- A randomised controlled trial of mobile digital technology for overweight people with diabetes is feasible.
- Technology was acceptable to this population as shown in their high level of adherence to the device and from feedback at focus group sessions.
- Technology was seen to be a motivational tool for increase in exercise and diet-control.
- Overall, after 3 months of using the intervention, over 30% of the intervention arm participants lost a clinically significant amount of weight, while over 65% of the intervention arms had a significant decrease in blood glucose levels.
