"BodyMedia is pleased to be participating in the dialogue this week at the mHealth Summit and we are excited to share the results of these important public health findings in conjunction with this critical meeting of mobile health experts," said Christine Robins, Chief Executive Officer of BodyMedia. "These studies not only build on a growing body of clinical data that shows BodyMedia Armbands are an accurate way to measure energy balance, but are also successful tools for weight loss, and solidify their importance in addressing important public health concerns like obesity."
