Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Being physically active is important for health and well-being; however, adults frequently do not engage in recommended levels of physical activity. This paper presents a systematic review and meta-ethnography of adults’ experiences using mobile health applications to support participation in physical activity. The findings will advance the ability of OTs to effectively use these novel interventions where service users aspire to increase their physical activity levels.
