About the book

Smart biofeedback is an intelligent, autonomic feedback mechanism to let people smartly (1) observe their physiologic information such as muscle tension, blood pressure, heartbeat rates, and brainwave signals, (2) develop an awareness of their physiological reactions, and (3) learn to change these physiologic responses accordingly. The mechanism smartly helps people take responsibility for their cognitive, emotional, and behavioural changes for better health. Smart biofeedback is an intelligent learning process that utilizes various sensors to measure physiologic functions and parameters. Sensory data are collected, analyzed, and then fed back to the human sensor nervous system in an intelligent, direct and immediate way. Smart biofeedback utilizes a broad range of advanced technologies like wireless communications, Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, biomedical sensors, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, virtual reality, cybernetics, and so on, to smartly collect, analyze and feedback the physiologic data. As one of the popular self-care approaches, smart biofeedback has been applied in therapies of self-regulation of psychiatric and physiologic disorders, training of balance and mobility tasks, development of socio-emotional interactions, assessment of psychophysiological stress, and more. The applications of smart biofeedback are various and with promising perspectives in every area of our life.

This book will aim to provide the readers abreast of the research projects and clinical practices in smart biofeedback. Such readers include medical specialists, clinical practitioners, researchers, developers of smart biofeedback technologies, scholars and graduate students in the fields of biomedical engineering, medicine, physiotherapy, computer engineering, data science, and so on.

This book will intend to cover a wide range of topics in smart biofeedback, including, but not limited to, smart biofeedback therapies in psychiatric and physiologic disorders, smart biofeedback practices, smart biofeedback applications in posture and sports training, comprehensive surveys and perspectives of smart biofeedback, and others.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
