Guidance for providers, practitioners & commissioners

Guidance for commissioners, service providers, clinicians and social prescribing link-workers on the use of technology to encourage physical activity

This document provides guidance designed to assist those involved in making decisions and recommendations, both to individuals and organisations, on the use of technologies to support physical activity. It sets out a number of key considerations and questions to ask about technologies or technology-enabled programmes and services to help ensure they are targeted, acceptable to users and effective in promoting and sustaining increased physical activity.

The evidence-base for this guidance is set out in Enabling better health for all: the role for digital technologies to help people move more and stay healthier for longer - a response from the GetaMoveOn Network+ to Advancing our Health: prevention in the 2020s
