Stimulating healthy lifestyles

New technological developments such mobile wireless computer technologies have received attention from those working in health promotion as a promising new way of achieving ill-health prevention and promoting healthy behaviours at the population level. In particular, with an increasing aging population, health-related behaviourism (such as food intake and exercise) can fluctuate dramatically over time and tend to be influenced by intrapersonal as well as environmental factors.

IHTC stimulates projects for the promotion of healthy lifestyles supported by eHealth technologies. Current projects are focusing on weight management (for people with risk of obesity) and dental prevention for the elderly population.
