IMPACT

IMPACT, Improving and Motivating Physical Activity using ContexT, is a system that monitors and informs users about their physical activity and the context in which the activities happen. By contextualizing physical activity, the system helps users find opportunities among the things they do to improve their physical activity. The system provides users with real-time information on a phone interface and with trends and historical information on a desktop and online interface. The system will also tailor motivational information.
