-being. This project investigates the use of a biofeedback device in daily life. This device should help persons to identify their own body changes in stress situations.

The main focus is on the interaction between the human body and the biofeedback device.

Experiments with the change of stress level through stimulation of the sense of smell were carried out.
