Body Monitors Deliver Better Weight Loss Results at Half the Cost: Study to Be Presented at ACSM Meeting
Date:5/30/2012

SAN FRANCISCO, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The use of an armband-based body monitoring system proved to be the most cost-effective of four approaches to weight loss examined by researchers in an analysis that will be presented at the American College of Sports Medicine's 59th Annual Meeting and 3rd World Congress on Exercise is Medicine this week in San Francisco. The study, "An Economic Analysis of Traditional and Technology-Based Approaches to Weight Loss: LEAN Study Cost-Effectiveness," calculated the cost of all four approaches in terms of the ratio of weight loss to staff time and materials.  The cost for armband users was $51 per participant per kilogram lost – less than half of the $129 associated with group weight loss education.

The principal investigator of the study was Steven N. Blair, Professor, Department of Exercise Science and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Arnold School of Health, at the University of South Carolina. Detailed results will be presented in an upcoming issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

The analysis was based on the same team's earlier randomized controlled trial of 197 sedentary, overweight and obese adults comparing the use of standard care, group weight loss education, a multi-sensor armband, and the use of an armband in conjunction with group weight loss education. In that study, known as the Lifestyle Education for Activity and Nutrition (LEAN) study, groups using an armband were equipped with the BodyMedia® armband body monitoring system from BodyMedia, Inc. 

The LEAN study showed that participants using BodyMedia's wearable body monitoring technology either with a group weight loss program or as part of their own self-directed program lost three time
