Innovative applications of mobile information and communication technology (ICT) include the recent use of mobile services for preventive health interventions. We report on a one-month empirical study of such an intervention to evaluate a model that includes positive user adoption factors, together with user perceptions impeding adoption. Findings revealed intrinsic motivation to be a sufficient reason for adoption, and a multi-faceted perceived overall risk as the main reason for resisting the new mobile health service.
