Brief Summary in Scientific Language

In an aging society an increasing number of people is no longer able to cope with their disease due to multimorbidity and cognitive impairments. These physical and psychological impairments often result in a loss of quality of life. In 2009 in Germany, 60% of women and 53% of men older than 65 years were facing at least on chronic disease. In total, there are more than 80% of people older than 65 years in western European Countries who suffer from a chronic condition. Many of them are in need of help on a daily basis to deal with their disease.
One variant of wearable health technologies (WHT) to support health promotion behavior are so called fitness trackers, which are body worn sensors. With their aid, patient data can be documented and analyzed to provide feedback about their current health status. Reliable data about psycho-social factors influencing the usage of WHT and subjective experiences of patients are largely missing. This prospective study consists of a qualitative information collection on patients’ perspectives and expectations with respect to WHT in advanced age. The observations gained through this first part of the project will be used to define the design of an intervention step to address efficacy and tolerability of a wearable tool in the aged as far as well-being and disease-relevant basic vital parameters are concerned.
