Personalised Space Technology Exercise Platform (P-STEP) is an exciting innovation project funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and University of Leicester to develop a state of the art, clinically guided, exercise advice app incorporating real time environmental air pollution data, designed for people with long term health conditions. The project is led and will be delivered by an interdisciplinary team from across the University, including specialists working in informatics, health and clinical sciences, earth observation and air quality, and psychology and user engagement. This two-year project will lead to the development of a prototype app-based system which could lead to a step change in our ability to prescribe and monitor beneficial exercise in urban environments for patients with long term conditions. P-STEP has potential to make a significant positive impact on the health and quality of life of huge number of patients.
