Abstract:People suffering from a persistent, irrational fear (phobias) try to avoid every possible confrontation with the phobic object. This anxiety has, as a result, a significant limitation of their life of those people. There are multiple treatment methods on the market to treat people with phobias. Two of the most common ones are In vivo exposure and virtual reality treatment. Both are proven to be very successful in treating phobic patients but still have some flaws which prevent the patient from an effective treatment. This paper outlines the possible implementation of augmented reality and biofeedback in current phobia treatment solving the detected problems of the earlier mentioned treatments. Two prototypes were developed, testing participant possible solution of an augmented reality treatment including biofeedback. The results from the prototypes show potential for further development and research in implementing a new way of treating people including the latest technology.
