Abstract

The potential benefits of promotion of physical activity for whole populations and at-risk individuals have become a well-established agenda for public health with various meta-analyses that have suggested physical fitness to be an important predictor of morbidity and mortality in adults. Lifestyle behaviors, such as diet and physical activity, are modifiable risk factors associated with many noncommunicable diseases, and chronic pathologies and health condition, such as obesity. To date, many intervention programs targeting physical activity and dietary changes have had modest effects and their long-term effectiveness is not well established. Thus, public health researchers have begun to examine novel approaches to deliver behavior change interventions. Mobile and wireless technology (health) is a growing area in the prevention and management of obesity that holds potential to deliver health-related behavior change interventions.
