Stanford University Study
"Computer-generated phone call reminders are an effective, low-cost method to encourage sedentary adults to exercise, a new Stanford University School of Medicine study suggests.
The yearlong study of 218 people over the age of 55 found that regular phone reminders by either health educators or an automated computer system were equally good at nudging the participants into a regular 150-minute per week exercise regimen.
At the start of this study, 80 percent to 85 percent of the participants said they would prefer or need a live human voice to prompt them to exercise. The results showed that wasn't true. After six months, the group receiving calls from people and the group receiving computer calls were doing the same amount of exercise. After one year, there was little difference between the two groups -- 157 minutes per week for those who received computer calls and 178 minutes a week for those who received human voice calls.
A control group that received no reminder calls averaged 118 minutes of exercise a week."
The study was published in an issue of Health Psychology.
Workout Reminders For Seniors
CARE (Call Reassurance) is a telephone reassurance program designed to check on the well-being of seniors.
The CARE program also can send reminders to seniors for such things as medication reminders or other types of reminders.
The CARE system can also be used to send simple exercise reminders to seniors as well. For seniors who wish to maintain a regular workout schedule, this reminder system can provide that added incentive to keep on a regular fitness program.
Maintaining A Regular Exercise Program
Sticking to a regular workout schedule is a key to a healthy and active lifestyle. This can now be a much easier task with just a simple fitness reminder call. Excercise reminder calls can be automatically broadcast to yourself or to a group of individuals who wish to workout together.
Managing your workout reminder calls is easy. Simply record your reminder message using our 800 phone service. Next specify the individual (yourself) or a list of individuals who are to receive this message. This list can be built online and can be stored for later use. A calender schedule can be maintained online to help you designate the dates and times that your fitness schedule dictates.
Then simply send reminders by submitting this information to our call center.
