Reboot blends statistical data with an experimental hypothesis, using an interdisciplinary methodology. It aims to create innovative tools to approach the complex subject of trauma. The prototype designed and developed for Reboot is a private space that alters sensory stimulus. Its purpose is to help an individual regain control over her/his emotions during a panic attack. This private space creates a safe barrier between the user and his/her external environment.
The study and accompanying prototype together represent phase 1 of the on-going research practice.
