Abstract [en]

Non-communicable diseases are the greatest burden on global healthcare, and because of today's limited health personnel, scalable behavioral health interventions are in need. MobileCoach is a behavioral intervention platform designed for aiding behavioral change amongst individuals. The work from this candidate thesis extends the MobileCoach platform by integrating the mobile application with Google Fit. Letting the platform collect the amount of steps an intervention participant has taken during a given day with the help of Google Fit. This required modification to the code of the mobile application, allowing MobileCoach to query for user Google Fit step data. As a contribution to MobileCoach, future work in the platform can consist of measuring the intensity of steps. That will give a better measurement of the health condition within the participant rather than only measuring the amount of steps.

Abstract [sv]

Icke-smittsamma sjukdomar och begränsad hälsopersonal är idag den största bördan för den globala sjukvården. Därför behövs hälsointerventioner som hjälper människor till beteendeförändring, som kan tillföra ett hälsosammare levnadssätt. MobileCoach är en plattform för hälsointerventioner som är designad att förändra livsstilen hos deltagaren. Denna kandidatuppsatsen utökar funktionaliteten hos MobileCoach-plattformen genom att integrera den mobila applikationen med Google Fit. Där plattformen samlar in antalet steg som en deltagare hos en intervention har tagit under en given dag, med hjälp av Google Fit. Detta krävde en modifiering av koden till mobilapplikationen, vilket möjliggjorde MobileCoach att fråga efter Google Fit-stegdata från användaren. Med denna utökade funktionalitet hos MobileCoach-plattformen utökas även möjligheten för MobileCoach att i framtiden kunna läsa av stegintensiteten från en deltagare, för att få ett mått på individens hälsotillstånd.
