  • Consumers, clinicians, and researchers lack an easy-to-use, reliable and cost effi cient way to accurately assess metabolic physical activity and energy expenditure, critical components of a variety of behavioral modifi cation programs, including diseaseand weight-management. BodyMedia has addressed this need by developing the SenseWear Pro2 Armband which utilizes a heat fl ux sensor, galvanic skin response sensor, skin temperature sensor, nearbody temperature sensor, and a two axis… CONTINUE READING
