Physical Activity: Interventions Including Activity Monitors for Adults who are Overweight or Obese


What the Task Force Found

About The Systematic Review

The CPSTF considers recently published systematic reviews to provide public health professionals and decision-makers with effective intervention options. A team of specialists in systematic review methods and in physical activity promotion research, practice, and policy selected and evaluated the following published review:

de Vries HJ, Kooiman TJM, van Ittersum MW, van Brussel M, de Groot M. Do activity monitors increase physical activity in adults with overweight or obesity? A systematic review and meta-analysis. Obesity 2016;24(10):2076-91.

The review included 14 randomized controlled trials and a meta-analysis of 11 of these studies (search period through July 2015). The team examined each of the studies included in the systematic review and abstracted supplemental information about study, intervention, and population characteristics.

The CPSTF finding is based on results from the published review, additional information from the included studies, and expert input from team members and the CPSTF.
