New USB technology adds accountability and convenience to wellness programs
Date:11/27/2009

KELOWNA, BC, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ - Uploadable USB pedometers may be new, but they're already seeing prime time in wellness. A combination of advanced accelerometer functionality and automated data upload are solving a long term concern over the accuracy of self-reported data. It's now possible to accurately gauge and reward improved participation in a fitness program.

CoreHealth Technologies is one of the first wellness suppliers to integrate this technology. "Our health challenges are easy to administer and participate in... an inspirational approach that has proven effective," comments CEO Anne Marie Kirby, "but USB pedometers add a whole new dimension. Users simply plug the pedometer into the computer, a greeting comes up asking if the steps are to be uploaded, and then the website opens to show the participants their achievement in the health challenge. It's the ultimate in convenience. Anyone can do it."

CoreHealth's motivational software for online fitness, weight loss, nutrition, and other challenges is used throughout the world by organizations with 1000 or more employees. Participants have used pedometers before, but never with such convenience. "We find pedometers can increase success," states Jeff Goreski, Implementation Specialist. "Now participants can be fully engaged regardless of age or computer skill. This new technology has opened wide doors for prevention."

The USB pedometers use specialized technology exclusive to Pacific Rim Wellness. A full week of steps information is retained within the device, so people don't have to upload daily to accurately report, and a new accelerometer monitors and stores fitness intensity. Users simply connect to the computer once a week to update their personal fitness record. "Pedometers now offer uncompromised accountability and accuracy for health and wellness programs," comments Pacific Rim Wellness administrator Robert Dyke.
