Abstract:Continuous monitoring of physical activity using wearable technology is becoming ubiquitous and allows for real-time interventions through digital means aiming at the promotion of an active lifestyle. Many people use fitness apps and wearable technology to support it. However, digital health interventions still pose some problems in their effectiveness and usability. Bad tailoring of the interventions has been recognised as one of the main problems. As a result, there is a sudden drop in adherence to digital health interventions after a novelty period. A one-size-fits-all solution is likely to be ineffective, thus there is a need for personally customised interventions. This project applies knowledge discovery techniques to physical activity data and some contextual variables to find patterns which can support personally tailored and comprehensible interventions. It also takes into account the additional dimension of the experienced pleasure during activity.
