Flashcards in IFAT #4 Deck (18):
1

How is it suggested that space-time paths come about?

activities that an individual is strongly committed to and are both space and time fixed tend to act as pegs

ordering of other activities area arranged around pegs according to flexibility ratings

2

What is the Scheduling Process approach?

observed patterns result from underlying scheduling

needs/desires/projects drive agenda
agenda and salient attributes embody opportunities and constraints, given feedback by learning and habit formation
dynamic scheduling process
observed activity travel patterns

3

How does learning and habit formation provide feedback to the agenda?

learning
- increases agenda flexibility
- ex. learning of 24 hour tennis club

habit formation
- makes agenda more fixed
- ex. choosing a grocery store preference

4

What are the components of the dynamic scheduling process?

pre-planning

impulsive decisions

modifications (adding, deleting)

future planning

5

What is an agenda?

list of things you have to do (+ important attributes)

6

What is the activity scheduling process good for?

understanding impacts of emerging policy
- active travel promotion
- urban intensification
- telework/e-commerce

7

What is health geography?

the application of geographic ideas, info, and theories to the study of disease, health and health care

ex. spatial patterns of disease and health issues

8

How does the WHO define health?

a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity

9

What are some determinants of health?

diet
sleep
clean water
access to health care
financial state
air quality
social circle
physical activity
genetics

10

What is the Triangle Model of Environment Determinants of Health?

all 3 areas contribute to Human Health:

Populations
- age/sex distribution
- genetics
- cultural beliefs

Lifestyle
- diet
- physical activity
- daily choices

Structure
- habitat/environment
- natural and cultural landscapes

11

What was the equation given in the TED talk? What did he say we need to do?

Genetics + Lifestyle + Environment = Risks

need to go beyond where we have lived, look more closely at how we live on a daily basis

12

What health attributes can GPS tracking infer after tracking?

active transport, exercise
sedentary activities
nature exposure (exposure to toxins)
socializing, shopping
outdoor vs indoor behaviour
mobility/accessibility issues

13

What is GPS+?

passive GPS in combination with interactive techniques/sensors, leads to breakthroughs in explaining and understanding impacts of health issues

14

Describe the Diabetic patient multi-sensor monitoring.

GPS +
- physiological sensors
- blood glucose levels
- accelerometer
- heart rate sensors

Goals
- demonstrate monitoring capabilities
- discover new factors that explain blood glucose fluctuations

connected devices to Blackberry enabled with GPS+ got a food diary
found glucose varied not only on time but on space and travel

15

Describe the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) and use in parks.

repeatedly prompts person via cell phone to tell of experiences in natural setting

allowed for situational analysis of
- tourism experience
- harrassment
- pain
- mental health
- cognitions

reduces bias, enhances validity

16

Describe the elderly point-of-care interface.

GPS + bed matt sensors

Goal
- demonstrate 24 hour decision support capabilities

17

Describe Interactive Messaging.

ultimate application

context awareness allows targeted messages
in-situ messaging more effective for behavioural change (real time vs. posters)

apps in:
- smoking cessation
- promoting physical activity
- promoting local healthy food

18

What makes Smart APPetite special?

personalized

tips find you

nudge theory

temporal and location triggers
