BodyMedia pioneered the development of wearable body monitors that give consumers information they can use to make changes to their own health. With a proprietary sensor system, 70 patents and more pending, BodyMedia has commercialized its technology in a weight management system that has been adopted by medical, weight loss and fitness professionals as well as directly by consumers. The BodyMedia platform is the only system of its kind that is registered with the FDA as a Class II medical device and that has been clinically proven to enhance weight loss up to three times compared to behavioral support alone. The company now plans to extend its platform to help manage other conditions affected by lifestyle choices. BodyMedia was founded in 1999 and is headquartered in Pittsburgh.
