Description

|free text=}} Lack of physical activity is a large problem in modern society. In the Active2Gether project, we are developing a mobile system that stimulates physical activity. In the context of this project, we have developed a model that predicts how the physical activity behaviour will develop over time, given psychological and practical issues.

Goal: run experiment to collect data about psychological constructs and physical activity and see whether existing model predicts behaviour motivation, intentions, social support, practical barriers, etc.

Experimental setup largely ready

  • existing app can be used

Requested characteristics:

  • interest in experimental research
  • experience with validation of dynamic model
