Abstract In order to reduce both psychological and physical stress in air travel, sensors are integrated into airplane seats to detect gestures as input for in-flight entertainment systems. The content provided by the entertainment systems helps to reduce psychological stress, and gesture recognition is used as input for the content. The use of this system thus also stimulates passengers in limited seating space to make movements that would result in the reduction of physical stress. Preliminary user evaluation shows that users of the concept have significantly more active calf muscle pump activity in comparison with current situations and that users feel more active and less fatigued after a long period of sitting in the same position.
