YouPlus Health recently announced the results of a 12-week user study that purportedly reveal the positive impacts of the platform.
The science-driven mobile health coaching platform was subjected to a peer-reviewed study recently published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) mHealth and uHealth.
The study found that users of YouPlus Health’s mobile app experienced significant reductions in body weight, waist circumference, and both systolic and diastolic blood pressures, while attaining significant increases in HDL and VO2 max.
Participants completed a small number of simple baseline questions within the application and received digital, personalized feedback throughout the program. Results from this study show that YouPlus Health has the potential to significantly help users become healthier.
“As a practicing physician, I realized there were not any mobile health applications that I felt comfortable recommending to my patients. I teamed up with a group of world-class physicians, psychologists and MIT-trained computer scientists to design a health and fitness application that would actually get my patients the results they were looking for,” said Steven Willey, MD and Chief Scientist of YouPlus Health. “I am excited that this application, which is based on years of clinical experience, is now available to the public. Our goal is to help as many people as possible achieve weight loss, better fitness, improved metabolic performance and better overall health.”
YouPlus Health is now available to download at no charge for iOS and Android devices.
