How might we help improve the tracking of physical exercise training?

Case description

In FAS (Physical Activity and Health in Work Life), we are interesting in the development of a solution that we can use in our interventions studies. We investigate the effects of Intelligent Physical Exercise Training among different job groups, e.g. surgeons, cleaners, helicopter pilots, office workers etc.

The solution should serve as a vital source for our data management, as we should be able to track the physical exercise training that the study participants perform. Furthermore it may serve as motivating factor for the involved study participants as they are able to easily access the exercises they have to perform, see how much load they need in each exercise, the number of repetitions and sets, and so on.

What the solution should be able to:

Based on an algorithm that allows the solution to suggest individual exercise training programs using data obtained from a health check.

Included pictures and video of each exercise.

Let the study participant type in information about the conducted exercise training

Illustrate progression visually to motivate further training.

Vision of the department

A high percentage of Danish population spends a large part of their waking hours at their workplace. Therefore, the workplace is a natural arena for physical activity health promoting initiatives.  Physical activity tailored to the occupational exposure and individual capacity can in a lifetime perspective maintain physical fitness and a good musculoskeletal health thereby preventing inactivity and also other life style diseases.

The vision of the research group is to further develop the theoretical concept of Intelligent Physical Exercise Training (IPET) for specific work sectors and patient groups and to provide evidence for the physical exercise training promoting health in working life.

This also includes tailored treatment based on physical activities for specific patient groups and development of innovative use of technology.

Our primary focus is on prevention of musculoskeletal disease, pain and disability, but with a perspective on life style disease and how a good muscle and joint health enables a physically active life.
