The Results are in: Users of BodyMedia's Wearable Body-Monitoring Technology Lose 3 Times More Weight
Date:3/11/2010

Blair, who conducted the study at The Arnold School of Public Health, University of South Carolina.  "The results show that people who wear BodyMedia's body-monitoring technology while participating within a group weight loss program can lose up to three times as much weight as the participants who did not use BodyMedia's technology during the study.  For those who participated with only the aid of the BodyMedia armband and online web application (no group sessions), the results are equally encouraging: these participants lost more than twice as much weight as those without the benefit of the BodyMedia technology.  From my perspective and long experience in this field, I believe this technology can have a profound effect on weight loss, as well as leading to healthier lifestyles. This is a pioneering study as to the effect of a multi-sensor wearable body monitoring system on weight loss outcomes. I am unaware of another study incorporating wearable technology that has presented such a dramatic increase in results in support of a consumer's weight loss goals."

Based on the promise of the initial results from the first four months of the clinical trial, Dr. Blair indicated that the final results from the nine month study should show continuing weight loss trends as the participants continued to incorporate the BodyMedia wearable technology into their lifestyles.

"Given the critical issues in our country resulting from obesity and rising healthcare costs, it is very exciting to announce these groundbreak
