Finding highest motivation for physical activity

474 views

Published on

Everyone knows that motivation for a certain behavior, such as physical activity, changes over time. To encourage someone to do physical activity, such as walk 30 minutes a day, it is useful to find the person's highest motivation during the day and prompt the user at that moment. This is a proposal about a technology that could find this period of highest motivation.

Finding highest motivation for physical activity

  1. 1. Creating a healthy behavior by predicting the motivation wave
  2. 2. What is the motivation wave? As everyone has experienced, our motivation to do a certain behavior increases and decrease over time.Motivation Time
  3. 3. What is the motivation wave? As everyone has experienced, our motivation to do a certain behavior increases and decrease over time. At highest motivation, you are most likelyMotivation to do the behavior. Time
  4. 4. Finding the highest motivationHow do you find the users highest motivationfor becoming physically active, such as walkingfor 30 minutes?
  5. 5. Finding the highest motivationHow do you find the users highest motivationfor becoming physically active, such as walkingfor 30 minutes?One idea: integrated mobile app that knows location sleep duration and quality physical activity when the user is free
  6. 6. Finding the highest motivationHow do you find the users highest motivationfor becoming physically active, such as walkingfor 30 minutes?One idea: integrated mobile app that knows location sleep duration and quality physical activity when the user is free ...the more information, the better!
  7. 7. Mobile app for finding highest motivationUsing input data, the app calculates probabilityof highest motivation for physical activity.
  8. 8. Mobile app for finding highest motivationUsing input data, the app calculates probabilityof highest motivation for physical activity.With high enough probability, the app pushesnotifications. For walking 30 minutes, the appmay suggest a good walking route and offertwo buttons: "Yes, Ill take a walk" or "No, notnow".
  9. 9. Mobile app for finding highest motivationUsing input data, the app calculates probabilityof highest motivation for physical activity.With high enough probability, the app pushesnotifications. For walking 30 minutes, the appmay suggest a good walking route and offertwo buttons: "Yes, Ill take a walk" or "No, notnow".The app learns and tries to find patterns aboutthe users motivation wave based on userspassive and active input data.
  10. 10. Mobile app for finding highest motivationMain features: - Very little effort for the user Almost all the data is passively collected e.g. FitBit/smartphone accelerometer, Lark/sleep sensor, GPS, calendar - App constantly learns i.e. is personalized Results are gotten easily through the user pushing a button
