This is RGU's website for its contribution to the SelfBACK project. SELFBACK is an EU funded Horizon 2020 project to develop a monitoring system to assist patients to self-mange low back pain. The system uses wearable sensors to continuously monitors users' physical activity and sleep, and mobile phones to provide decision support and behavioural change interventions to the user. The system aims to recommend personalised self-management plans to users while automatically tracking adherence of users to recommended plans. RGU's contribution to the project is the development of activity recognition algorithms and the development of theory-backed digital intervention approaches.
