This study applies persuasive technology and case based reasoning to facilitate product design leading to life style of sustainability and health (LOHAS) that contains physical activity. Concepts of case based reasoning including setting domain model, retrieving, and reusing cases are utilized to extract knowledge from existing cases while methods of persuasive technology are modified for building a domain model and facilitating LOHAS product design. The domain model used to record existing cases includes bodily movement, behavior flavors, technology used, design principles, and design patterns. Designers could get useful suggestion of design principles, design patterns, and technology used in conceptual design stage by inputting intended body movement and behavior flavors. Frequently used design principles and patterns are identified and suggested by conducting statistical analysis on retrieved cases.
