dc.description.abstractHigh levels of physical inactivity that are trending upwards in the population present significant health challenges, particularly in seniors. Opportunities are present for emerging technologies to promote and engage seniors in physical activity, leading social change in this area, with a goal to boost quality-of-life, health, self-efficacy and autonomy in this growing segment of the population. Attitudes to emerging technology adoption, physical activity and behaviour change must be identified. This will allow the practical adoption of strategic information system implementations that can create meaningful, macro-level impacts in this in area of senior physical activity, as well as inform strategies and best practices for designers of information technology systems in this developing area.en_US
