User needs, requirements and usability issues of a platform for healthy living: "BENEFIT for all"

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Users, patients (cardiovascular disease is a main target group) need to make many lifestyle changes in order to become or stay healthy. Grounding a healthy lifestyle in one’s daily life, creating long-lasting behavior change and healthy habits is not easy. Cardiac patients are offered a revalidation trajectory after leaving the hospital after a cardiac event. A period during which they have to adapt to new treatment regimes, recover, and cope with all the changes they go through. The BENEFIT project aims to support patients such as these CVD patients in doing this, by guiding them, facilitating healthy behavior by rewarding it. An online platform is created to support the medical, psychological, and general coaching interventions.
