REDWOOD CITY, California, January 8, 2019 / PRNewswire / – The Institute of Healthy Nutrition at the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) completed a validation study of a bracelet to monitor the health of Healbe GoBe2. The 14-day study involved 27 adult volunteers aged 18 to 40 years (11 men and 16 women). The results of the study confirmed the claimed accuracy of the Healbe GoBe2 bracelet when automatically calculating the calories absorbed by the body.
The data from the volunteer food diaries and readings from the GoBe2 bracelet were taken into account. All dishes participating in the study were prepared by trained staff in the professional kitchen of the university in accordance with the HACCP protocol. The research team analyzed the calorie content in all menu items for research volunteers at each meal in the canteen. To determine how well the device and its algorithms evaluated the actual diet of volunteers, the correlation between the food consumed and the data obtained using GoBe2 was examined. The averaged 3-day readings from the GoBe2 bracelet confirmed the accuracy of calorie measurement at 87%. With an increase in the period of wearing the bracelet to 14 days, the accuracy increased to 89.6%.
The fact that the Healbe GoBe2 bracelet is able to track calorie intake with high accuracy is fundamentally different from the wearable devices on the market. Competitor solutions using manual data entry for food and calories typically show calorie accuracy
