In this paper we describe guidelines derived from developing a mobile touchscreen based assistive tool which aims to maintain and improve individual health conditions and support physical activity by elderly. We do not focus on the features of the tool but rather on the general insights about the persuasive technology that were gained from interviews, focus groups and iterative co-creation workshops.
