The Smart Play Set-COMMIT project focuses on the early detection of derailment of the healthy development of motor skills in primary school children through Smart Play Sets. These play sets are on the one hand capable to provide a high level diagnosis through sensors and captured data and on the other hand to engage children in physical activities that are fun to do and offer relevant exercises for care and cure.

Our main scientific question is “How can personalized assessment and intervention technology be built for children in a primary school setting that uses game concepts in smart objects?”

In our research we adopt a research through design approach, iterating on design case cycles that, starting from theoretical concepts and best-practice design processes, produce design knowledge and further understanding of the design process.
