Kiera Bartlett examined which psychological behavioural change techniques were most effective in changing health-related behaviours. She went on to look at how behaviourial change techniques and persuasive technology principles could be incorporated into a mobile app designed to help people with a serious lung condition (COPD) be more physically active. She went on to test whether the app worked in practice and considered ways of improving the design of the app. These improvements are now being implemented in a working system which will be tested with more people with COPD.
Congratulations to Dr Hargreaves and Dr Bartlett on their graduation!
