Abstract

Background: The recognized importance of psychological and behavioral factors in human performance highlights the need for devising new techniques that positively affect perceptions to achieve better outcomes. New software called Reframe Technology imbedded in an iPod has been developed to achieve such a goal.

Methods: Nineteen subjects with at least one issue to perceptually resolve used the Reframe Technology following proper protocols. Changes in resolving personal issues and mood were evaluated using the: (1) Positive States of Mind Scale, (2) Hassles and Uplifts Scale, and (3) Marlowe-Crowne Social Desirability Scale.

Results: The score on the Positive States of Mind Scale significantly increased from Day 0 to Day 14 (p=0.003) and Day 30 (p=0.001) and also from Day 14 to Day 30 (p=0.03). Significant decreases were also noted from Day 0 in the Hassles scores at each weekly time point, i.e., from Day 0 to Day 7 (p=0.02), from Day 0 to Day 14 (p = 0.001), from Day 0 to Day 21 (p=0.003), and from Day 0 to Day 30 (p=0.001). Changes on the Uplifts scores were non-significant. A highly significant decrease occurred in the intensity of the reframed issues (M difference=3, SD=1.9, p<0.0001,) and the average number of rounds to clear an issue was 4.2 (SD=0.8).

Conclusions: The results of this wait-list control study demonstrate that the Reframe Technology significantly improves both mood and the perception of severity of personal issues. Furthermore, 84% of the subjects reported assistance in resolving personal issues by the Reframe Technology, which highlights its effectiveness.
