The INTERSTRESS project uses advanced ICT-based solutions to assess and treat a condition that most citizens experience in modern society: psychological stress. The project uses biosensors and mobile devices to conduct an "e-therapy" that bridges virtual and physical reality into one seamless reality: interreality. The objective is to enable people to detect and manage stress in every circumstance. In 2012 the project won the UN-based World Summit Award Mobile for the best mobile health application.
The system integrates biosensors, virtual reality simulations and physical presence to assess symptoms of stress and support treatment planning. The user is motivated to participate actively in his own stress management thanks to continuous feedback on his parameters and provision of warnings
