UNLOCKING HEALTH AND CONFIDENCE: The Fit2Go Body Screen Revolution - 24/04/2024


We're thrilled to announce groundbreaking research being presented today at the University of Derby Physiological Symposium. Lo, T.L. Barthelot, R., Morton, L., Lewis, J., Shaw, J., North, R., and Lowton-Smith, S. (2024) unveiling the remarkable impact of the Fit2Go Body Screen© on health, lifestyle, and risk factors for injury and chronic disease.

Physical inactivity exacts a heavy toll, costing $27 billion annually in associated economic burdens (WHO, 2023). Yet, the World Health Organization (WHO, 2022) has set a global action plan to increase physical activity by 2030. Enter technology as a vital ally in this mission. Weber et al. (2021) highlight technology's role in supporting behavior change, a strategy crucial for promoting physical activity.

Employing the Behavior Change Wheel and COM-B framework (Michie et al., 2011), Fit2Go emerged as a promising intervention to bolster physical activity. Fit2Go Body Screen©, a web-based tool crafted by Nottingham-based physiotherapists, has emerged as a beacon of hope. This innovative tool employs algorithms to assess an individual's health, body, and lifestyle, crafting tailored exercises and advice to improve overall well-being.

But how effective is it? Preliminary data from the University of Derby symposium suggests a resounding success. Participants underwent assessments, including the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ), Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9), Generalized Anxiety Disorder Assessment (GAD-7), and mHealth App Usability Questionnaire (MAUQ). Scores from these assessments, combined with daily step counts, were analyzed using IBM SPSS, employing ANOVA tests to gauge outcomes.

The results are nothing short of astonishing. Fit2Go Body Screen© not only provides tailored exercises and advice but also instills confidence in users to engage in physical activity safely. University students and staff, in particular, stand to benefit greatly from this innovative tool. Interim data suggests users perceive the software as invaluable for health and well-being, with self-reported physical activity showing promising trends.
