Starting on Monday, April 20, 2009, Walkabout Technologies is proud to announce that we will participate in a 10 week study of childhood obesity in the Peoria area.

This is a collaborative study with OSF St. Francis Medical Center, Exergame Fitness USA, Peoria Park District, gitm (Gifts in the Moment) llc, and the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria (UICOMP) and is spearheaded by Peoria pediatrician, Dr. Amy Christison.

The objectives of the study will demonstrate that a weight loss program for children using “exergaming technology” can result in weight loss, improve self-image and change behaviors that will promote weight loss.Walkabout Technologies will participate in this important event by utilizing its wireless technology to monitor and report each child’s activity level.

The Intelliped, which is a wireless pedometer with an accelerometer, can calculate the activity steps of each child and report its findings automatically and electronically.
