The influence of multimedia on modern digital users is constantly growing. The paper describes an experimental study of audio-visual (AV) entrainment towards dynamical changes of selected human biometrics. Special wearable equipment of AV stimulation and polyphysiographic postural and brain activities recordings were accomplished for entrainment effect exploration. The obtained results demonstrated evident quantitative changes in both center-of-pressure sway and EEG of the studied subjects after the entrainment session, outlined with time-frequency spectral and multifractal measures. Practical implementation of the study results is directly applicable to the rehabilitation goals and nowadays digital world people stress relaxation, together with working capacity enlargement by multimedia applications.
