About Us

BodyMedia pioneered the development of wearable body monitors that collect physiological data for use in improving health, wellness and fitness. The company’s around-the-clock on-body monitors utilize proprietary technology to capture data used by consumers as well as health and wellness professionals to guide behavioral changes to help control weight and promote an active lifestyle – two factors that are routinely cited as keys to combat and manage serious medical conditions. BodyMedia technology has been used in over 100 clinical research studies covering health issues such as obesity, COPD, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, cancer, bariatrics, sleep and intensive care. The company was founded in 1999 and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of AliphCom dba Jawbone®, creators of human-centered wearable technology like the UP® band.
