Project Description

SmartMomsleft SmartlossleftSmartMoms is a smartphone-based intervention for helping a subject achieve and

maintain appropriate weight-gain during pregnancy. SmartMoms is used to help pregnant women have a healthy lifestyle while they live in their natural environments. This app compiles weight (using connected Bodytrace scales) and physical activity data (currently using Fitbit accelerometers) from people to help them meet their exercise and gestational weight gain goals. To help people reach their goals, SmartMoms gives them daily feedback about their weight and physical activity, including if they are on track to reach their objectives. If not on track, suggestions are made to facilitate achievement of one’s goals.

The app includes complex algorithms for determining health weight gain. These algorithms are stored in the cloud so that they are available cross platform and can be  tweaked as needed. The cloud also stores weekly educational content served up to the app.
