The aim of this study was to examine the effect of resonant breathing biofeedback training for reducing stress among manufacturing operators. Resonant breathing biofeedback works by teaching people to recognize their involuntary heart rate variability and to control patterns of this physiological response. Thirty-six female operators from an electronic manufacturing factory were randomly assigned as the experimental group (n = 19) and the control group (n = 17). The participants of the…

Comparing Effectiveness of HRV-Biofeedback and Mindfulness for Workplace Stress Reduction: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Findings suggest an overall reduction in stress for all groups, including the WLC, with mostly small to medium effect sizes, however, it is important to note that participants with higher baseline stress levels might benefit more from mindfulness and biofeedback-based stress reduction interventions.
The Effect of Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback Training on Mental Health of Pregnant and Non-Pregnant Women: A Randomized Controlled Trial

The effect of heart rate variability biofeedback training on stress and anxiety: a meta-analysis
A meta-analysis of studies extracted from PubMed, PsycINFO and the Cochrane Library found that HRV biofeedback training is associated with a large reduction in self-reported stress and anxiety.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) as a Physiological Marker of Stress Among Electronics Assembly Line Workers
The findings indicate that the use of DASS for self-reported stress assessment is parallel to HRV measurement, indicating that participants have a comprehensive understanding of the psychological and physical conditions.
DeLight: biofeedback through ambient light for stress intervention and relaxation assistance
The findings suggest that the biofeedback-driven ambient light can perform as persuasive technology in the domain of health self-management and the combination of decorative and informative aspects enables the lighting interface to offer the users a comfortable and relaxing condition for bio feedback-assisted relaxation training.
