Optimising feedback to improve the quality of your movement: a public survey to investigate the use of wearable technology and the delivery of feedback when assessing movement quality

Getting people to move better can have many benefits. It can help people to perform daily tasks with greater ease, avoid injuries, and live a more fulfilling life. The purpose of this study is to gather the thoughts of the adult population about how we can help people to move better and increase the understanding and awareness of the quality of their movements. We are particularly keen to get your thoughts on the ways that we could show people how they are moving during exercise in an engaging and effective way. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for many people to get this information, as this usually requires the help of a professional, such as a coach or a performance analyst. However, with the use of affordable wearable technology, we hope to overcome this limitation to help individuals correct possible problems with their movements to help them get fitter and healthier and live more active, enjoyable lifestyles.


There are no right and wrong answers. We are just trying to get your views which will provide valuable feedback and ideas for helping us understand how we can help the general public move better. Our findings from the questionnaire will help inform future developments, eventually leading to an intervention to improve how people move during exercise. The responses to the questionnaire will be confidential.
