The healthcare application domain has potential for research in the computer science field and Android domain. The built-in sensors and interfaces for virtual reality plugged in to the Android platform makes it a viable option for developers and end users. The B-Activ Android application builds a platform, which unlike other healthcare applications, ensures that the user is provided with essential input to indulge in an active life. External factors such as climate, pollution levels in the vicinity, and the user’s Body Mass Index (BMI) affect a person’s involvement in exercise and are central to the B-Activ application. B-Activ allows users to interact through traffic and pollution updates with people in the same city. The scope of B-Activ is to ensure that the user is active enough through simple exercises in order to control the cholesterol level and obesity thereby reducing the chances of deadly diseases.
