IAI releases the MOXIEfit™ App for Android mobile devices

MOXIEfit™, developed by Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), provides a virtual personal trainer on a smartphone, to motivate and support a step-by-step achievable weight loss program. MOXIEfit’s virtual personal trainer, Mandy, provides personalized coaching during workouts to help users stay motivated and stick with their fitness program. Mandy helps the user create a weight loss program that includes a weekly workout schedule and weigh-ins. Mandy reminds the user when it is time to exercise and provides motivational feedback throughout the workout. Mandy praises the user for keeping on track with their weight loss goal and automatically adjusts the plan if the user gets off track – all without counting calories! MOXIEfit is the first smartphone application to provide a virtual personal trainer that cares about helping users get fit. Another key feature of MOXIEfit is MOXIEmatch™, an adaptive music feedback system that matches songs from the user’s music library to the workout tempo. If there are no songs that perfectly match the tempo, MOXIEmatch increases or decreases the music speed to match the workout pace. This feature, coupled with Mandy’s personalized coaching, ensures users get the most benefits from their exercise. MOXIEfit can sync user data online using CarePass, Aetna’s personal health cloud that automatically syncs data between the user’s favorite health and wellness apps. As part of the CarePass ecosystem, MOXIEfit syncs fitness data such calories burned, distance, and steps as well as body measurements from weekly weigh-ins that can then be viewed online alongside health and wellness data such as nutrition from other apps. “MOXIEfit takes a simple approach to losing weight,” according to Timothy Judkins, IAI’s mHealth Program Manager. “While MOXIEfit has all the capabilities you would expect in today’s fitness apps, the addition of the virtual personal trainer and features like MOXIEmatch will significantly help users adopt and follow a weight loss program.” Beyond helping users lose weight, MOXIEfit was originally developed as part of an Army SBIR program to support physical rehabilitation. “Adherence to a rehabilitation program is critical for a successful recovery from injury for our wounded warriors. We see real potential for an application that could provide motivation during the recovery period," said Ashley Fisher, Health and Wellness Domain Coordinator, U.S. Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC). MOXIEfit is available for Android mobile devices as a 30-day free trial and can be downloaded from the Google Play store to any Android mobile device. MOXIEfit also offers users a price discount if the application is purchased within 14 days.
