Personal profile

Personal information

Aart van Halteren is an endowed professor of Health Behaviour Informatics. He is also a principal scientist with Philips Research.

Research

We are living in a digital world, and increasingly the boundaries between humans and their digital environment is blurring. People can be equipped with a myriad of devices that automatically measure their physical state and often in a highly nonintrusive fashion.

The challenge

A big challenge is to addresses the full cycle of automatically measuring, analyzing, and acting upon the physiological and psychological state of individuals or groups of people. Emphasis lies on promoting adherence: enabling people to willingly follow a therapy or stick to an agreed set of health behaviours. Typical examples for adherence range from the ensurance that patients adhere to their therapy (e.g. medication adherence) to the case of staying active to prevent obesity (physical activity promotion). To support adherence, the basic human needs of autonomy, competence and belonging need to be incorporated into the design of health behaviour support systems.
