This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition breast cancer
Treatments technology-based physical activity promotion, pedometer intervention
Sponsor University of California, San Diego
Start date April 2013
End date December 2014
Trial size 50 participants
Trial identifier NCT01837147, 1R03CA168450-01


Women who are overweight or do not exercise are at higher risk for breast cancer after menopause. This study will test a new electronic device that measures the body's movement and works alongside a website to help women increase their physical activity level. If effective, this system could be tested in larger studies aiming to reduce breast cancer risk by reducing or preventing obesity.
