The BodyChangers App

Although their campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to ICU StoryWeb, you may always do so here.


The Problem

Convenience, motivation, and time are among the biggest barriers to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Many people don’t have access to healthy options at every point throughout the day, or simply can’t find the time to exercise and eat right. 

Our Solution

The BodyChangers App will be an on-the-go tool that empowers individuals to take control of their own health outcomes by offering rewards for making healthy choices. Users can earn reward points by choosing a healthy meal, selecting a healthy snack, working out, or participating in a group fitness class at any “BodyChangers approved” location. Our local partners will include restaurants, exercise facilities, grocery and retail stores.

As points accumulate, they can be redeemed for other healthy options. For instance, you may earn points by eating healthy meals, then use the points towards free or discounted fitness classes. Daily games (like guessing calorie or protein content between food items) will be offered for small reward values to educate users and keep people engaged.

We currently have a network of local partners willing to participate in this initiative. All we need is the app! We plan to continue expanding our network as interest for the program grows.

The BodyChangers App will help put healthy living in the palm of your hand!

Why it will work

Health research consistently demonstrates that health outcomes are improved with rewards and social interactions. Rewards will be scaled to encourage more physical and social activities, such as attending a group exercise class. This would encourage people to build healthy habits and make friends with like-minded people to further support healthy behaviors.

How your support will help

Our goal of $7,000 is based on the cost to build the initial prototype of the BodyChangers App.

  • $3,000: Basic, single-platform app (development, design, testing)

    • Funds will be used to establish user profile and user access control, database structure and object model associations, communication routers and ports, quiz systems, cellphone data expenses.

  • $2,000: Hardware (electronic, mechanical, structural components, development kits, consumable supplies)
    • Funds will be used to obtain a development-grade computer, 3 iPhones, and backup drives

  • $2,000: Web Hosting Services
    • Funds will be used for Web Hosting services including a live server environment, testing server environment, app gamification, and analytics.
