A randomized controlled trial designed to assess the impact of the Zamzee accelerometer and online rewards program showed an average 59% higher rate of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among 11-14-year-old adolescents over a six-month period. Those using Zamzee also achieved the CDC-recommended 60 minutes of MVPA/day at a rate 4.5 times that of the control group. The study included 448 participants recruited from six urban, suburban, and rural U.S. middle schools.
