I like to move it, move it!

Project sponsored by: The Sports Institute at UW Medicine

Physical activity is under discussed and under prescribed in the healthcare setting. The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) advocates healthcare providers to consider exercise as a criteria to evaluate the health of an individual, along with blood pressure and heart rate, etc. We designed a prototype of an iOS application that will track different activity metrics, troubleshoot barriers to adoption, connect patients to their healthcare team that will encourage motivation and create a positive feedback loop, thus improving their physical activity and overall health. Our process consisted of various user research methods conducted across multiple iterations of our prototype.
