Abstract [en]

Fitness is a large part of todays modern society, especially running.

With the advent of the smartphone a large number of

apps based on helping runners track and improve their performance

has popped up, some of which support some kind of

audio feedback. To further build on this this essay explores the

possibilities of using sonification of a runners heart rate to aid

them in maintaining specific heart rate zones while training.

The sonification was implemented on the android platform using

a Zephyr HxM BT heart rate monitor. It was tested with

three users. I found that while the sonification aided the users

in maintaining their heart rate zones, it was achieved through

overcompensating, and this resulting in an uneven heart rate.

However the concept shows promise, and i suggest some ways

it can be improved in the future.

Abstract [sv]

Friskvård är en stor del av vår moderna värld, speciellt löpning.

Efter smarttelefonens ankomst har en stor mängd appar

som fokuserar på att hjälpa löpare hålla reda på och förbättra

sin löpning kommit. Varvid vissa innehåller någon form av

ljudfeedback. För att bygga vidare på detta utforstkar denna

uppsats möjligheten att utnyttja sonifiering av en löpares puls

för att förbättra hens löpförmåga, genom att ligga inom vissa

pulszoner". Sonifiering implementerades i form av en app

på Androidplatformen. I uppsatsen upptäcktes det att medans

sonifiering hjälpte löparna upptäcka när de kom utanför en pulszon,

var det på kostnaden av en jämn puls. Därför föreslås det i

slutet sätt att vidareutveckla detta koncept för att bättre hjälpa

löpare förbättra sig.
