WellBeNet application

Analysis of human mobility, food choice and physiological/emotional feeling in free-living conditions

WellBeNet is an Android bilingual application developed by the Human Nutrition Research Unit of INRA, and available for download via the Play Store. It is composed of three parts: eMouve, NutriQuantic and EmoSens. eMouve assesses the duration of sedentary behaviors and of light-, moderate- and vigorous intensity activities and associated energy expenditure. NutriQuantic keeps track of the number of consumed portions in 12 food categories and assesses nutritional balance scores. EmoSens analyses the balance of emotions and of the eating/moving desire.

WellBeNet collects a vast amount of human behavioral data in free-living conditions that are stored in databases on the ActivCollector server ( These data will be linked together to determine how feelings and behaviors influence each other. Moreover relationships between spontaneous behaviors and metabolism parameters will be explored. With time these data will be used to develop health prediction models and personalized behavioral recommendations to maintain good health.
