Pennington researchers use soldier data for application
Researchers at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center are putting 20 years of knowledge learned from soldiers into an application that aims to help people improve their health.
Researchers are leveraging what they’ve learned by developing the Army HEALTH, or Healthy Eating, Activity, Lifestyle Training Headquarters program. More than 15,000 soldiers have used the HEALTH app, with regular users improving their performance on fitness tests and meeting military weight standards.
Unlike other lifestyle apps where the focus may be solely on weight loss or mental wellness, Army HEALTH takes a more integrated approach to overall health, incorporating tools related to weight, nutrition and fitness – all integrated with sleep and stress management and mood and mindfulness. Support. The app offers personalized tools to help users achieve specific goals, or simply feel better every day.
Pennington researchers are turning HEALTH into a Z!G for the general population, who face many of the same challenges as active duty soldiers. This includes first responders and frontline healthcare professionals, but also anyone living with a lot of stress and uncertainty.
The revamped app includes personalized workout generators, meal-planning tools complete with grocery lists, and interactive trackers that encourage gradual changes with messaging. The researchers also recently added an artificial intelligence component, so the app can learn more about its user and become more responsive to needs and preferences.
