Duration: until 20th of June 2014
This study is part of an innovative collaboration (Active Ageing Diabetes; Innovatie Werkplaats Diabetes) of several organizations (business, healthcare, education) who work together to stimulate an active and healthy lifestyle in people with Type 2 Diabetes.
Sensor technology/apps can provide feedback to the user about their life and behaviour. This can stimulate and motivate people to change their behaviour or habits. This is called a feedbackloop. To date, little is known about the effects of self-tracking and feedbackloops.
The aim of this study is to formulate recommendations about how to use feedbackloops in combination with (sensor)technology and applications to change human behaviour.
The recommendations will be based on extensive literature search, taking into account different perspectives on the matter, e.g., social, evolutionary, psychological, philosophical, and physical.
The expected output of this project is a literature-based report with recommendations about how to use feedbackloops in combination with (sensor)technology and applications to change human behaviour.
