Persuasive technologies & Augmented Feedback<br />Augmented Feedback<br />the use of an external device to increase an individual's awareness of various events by providing information, that accompany performance.<br />
Motivation:<br />The constant rising and high implementation of persuasive technologies, combined with the high penetration of commercial fitness software and hardware, provided the motivation for this study.<br />Hypothesis:<br />Providing augmented feedback during <br />physical activity leads to greater performance, <br />better experience, and higher motivation <br />for the trainee.<br />

The contribution of this work is summarized as follows:<br /><ul><li>Present a thorough experimental setup for measuring augmented feedback, both quantitatively, as well as, qualitatively.
Perform a small scale experiment, under realistic conditions, leading to experimental results in persuasive mobile health applications field.
Use a novel questionnaire approach for extracting unbiased qualitative characteristics and process them quantitavely.</li></ul>Further research directions<br /><ul><li>more repeats/workouts in a large period of time
technologically advanced, mobile fitness devices (augmented reality)
game-like motivation for trainees based on the framework of captology</li></li></ul><li>CSCW<br />Ευχαριστούμε για την προσοχή σας!<br />Ερωτήσεις...<br />
