Abstract

The University of Canberra Health Research Institute (UC-HRI) and Data61 are undertaking the first ACT-wide study involving Fitbit™ Activity Tracker users to create a detailed picture of health and physical activity levels of Canberrans. Researchers will study how data from activity trackers can help identify lifestyle behavioural risk-factors for the prevention of chronic disease, e.g. type 2 diabetes, heart disease. Using data from activity trackers and wearable devices, we can aggregate de-identified data into groups and sub-populations and examine how your work, home and neighbourhood environment can have impact on your physical activity levels. Findings from the project will be used to inform future city planning for Canberra so we can live in a city which encourages and enables physical activity for all.
