Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the USA. Approximately 37% of adults have at least two risk factors including inactivity, obesity, high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Though daily exercise and a healthy diet will improve cardiovascular health, 78% of Americans exercise only occasionally or not at all and lack of motivation is a significant barrier. IAI has been awarded a contract to develop Healthy Eating and Active Lifestyle Tips for Heart health (HEALTHe) that delivers personalized reminders on a user’s desktop PC and smart phone. IAI’s ongoing SBIR effort to develop a 3D affective avatar or virtual coach for physical rehabilitation of soldiers with traumatic brain injury will be leveraged. Health tips like “let’s take a break and stretch for a minute” can be provided in the workplace. In the morning, a health tip can be provided at home like “Packing an apple as an afternoon snack is a good alternative to visiting the vending machine. And it’s high in fiber and vitamins!” Additional reminders to eat healthy snacks could be delivered to both the desktop and mobile devices. HEALTHe can be personalized using its 3D motivational avatar with text-to-speech capabilities, configurable reminders and integrated usability/usage metrics that allow users to rate reminders. Further, HEALTHe uses cloud synchronization to synchronize user preferences between an online database and the user’s PC and phones, to update user’s devices with new reminders and to synchronize user preferences between all devices. Lastly, crowd sourcing allows users to add new content and share it with others. In combination with the usability/usage metrics, popular and useful content is propagated amongst all users.
