Medicine and Technology

Many people have seen reports of the recent JAMA study titled, “Effect of Wearable Technology Combined With a Lifestyle Intervention on Long-term Weight Loss: The IDEA Randomized Clinical Trial.” Published in Sept, 2016, this study would appear to be a reflection of recent trends in activity tracking and weight loss strategies. So although the authors acknowledge that “The multisensor wearable device was worn on the upper arm, which may not reflect the effectiveness of more contemporary devices worn on the wrist…”. The authors also state, “The use of wearable technology was not initiated at the onset of the intervention, which may have influenced how the participants adopted and used the technology during their weight loss efforts…” Many people are missing this point. If the goal is to sustain lasting behavior changes that will lead to weight loss and healthy eating, then you need to study devices that people will easily wear daily, devices that will provide useful feedback in real-time, and devices that won’t make people self-conscious about their attempt to lose weight. If you’re not accustomed to strapping a large device to your arm, then you’ll be one of the first ones to stop using the device after a few weeks or months.
