Mobile Health Biometrics to Enhance Exercise and Physical Activity Adherence in Type 2 Diabetes

Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University would like to recruit people type 2 diabetes aged 40-75 who have been diagnosed within the last two years to take part in a study. It hopes to investigate if mobile health technology, for example the use of smartphones, wearable technologies and apps, makes it easier for people with type 2 diabetes to begin and maintain a physically active lifestyle. 

Participants will co-design their own 6-month personalised exercise and physical activity programme with a specialist. In one group participants will just receive the exercise programme and in another group participants will also receive a fitness watch linked to a mobile phone app. This will help the researchers to understand if this technology has any added benefits.
