Bravata, D.M., Smith-Spangler, C., Sundaram, V., Gienger, A.L., Lin, N., Lewis, R., ... Sirard, J.R. (2007). Using pedometers to increase physical activity and improve health: a systematic review. Journal of Americal Medical Association 298 (pp. 2296-2304)

Objective: To evaluate the association of pedometer use with physical activity and health outcomes among outpatient adults.

Conclusions: The results suggest that the use of a pedometer is associated with significant increases in physical activity and significant decreases in body mass index and blood pressure. Whether these changes are durable over the long term is undetermined.
