Using Body Trackers With Patients

Using Body Trackers With Patients | Health | Scoop.it

 

Body Trackers are the small devices that we wear on our bodies that track our every motion, providing a lot of data that could be beneficial for patient care.


Doctors always wonder what their patients actually do after being told to “lose weight” or “eat healthier.”  Well, with devices like this and access by medical staff to their patients’ logs you can get a pretty detailed picture.  The idea that their “doctor is watching” might be enough to motivate people to make permanent healthy changes.

 

The flip side is the information can be pretty overwhelming.  Logging food can be a daunting task and people are notorious for under-reporting what they eat.  A patient might get overwhelmed by all the charts and graphs and just throw their hands up and walk away.

 

What are the different types of Body Trackers:

 

Wrist:  Fitbit, Jawbone UP, Nike Fuel all sit on the wrist as a bracelet and track every motion.  Many also have the ability to track sleep and can let you know how much REM sleep you’ve gotten.

 

Wrist w/pulse:  MyBasis has a tightly fitting watch that tracks heart rate patterns, motion, perspiration and skin temperature throughout the day for a more accurate picture of what your body is doing.

 

Waistband:  FitBit is the king right now of the waistband crowd (although they just introduced a wrist version).  Same basic tracking but it tucks insideyour waistband so you don’t have to advertise what you’re doing.

 

Armband and other areas:  Devices like the BodyBugg sit on the upper arm instead of the wrist or waistband.  There are also several devices just launched or in development phase which have sensors built into clothing.

 

These devices track sleep patterns and movement throughout the day and most of them also have a robust meal diary so people can track calories in vs. calories out. 

 

Sermo  recently asked their physicians how they felt about body tracking systems. 

 

Here are the results.


Question:  Do you use or have you recommended a body/activity tracking system to patients?  


55%    No, not familiar with these

24%    No, but I’ve heard they’re really cool

16%    Yes, Fitbit

3%      Yes, UP (by Jawbone)

2%      Yes, BodyBugg

5 health apps colleges are offering to students

5 health apps colleges are offering to students | Health | Scoop.it

College students are one of the fastest populations to adopt technology trends. According to the Pew Internet and American Life project, 18 to 29-year-olds are the most likely demographic to access health information on their phones. So when a student health service is looking for a way to reach out to more students, an app makes sense.

 

Although many university health services post lists of health apps on their websites, others have gone further and created or licensed apps that target health problems particular to college campuses.

 

Whether its sexually transmitted diseases, contagious disease tracking, or suicide prevention, or just healthy eating, apps on campus are beginning to take root. Here is a list of five smartphone health apps offered to college students by their schools.

Robert Gurley's curator insight, July 14, 2014 12:30 PM

Colleges are ultimately responsible for the health and well-being of the students on campus,  but students are notoriously difficult to coerce into maintaining healthy behaviors through traditional means of communication.

 

By offering mobile apps to students, colleges are acknowledging the power of health apps to encourage a healthy lifestyle - as well as the market penetration of mobile devices among 18-24 year old students.

 

These five health apps are currently being offered by their respective universities - although there are hundreds more at institutions around the country. If collegiate institutions already have access to a mobile development platform like MobileSmith, they can create health apps for different purposes at no additional cost - marketing those apps through campus newsletters or through the health center website.
