Active Aging deals with the support and integration of the elderly population in a society focusing on improving physical and mental well-being. Persuasive technology provides solutions for tailored interventions aiming at maintaining an active lifestyle. The present paper introduces the initial ideas of a PhD trajectory that proposes to design and develop a tailored monitoring and coaching system for the promotion of Active Aging based on principles of physical and mental well-being. This is a multidisciplinary research that uses theories from Positive Psychology to determine input / output and informatics for the data processing and decision making system.
