Digital Innovations and Self-determined exercise motivation : an interdisciplinary approach
WEMAN-JOSEFSSON, KARIN ANNA, HALILA, FAWZI, JOHNSON, URBAN, WICKSTRÖM, NICHOLAS, WÄRNESTÅL, PONTUS
In face of escalating health care costs, new technology holds great promise for innovative solutions and new, more sustainable health care models. Technology centers around the individual, allowing for greater autonomy and control in health issues and access to tailored information and customized health behavior interventions. While this offers good opportunities for both public health impact and improved well-being at individual levels, it also emphasizes the need for properly designed e-health models firmly based on scientific principles and adequate theoretical frameworks. Consequently, this project aims to design an interactive tool utilizing an interdisciplinary approach combining motivational theory with the fields of information technology and business model innovation. In collaboration with two companies from the e-health industry, the purpose is to design, apply and evaluate a person-centered interactive prototype for maintainable and self-determined exercise motivation.
