The usability is becoming a key factor for the success on constantly growing software market. The ergonomy of the graphical interface and the overall feeling of the usage could be the most influental features, during the decision-making process between programs, with identical functionality. The developers have a rising need validate their application from that aspect, before its public release. At this time, the available solutions, that support an objective, biofeedback enhanced measurement process are mostly expensive and often requires ergonomics experts to use them.

My goal was to create a solution on Windows platform, that integrates affordable and handy biometric sensors, in order to help application usabililty researches. The system includes EEG, ECG, and gaze-tracking devices, which are integrated in a framework, based on the AdaptEd biofeedback environment. This software offers a simple online, and a more advanced offline solution, to present the data from different sensors at the same time. In the offline solution, a classification-based data-processor is also available.
