mHealth and Big Data


mHealth Training Platform

mHealth Training Platform will enhance knowledge spread through improving the users´ access to all the training materials, and 2 MOOCs to disseminate the results during and after the end of the project. mHealth APP will facilitate an active role from users, based on personalized risk assessment bio-psycho-social factors, and will allow a follow-up of the users, getting data.

Big Data

The use of Big Data from the mHealth tools opens a big opportunity to progress to adaptive training platforms that can offer updated and tailored teaching and training, under the basis of “more users, more data and then better feedback to allow personalized attention”.

mHealth tools and materials

Both mHealth tools and materials will be tested and validated through Prevent4Work project activities: 3 pilot actions, with participation of 1500 workers from different economic sectors, and 3 scientific publications.
