Project Description

Evjeklinikken Norway: Digital technology to support weight loss maintenance

Exploring the role of digital technology to support maintaining health behavior changes after treatment in the obesity clinic.

Evjeklinikken (obesity clinic in Norway) is looking for a tool to support their patients in maintaining their newly adopted healthy lifestyle also outside the clinic. In the clinic patients are intensively guided by health care professionals with the aim to adopt a healthy lifestyle (healthy diet and sufficient physical activity). However, when the patients leave the clinic and return back in their normal daily life routines, they are exposed to many temptations challenging them to maintain their recently adopted healthy lifestyle. In this project we explore how new technology can be harnessed to support patients in maintaining a healthy lifestyle outside the clinic.
