Formula 1 Technology Tackles Obesity in Unique Healthcare Partnership
Date:1/15/2014

IPSWICH, England, January 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

A study has been launched to test whether technology developed to win races on the Formula 1 track could help to tackle the problem of obesity.  This unique healthcare collaboration between McLaren Applied Technologies (MAT), Stowhealth (a GP surgery based in Stowmarket) and academics at University Campus Suffolk is being funded by healthcare provider Simplyhealth.

Telemetry technology, which is inspired by equipment used to collect data about the on-track performance of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 cars, has been developed to monitor the activity levels of obese individuals in an innovative year-long research study.

The Helping Health Change study, which highlights the role technology can play in supporting healthy futures, aims to educate individuals about the relationship between the energy in their food versus the energy that their body burns through physical activity. This is intended to help them make healthier lifestyle choices, thus preventing long-term health issues from developing.

This cutting-edge weight management programme, supported by insurer Simplyhealth, aims to recruit 90 patients within Stowhealth medical practice.  A sample of individuals will be given an MAT device that will monitor their physical movements and calories burnt. During the research programme participants will receive exercise advice and help with healthy eating habits. Their progress will be analysed by researchers at University Campus Suffolk.

The project is also intended to demonstrate that a partnership of diverse organisations with fresh perspectives on healthcare challenges can help to address significant issues, hopefully inspiring the formation of further innovative projects in future.

Simon Rudland, a GP at Stowhealth who championed the research project said: "Obesity is a problem that affects roughly a qua
