Abstract

All physical activities carried somerisksofinjury, especially outdoors activities. Safety and injury preventionswerefactorsthat must be consideredin outdoor activities, but the availability of learning media for prevention and treatment for injuries in hiking was insufficient. This study aimedto describe the development of a new smartphone application to promote awareness and knowledge of injury prevention and treatment for beginners in hiking. The new application was developed by conducting procedural research and development. Data were collected by distributing questionnaires containing assessment of product quality and product improvement suggestions. Quantitative data from assessments of material and media experts gained a highly feasible score. After both the limited trial test and large group trial test were completed, the data also got a highly feasible score. A new Android application, Smartpala, developed guidance to prevent and treat injuries after/during hiking. It could be used in limited during hiking due to its limited content
