Hotseat is exhibiting at the 2012 mHealth Summit in Washington, D.C. on December 3 and 4, 2012. The summit concentrates on the use of wireless technologies to improve health and health outcomes.

This year the mHealth Summit contemplates the status of emerging technologies and mobile health (mHealth) research, with sessions dedicated to exploring how mobile technology is altering health care in the U.S. and other developed countries, as well as in developing ones. Themed tracks focus on related topics, from how wireless technology is disrupting business models to how it’s affecting global delivery systems, and what current research tells us about mobile technology’s effectiveness.

You can find Hotseat in the Games for Health Pavilion in the summit’s Exhibit Hall. The Pavilion showcases cutting-edge games and game technologies to improve health and health care and is part of the Games for Health Project, an initiative supported by the The Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the creator of the annual Games for Health Conference.

Hotseat is a mobile health game designed to decrease sedentary behavior. Using nudges, social accountability and game play, Hotseat builds two-minute breaks into users’ daily calendars, turning short breaks into meaningful activity.
