BeUpright: Posture Correction Using Relational Norm Intervention

(Concept Video)

(Presentation at CHI 2016)

We propose ‘relational norm intervention’ (RMI) model for behavior change, develop a sample wearable/mobile service and evaluate its effectiveness. RNI model uses Negative Reinforcement and Other-Regarding Preferences as motivating factors for behavior change. The model features the passive participation of a helper who will undergo artificially generated discomforts (e.g., limited access to a mobile device) when a target user performs against a target behavior.
