Abstract [en]

This study aims to provide hypotheses regarding how a digital application can help individuals and professionals in the health industry to facilitate and promote physical activity through increased motivation. The study includes interviews with professionals in the health industry and self-determination theory as the basis for the development of the application. The result is presented through a final test where the application is used at a gym and a corresponding test where test persons instead use a paper-based tool. Users were then asked to fill out surveys to measure motivation. The result shows that an improvement is possible with the help of digitization of the paper method. It also shows that this needs to be further investigated in new studies before the hypotheses can be proved. Based on this result, two hypotheses are formulated for future studies.

- A digital application with anchoring in self-determination theory that focuses on promoting autonomy, competence and relatedness is more motivating than paper- based tools.- A digital application created from existing evidence-based tools increases motivation compared to paper-based solutions.
