Lifestyle Technologies and Society

701 views

Published on

This presentation illustrates the health and fitness improvements achieved through small changes in lifestyle habits and draws conclusions about the potential of Gamification strategies and wearable technologies on personal health management. In an age where obesity and lifestyle-related conditions are a severe threat to the sustainability of public health services, the transfer of responsibility for health management away from health professionals and onto technology-empowered citizens could have important implications for the future of society and responsible citizenship.
