This paper presents a concept for designing low-cost therapeutic training with biofeedback and virtual reality. We completed the first evaluation of a prototype--a mobile learning application for relaxation training, primarily for adolescents suffering from tension-type headaches. The system delivers visual experience on a head-mounted display. A…

Gave 27 tension headache sufferers progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) training, with 14 of those subjects also receiving home practice and application instructions. Compared to third group of sufferers (n=6) who merely monitored headache activity, both treated groups showed significant reduction in headache activity. Treatment groups did not…

Cox, Daniel J.; And Others – Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 1975
Adults with chronic tension headaches were assigned to auditory electromyograph (EMG) feedback (N=9), to progressive relaxation (N=9), and to placebo treatment (N=9). Data indicated that biofeedback and verbal relaxation instructions were equally superior to the medicine placebo on all measured variables in the direction of clinical improvement,…

Hartman, Bruce W.; Utz, Patrick W. – 1979
Previous research has demonstrated the effectiveness of using paraprofessional trainers in teaching students with tension headaches to relax, thus reducing the frequency of their headaches. A technique for automated self-instructed relaxation training was compared to a paraprofessionally trained group and a no-treatment control group over a 3-week…
