Need accountability? Yes.

Wish you had a weight management expert to give you ongoing advice? Absolutely.

Would you like this expert guidance even if you don't live in Charleston or South Carolina? That would be great!

The MUSC Health Weight Management Center is now offering a one-of-a-kind service that utilizes the latest technology to help you lose and manage your weight. This program is open to anyone, regardless of where you live, and no matter whether you’re in one of our programs or any other weight loss program. Using wireless bathroom scales, wearable activity sensors, and online/app-based behavior tracking, we closely monitor your weight, activity/exercise, and dietary intake. Registered dietitians, exercise physiologists, and psychology staff then send you weekly personalized and "immersive" video-recorded feedback and recommendations.

You don’t have to do this on your own. Let our experts guide you along the way!

 

You can now use pre-tax money from your flexible spending account, medical spending account, or health savings account to pay for this program

 

Want to see what the personalized and immersive feedback actually looks like? Below is an actual weekly monitoring and feedback video sent by Dr. Josh Brown (WMC Psychologist) to one of our program participants.

  1. Fitbit Aria Smart Wi-Fi Scale (requires home Wi-Fi)*
  2. Fitbit Zip Activity Tracker
  3. Access to a comprehensive set of online/app-based tracking tools (e.g., weight tracking, dietary tracking, activity tracking, etc.), any and all of which we will monitor. Data from your Fitbit scale/devices get synced automatically.
