Advancement in wearable devices has allowed users to easily capture and monitor their physical activity data. There is a growing interest in using the data captured by these devices for selfmanagement of chronic diseases. People with chronic conditions are encouraged by their clinicians to maintain a non-sedentary lifestyle. However, people tend to be forgetful when it comes to non-sedentary behaviours [26, 41]. We have developed "FitViz-Ad", a non-intrusive reminder to encourage people with Rheumatoid Arthritis to maintain a non-sedentary lifestyle. We conducted a study with fourteen healthy individuals to evaluate the feasibility of FitViz-Ad. We did not find any significant increase in participants' non-sedentary behaviour. However, the findings suggest design implications for developing reminders which encourage non-sedentary behaviour and accommodate different lifestyles.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.
