It aims to combine a wearable (watch, wristband) and offer a wide range of automatic or manual tools to cope with anxiety and thereby to foster self-efficacy. The tool is co-developed by users and researchers within a multi-methodical iterative approach. The Urban Mobility Lab "aspern mobil LAB" (amLAB) provides methodical knowledge and design expertise especially with regard to the usability perspective and the dissemination of the results.
