We present a taxonomy that attempts to explain the contributions in this field including health behaviour theory, cybernetic action behaviour models, social cognitive theory, and control theory.

N2 - With individual behaviour and lifestyle determining 30-50% of people’s health, research and supportive technology for affecting behaviour alteration remain urgently needed. Most existing persuasive systems are designed to persuade a user to change a finite set of behaviours to achieve a specific goal. However, if the user’s situation or goal changes, such systems cannot adapt to the changes. A much more robust type of persuasive systems is needed today to enable adequate health navigation and to empower people to face and change their own realities in terms of a large variety of health behaviours and lifestyles. In this paper, we provide a perspective on the impressive body of work contributed over the past 15 years, to better look into the future of persuasive health and to the opportunities a broader theoretical framework and practical methodologies may bring about.
