Validation of CalFit

CalFit is a smartphone application that tracks a user’s time-location and physical activity patterns developed by our group. ¬†It showcases¬†the latest research in energy expenditure and activity tracking algorithms developed through collaboration between UC Berkeley Engineering and the School of Public Health, and validated at UC Davis Medical Center.

We have completed validation of CalFit against both the Actigraph and the COSMED in the laboratory with seed funding from CITRIS.

We now have a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIH/NIEHS) to validate CalFit in two field epidemiological studies: the Healthy Places Study based at USC in Southern California, and the TAPAS study based at CREAL in Barcelona, Spain.
