The Move for Your Health Pilot Study

The Move for Your Health Pilot Study is a 16-week study in older cancer survivors to replace and break-up sedentary activity with short bouts of light physical activity.


This pilot study will determine the feasibility and acceptability of a mobile health (mHealth) intervention to replace and break-up sedentary time with intermittent bouts of light physical activity. The intervention uses an electronic activity monitor ("Jawbone UP2"; worn on the wrist) that pairs with a mobile app, which together promote awareness and enable self-monitoring of both physical activity (steps per day) and inactivity (wristband gently vibrates after a specified time of inactivity). Pre-post intervention change in objective, subjective, and biologic data will be compared between groups.
