Exploring the effect of an intervention on families using an intelligent personal system to deliver behaviour change techniques, compared to non-technology based delivery

Press/Media: Other


The project is exploring the role of intelligent personal systems like Alexa within the home environment, for promoting and maintaining physical activity and other health-related behaviours. The team is focusing on school children participating in the community-based, family-focused SWEET project (Safe Wellbeing Eating & Exercise Together as a family). The aim is to understand children’s motivation towards using the devices, whether there’s a lasting effect on their behaviour once the technology is taken away, and whether families find this technology acceptable to have in their homes.
