The Health Reality Lab is part of a forward-looking project to promote and research AR/VR applications in the healthcare sector. It aims to open up the existing knowledge of these industries for the health care sector, to disseminate it through a reality lab and to implement it in the context of e-health and mobile health applications. Regular events bring together interested parties and experts and create an environment for the exchange of current industry topics. One such event took place on 07.10. under the title “Games for Health”. Thomas Immich accompanied the event with a lecture on UX & Gamification: Inner piggy meets bosses.
Inner piggy meets boss: How digitalization thanks to UX & Gamification motivates more people to adopt a healthier lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is all too often the result of a strong will or great discipline. This cries out for everyday struggles against the inner pig dog. Nevertheless, more and more often you also meet people who can’t help but display certain health-promoting behavior patterns – whether in sports, rehab, nutrition or simply during everyday routines. Thomas Immich presented inspiring examples of this phenomenon and showed how these positive effects can be spread by means of UX & Gamification thanks to digital, networked terminals and apps.
