Storm Health, Living it Up and Active Forth undertook an iterative process to develop the Get Active system, taking into consideration all of the desired technical functionality and requirements that a participant might need and want to use.
The Get Active programme is running within Forth Valley and is aimed at people who are involved in the exercise referral scheme. Participants are supported by Active Forth Fitness Consultants. Key components include:
- A portal for logging, monitoring and reporting physical activity online
- A wearable digital activity tracker which would automatically record activity data
- An iOS app for activity coordinators to automate the transfer of activity data from the tracker to the web site
