State: Victoria

Status: Ongoing

Opportunity

Improve the uptake and effectiveness of existing digital tools aimed at lifestyle modifications, such as weight control.

Project objective

This project will trial two digital tools, the Hunger app© and the FutureMe app©, aimed at triggering modifiable lifestyle change and to collect data on engagement with the tools and attempts at weight management.

Lifestyle modification and weight control are a priority in Australia with over 60-80 per cent of the population classified as overweight or obese. Currently in healthcare, weight management protocols are known to be ineffective or only marginally effective.
