  • Consumers and researchers lack an easy-to-use, reliable and cost efficient way to accurately assess physical activity and energy expenditure, a critical component of successful weight management. BodyMedia has addressed this need by developing the SenseWear™ Armband which utilizes a 2 axis-accelerometer, heat flux sensor, galvanic skin response sensor, skin temperature sensor and a near- body ambient temperature sensor to gather data leading to the calculation of energy expenditure.
