Abstract

Due to the increased risk of human’s health conditions and developed technologies, which have altered the way of living of the people in many different ways leading to one of the well-known adverse effects-the obesity. Numerous methods and condition have played a vital role in the field of obesity related health care technology. To reduce the risk of obesity condition in humans, the way of encouraging the people’s mentality is the promising factor and healthy way. To develop a device that will help an obese patient and also normal person to reduce the fat and stay fit is the main aim of this project. A device that can calculate the calories burnt during our normal physical activities such as walking and running and also to classify what type of activity that can be shown up to the person with a android phone, that in turn acts as a motivational tool to stay in a fit and healthy manner. The accelerometer is a widely used sensor for movement related activities that can be used in many different methods for various application. Implementing an algorithm that can detect the steps along with the calorie calculation and the activity classification.
