Abstract

This paper introduces a system with persuasive communication to improve the diet compliance and adherence of participants of the PROMISS-project. For this persuasive communication different strategies and ways of personalisation are used, in accordance with existing literature. Furthermore, as the target group is elderly users, the design is tailored to their specific needs. A first prototype was created, based on seven functional requirements. During a pilot study, the prototype is evaluated with seven participants. Based on lessons learned during this pilot, as well as new requirements from the PROMISS dietitians, a refined design of the system was implemented. This refined design is briefly evaluated with four participants of the pilot during individual interviews. The changes made to the prototype were evaluated positively.
