BodyMedia Collaborates on Federal Health Research Study
Date:12/11/2012

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BodyMedia today announced a collaboration with the National Cancer Institute's Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch (RFMMB) that will leverage data collected by BodyMedia's wearable body monitors to study long-term patterns of physical activity and sleep to enhance assessment methods for future chronic disease research. BodyMedia's database will give RFMMB scientists access to a large sample of long-term, around-the-clock measurements of physical activity and sleep patterns that are unavailable from virtually any other source at the same scale and level of detail. BodyMedia analysts will also assist the RFMMB team in mining the data for patterns relevant to their research.

The data has been captured by BodyMedia armbands worn day and night by tens of thousands of consumers for weight management and research purposes. Full privacy protections will apply, with no personally identifiable information available to researchers.

Four sensors embedded in the armbands collect over 5,000 physiological readings per minute to measure physical activity duration and intensity level, steps taken, calorie burn, and sleep duration and efficiency. The continuous nature of armband use provides a comprehensive long-term picture of all daily activity ranging from formal exercise to work, household tasks and transportation.

Researchers will use the data to explore long-term activity patterns and the impact of features such as frequency, duration, intensity and type of physical activity and sleep on behavior maintenance and change. Findings will be used to assist in profiling long-term patterns of physical activity across age and gender groups, developing sampling methods for measuring physical activity levels in future health research and surveillance, and developing automated intervention strategies to support behavior change.

Studies consistently show that increasing physical activity reduces the risk o
