One of the invited sessions on Saturday 7 July at ECSS Dublin 2018 asks if there is an app for everyone?!


The first speaker Doctor Steven Vos (Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands) talks about the “Development of a Screenings Protocol and a Decision Tool for Professionals”. The second speaker and the chair of the session Professor Marije Deutekom (University of Applied Science Amsterdam, The Netherlands) focuses on “App Preferences and Experiences of Recreational Runners, Cyclists and Walkers”. The last speaker Professor Ralph Maddison (Deakin University, Australia) talks about “A Smartphone-Based Technology Platform for People with Heart Disease”.


Here is how Professor Deutekom approaches the session.
“The use of sport- and health-related smartphone applications (apps) has increased exponentially in the last five years. Ideally apps should contribute to a healthy, frequent and enjoyable sport or physical activity experience. They offer the possibility to support (health) professionals and their clients in reaching their goals with regard to an active lifestyle. However, which apps are able to reach these goals, which apps should you choose and which apps fits which type of user?


  • A decision tool for sport-app choice.
  • Profiles of sport-app users based on their app preferences.
  • Effect of a smartphone-based technology platform for people with heart disease.
