Abstract:Middel-aged and elderly with visual impairment live mostly sedentary lifestyles. These sedentary lifestyles increase chance of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and depressive symptoms. Especially for this group, being physical active on a regular base could have benefits as physical activity strengthens their sense of balance and power. Assistive technology is something that could be used within this target-group to stimulate physical activity. Within this study determinants of exercise behavior in middle-aged and elderly with visual impairment have been studied. Next to this, interest in assistive technology to improve physical activity and their user-requirements have been addressed in this study.
