Abstract

In recent years health care professionals have been investigating the use of ICT technologies in order to influence the general public to change their attitude and behaviour toward a healthier lifestyle. We present Mobile Mentor, a platform aimed at supporting individuals on goal driven programs through personalized mobile technology. This demonstration focuses on a weight loss prototype, Weight Management Mentor, which supports self regulation through the collection of real time diet and exercise data, self reflection and awareness through its graphical feedback mechanisms, and interaction with a health practitioner or advisor through a central server.
