Self knowledge through numbers
Who we are
Self-tracking for personalized health. That is what we study and teach. We are a multi-disciplinary research group active in the emerging field of apps and wearable technologies.
Meet our science director in this program from Dutch national TV (in Dutch). And see our blog for much more videos, pictures & news!
What we do
Our activities consist of research and innovation projects. Our ultimate goal: finding out by what means and to what extend self-tracking is useful for personal health. We focus on the Big Five for Healthy Life (physical activity, food, sleep, stress & relaxation and social interaction).
These are our guiding research questions:
- What hardware/software is available for self tracking?
- What kind of self tracking devices do people want and use?
- How valid and reliable is the technology?
- How effective is self tracking?
To answer these questions, we work in a multi disciplinary team. We work in collaboration with other research institutions, health organizations and industry partners. We share our knowledge through publications, presentations and conversation, see our blog for upcoming events. Also, check our philosophy and activities.
