Effectiveness of mobile technologies delivering Ecological Momentary Interventions for stress and anxiety: a systematic review

Loo Gee, Brendan; Griffiths, Kathleen; Gulliver, Amelia


Mobile technologies may be suitable for delivering Ecological Momentary Interventions (EMI) to treat anxiety in real-time. This review aims to synthesize evidence on the effectiveness of EMI for treating anxiety conditions. This study found a small significant effect of EMI studies on reducing generalized anxiety. Studies on stress demonstrated EMI was effective compared to control, with the small number of studies on panic and social phobia demonstrating mixed results.
