BACKGROUND Web-based and mobile interventions to influence physical activity behavior have had limited effects on sustained behavior change. One reason may be that the interventions aim to change largely habitual behavior. Following an identity-oriented approach could be a successful strategy to behavior change because people are committed to behave in line with their self-perception of identity. OBJECTIVE In this paper, we take a closer look at the role of motivation in long-term adherence to l...
BACKGROUND Although several apps are available to support the treatment of urinary incontinence (UI), little has been reported about the experiences and preferences of their users. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to explore the experiences and preferences of women using a mobile app for the treatment of UI and to identify potential improvements to the app. We developed this app for three types of UI: stress UI, urgency UI, and mixed UI. METHODS The participants in this qualitative stud...

Background: Mobile health apps are commonly used to support diabetes self-management. However, there is limited research assessing if such apps are able to meet the basic requirements to retain and engage users. Objective: In this study, we aimed to evaluate participants' retention and engagement with My Care Hub (MCH), a mobile app for diabetes self-management. Methods: This study employed an explanatory mixed-method design. Participants were people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who used the h...

BACKGROUND Sustained self-monitoring and self-management behaviors are crucial to maintain optimal health for individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). As smartphones and mobile health (mHealth) devices become widely available, self-monitoring using mHealth devices is an appealing strategy in support of successful self-management of T2DM. However, research indicates that engagement with mHealth devices decreases over time. Thus, it is important to understand engagement trajectories to pr...

BACKGROUND Physical activity smartphone apps are a promising strategy to increase population physical activity, but it is unclear whether government mass media campaigns to promote these apps would be a cost-effective use of public funds. OBJECTIVE We aimed to estimate the health impacts, costs, and cost-effectiveness of a one-off national mass media campaign to promote the use of physical activity apps. METHODS We used an established multistate life table model to estimate the lifetime health g...

UNSTRUCTURED: The current pandemic of coronavirus disease (2019) (COVID-19) has highlighted the importance of rapid control of transmission of infectious diseases. This is particularly important for COVID-19, when many individuals are asymptomatic or have only mild symptoms, but can still spread the disease. Current systems for controlling transmission rely on patients to report their symptoms to medical professionals, and be able to recall and trace all their contacts from the previous few days...
BACKGROUND Current digital health interventions primarily use interventionist-defined rules to guide the timing of intervention delivery. As new temporally dense data sets become available, it is possible to make decisions about the intervention timing empirically. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to explore the timing of physical activity among youth to inform decision points (eg, timing of support) for future digital physical activity interventions. METHODS This study comprised 113 adolescents aged ...

BACKGROUND Persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) often experience dexterous difficulties during the performance of activities of daily living, such as fastening buttons, handling coins, or writing, therefore impacting their health-related quality of life. Mobile health (mHealth) solutions, such as tablet apps, may be used to train impaired dexterous skills. The feasibility of a tablet app-based dexterity home-based intervention in MS (TAD-MS) has not been explored yet in persons with MS. OBJECTIV...

BACKGROUND The use of digital tools to promote daily self-weighing and daily activity tracking may be a promising strategy for weight control among African American breast cancer survivors (AABCS). There have been no studies exploring the acceptability and feasibility of using digital tools for weight control or qualitative studies characterizing perceptions of daily self-weighing and daily activity tracking among AABCS. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to explore the subjective experiences of daily s...

BACKGROUND Active transportation (AT; ie, walking and cycling as a mode for transportation) has been associated with decreased morbidity and mortality; however, low-cost and scalable intervention programs are lacking. OBJECTIVE The goal of the research was to determine the effectiveness of a 3-month behavior change program delivered via a mobile phone app to promote AT (TravelVu Plus) on time spent in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA). METHODS For this 2-arm parallel randomized contr...
