Systematic review on mHealth technology for weight management

Dr Katerina Dounavi and Olga Tsoumani conducted a systematic review of the evidence on the feasibility and effectiveness of mHealth technology for weight loss and presented key outcomes in the 8th Conference of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders-European Chapter. It is widely accepted that modification of dietary and physical activity habits leads to a decreased risk for chronic disease, such as cancer and diabetes. The systematic review identified effective behavioural components of mobile health (mHealth) technology as a facilitator of lifestyle changes required for successful weight management. An abstract of the research was published in the Obesity Surgery journal.
