Automated system on android platform for use in the implementation psychotherapeutic technical EMDR

Description

It has been determined that the sessions with EMDR methodology applied in a digital form, allowing the psychotherapist treating patients with psychological disorders, and whereas there is currently no way to provide the methodology in this way, the next project is focused on the development a prototype that generates visual, auditory and tactile sequences used by this methodology in a manual or automatic way to provide therapy sessions to Psychotherapist. The control software for the prototype was developed on the Android platform to be deployed on mobile devices, allowing the Psychotherapist from your smartphone or tablet to control the type and speed of the sequences in all modules, the kind of sound in the ear module and the duration of the vibration on the tactile module. Additional software includes a database to record patient data. The interaction of the user that uses Android device psychotherapist and the patient is given by an IOIO board and a hardware adapted for the purpose. Psychotherapists who used the EMDR system showed a reduction in treatment times of 20-30 minutes per session. Psychotherapists reported that physical fatigue was reduced by a margin of 90 percent and mental fatigue by 75 percent in the traditional way of providing EMDR patients, allowing more consecutive sessions provide the same quality of treatment initiation to the end of his workday.
