A personalised new exercise app for people with long-term health conditions including heart and lung disease and diabetes is set to be piloted by researchers from the University of Leicester.
Not only will it provide users with guidance in undertaking walking exercise but its pioneering technology uses real-time environmental data to guide a user where and at what time to undertake outdoor exercise to minimise their exposure to air pollution.
The P-STEP app, which stands for Personalised Space Technology Exercise Platform, has been developed by colleagues across several departments within the University of Leicester.
Guidance is based on space data combined with artificial intelligence which delivers accurate pollution warnings at a staggering 10-metre resolution for users in the city of Leicester and 100m resolution for the rest of the UK.
