ESR15. The use of connected health solutions to promote physical activity

Project Title: The use of connected health solutions to promote physical activity

Description:  Lack or inadequate level of physical activity is a major risk factor in health. Still, however, a significant percentage of the population, particularly among older adults, live a sedentary lifestyle. This project aims to explore the use of connected health technologies in order to promote the conduction of an active and healthy lifestyle. The project’s research objectives include the use of sensors to assess the level of physical activity, the definition of a semantic model with the ability to integrate information on activity, location and from the electronic health record, and the development of a reasoner able to identify the most appropriate behavioural change strategy to promote physical activity for the specific individual.
