Abstract

Stair climbing is a physical activity that can easily be performed in daily life and has a positive influence on health. We investigated the role of technology to promote stair climbing by designing and implementing two prototypes in real-life circumstances. To understand user acceptance and interaction we conducted user studies in a shopping mall and a university building. Based on our findings we derived lessons learned for designing future technology for the promotion of stair climbing.
