Breezing: Mobile health devices for obesity and weight management

In the Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors, Biodesign Institute, Arizona State University, NJ Tao, Erica Forzani and other researchers focus on cell phone-based health devices for the prevention and management of chronic diseases. The center develops wireless chemical sensors and biosensors to monitor various breath biomarkers, and integrates the sensors with intelligent smartphone apps to provide personalized and evidence-based obesity and weight management.  A recent creation is Breezing, the world’s first mobile metabolism tracker that syncs with smartphones. Breezing is based on indirect calorimetry, the gold standard method recommended by American Dietetic Association for weight management. It tracks metabolism over time, and creates a personalized diet and exercises plan specific to everyone.
