mDiet - Ecological Momentary Intervention of Diet Via Mobile Technology

2014-07-23 21:34:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a NCI funded study which will develop and evaluate a cell phone application (mDIET) that can be used as an assessment and intervention tool to improve dietary behaviors and thus reduce weight in overweight and moderately obese (BMI 25-34.9) men and women ages 25-55.

Description

This research will develop a technologically advanced system for monitoring and intervening on diet behaviors (e.g., food intake, weight). Interventions aimed at dietary change are missing a comparable, portable tool. Mobile technologies can help fill this gap by providing portable connectivity to expert systems that create specific tailored diet goals based on participant profiles. The expert system can 'push' intervention messages throughout the day during critical point-of-decision moments to aid in decision making among users. The portable device can 'pull' information through prompts and easy-to-use recording. This ecological momentary assessment + ecological momentary intervention format may further encourage healthy behaviors by prompting at critical decision points to improve dietary behaviors.

Utilization of wireless phones for communication.

Analog or digital communications device in which the user has a wireless connection from a telephone to a nearby transmitter. It is termed cellular because the service area is divided into multiple "cells." As the user moves from one cell area to another, the call is transferred to the local transmitter.

Communication between CELL PHONE users via the Short Message Service protocol which allows the interchange of short written messages.
