ActiThings Toolkit - Towards Supporting Older Adults’ Adherence to Home-based Physical Exercise Programs by Providing Notifications in Opportune Moments

Elke Beck, Kai von Holdt, Jochen Meyer

Abstract

Home-based physical exercise programs can delay or even prevent age-related frailty among older adults, but insufficient adherence to these programs, especially long-term, is a reoccurring problem. We suggest aiding the integration of simple exercises into daily routine by using innovative interactive tools which provide older adults with environmental prompts for exercises in opportune moments. In this paper, we report on our lessons learned with exploring the usefulness of our ActiThings toolkit, which includes a broad range of unobtrusive, portable, ubiquitous sensing and feedback technologies.
