Physical activity for health Technology

The integration of technology is a relatively new but developing area of our research and aligns to University strategic focus, development and expertise.

Our research aims to embed the latest technologies including mobile and web-based technologies both within our interventions and to capture accurate measurement of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and health. Examples of our work in this area include:

  • Integration of technology within interventions to support active lifestyles for NCD prevention and management with focus on Diabetes – Dr Alison Kirk
  • Falls prevention in the over 65s with the use of technology assisted exercise programmes (exergames) - Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi
