Designers create images, images create meanings. mHealth-apps collect and visualize information about the bodies of their users. Thereby, ›personal body experience‹ is designed. An analysis of the state of the art can show that numbers and graphics are used for this. Their unambiguousness contradicts health concepts as individual and negotiable variables. By ›approximating‹ the visualizations to pictorial representations, the generation of meaning could be returned to the users.
