Demonstration of web based clinician’s dashboard (DEMCD)

This deliverable will be a demonstration of the clinician's dashboard functionalities.

First version of smartphone (DEMV1) SELFBACK application on iOS

This deliverable will be an ios application with the first functionalities.

Physical Activity Recognition (PAR) software component for SELFBACK

Software that encapsulates activity recognition from wearable devices. It will analyse the data streams and identify presence of relevant activities.

Demonstration of web and mobile software interacting with connected devices such as a wristband that monitors patient activities (DEMFIN)

This deliverable will be a demonstration of the interactions between application and connected devices.

Demonstration of localized software (DEMLOC) in multiple languages

This deliverable will be a demonstration of each languages integration.

This deliverable will be a demonstration of the application's functionalities on iOS and Android.

Demonstration of web-based questionnaire (DEMQ)

This deliverable will be a demonstration of the questionnaire (user side and administrator side).

Intervention mapping protocol (IMAP)

This deliverable contains the description of the participatory planning group as well as an evaluation plan for the intervention.

Results from WP2 pilot study (PILOT) and empirical evaluations of algorithms

This is a report (deliverable) on the survey and interview findings. It will inform refinements to SelfBack prior to its use in the RCT. It will also include empirical analysis of all algorithms conducted on benchmark activity recognition datasets.

Report on go-to-market (GOTOM) strategy and product development

This deliverable is a strategic report on the future roll out of the service products, and adaptations that can be considered for future service products.

Literature review (LIT)

This deliverables will provide existing evidence on effect of using technology based self-managing both in patient groups in general and specifically among low back patients.

Knowledge management plan (KMP)

This deliverable will provide a listing of the background and foreground IP, and how this Intellectual Property is managed towards both the scientific and the business community.

Structuring of information collected by questionnaires (QUEST)

This deliverable will contain a description of which questions will be asked to the patient. It contains information on how we build up the questionaire based on existing ones from other projects or the literature.

Results after the implementation (IMPL) of the business plan

This deliverable is a first evaluation of the projections made in the business plan and provide a look into future potential of the service products.

Trial (TRIAL) protocol

This deliverable will be a published detailed trial protocol paper for the the RCT.

Dissemination and communication plan (DCP)

This deliverable will describe the way the information on the results of the project will be chanelled to the different stakeholders.

Process evaluation (PROEV) and effect study, randomised controlled trial (

This deliverable will document the implementability of the intervention. It will include information about barriers and facilitators to uptake, utilisation, and likely sustainability of the intervention.

Final version data management plan (DMP2)

This deliverable contains an final version of the Data Management Plan.

User Intervention Modelling Framework (UIMF)

This framework will identify the different categories of behaviour , how to identify that behaviour from recognised activities and finally the appropriate form of intervention for each behaviour category.
