Abstract

Even though much recent research has proposed systems that provide assistance and services to people, these systems emphasize the support of the physical aspects at the expense of emotional aspects. However, emotional health is as important as physical health. Moreover, negative emotional health can lead to social or mental health problems. To cope with negative emotional health, we proposed a new healthcare system that focuses on affective aspects. Our healthcare system integrates augmented reality to display virtual objects in real environments and Kinect, which allows users to freely interact with virtual objects because interaction with virtual objects may improve their emotional states. We also employ biological sensors to measure and detect user emotions, and provide three services based on their expected emotions: Relaxed Service, Amusing Service and Exciting Service. Our system is designed for adolescents and adults such as students in high school or working people. Our system is also designed to support them in daily life.
