The paper describes the conceptual design of Performance Edge VR, a virtual reality-based stress management training tool and evaluates the first module: controlled breathing.

The study was conducted at The University of Newcastle and shows that our innovative biofeedback-enabled VR training tool improves participants’ controlled breathing skills. We also report positive user feedback on the design style and general features of the VR application.
