“The tool is great for me, and we can work on increasing participation. I am also in the process of expanding my program and want to have Weigh2Rock as one option for patients (especially the ones who travel over an hour to see me).“

"I only wish I could get EVERY child to enroll after completion of HealthyKids."

“From a legal standpoint we have not had ANY issues.”

The Weigh2Rock system allows online self-monitoring of weight by children and adolescents, with online background  guidance/support from their healthcare provider or mentor. 

 What Children Learn
An online "school" teaches a child or teen why they become overweight, what are the health risks, and what are the steps needed to attain a healthy weight. Tips to avoid unhealthy eating, sedentary behavior, and emotional eating are also provided.

 Automated Self-Care (eCare)
A secure “eCare Area” allows self-monitoring of a child's weight, with provider/mentor guidance and support. Children set their goal weights and weight loss rate per week, in conjunction with provider/mentor input. Automatic emails remind the children to weigh-in at the provider-specified interval, and the provider is likewise notified of weigh-ins or non-weigh-ins. An online community of several thousand overweight children and adolescents provides social interaction and peer support by means of monitored bulletin boards, chat rooms, a community "weigh-in page", and online “weight-loss buddies”.

  Minimal Provider/Mentor Time Required
Healthcare providers, PE teachers, personal trainers, counselors, and other mentors may follow and interactively support their overweight children online via the secure eCare Area and a personal "eRoom" for each child. Optional pre-designed message templates and online management tools greatly leverage provider/mentor time, so that only a few minutes per week per child are typically required from the provider/mentor.  Digital photographs of the child and the provider/mentor may personalize interactions, if desired.

 Electronic Accountability
A child may use a specially designed digital scale, called an "eScale" (wireless model shown at left, cabled version lower right), which connects to a computer in a school, clinic, or community center, or to the child's home computer. The eScale automatically sends the child's weight and comments to his/her individual online weight chart. The advantage of the eScale is that it renders the child "electronically accountable", in that the weight value cannot be erroneously entered or changed.  The weight chart results may be viewed at anytime (via password) by the child/parents or by the child's healthcare provider/mentor. The provider/mentor may then post support messages in the child’s secure “eRoom”.

 How does the Weigh2Rock System work?

1) If your organization is interested in our system, please contact us at or or call 206-448-4414 (Seattle).

2) We will set up a private "online group" for you, with whatever name your organization would like, e.g. "HealthyKids".  Your organization's providers or mentors may then register on the weigh2rock site under your organization's online group.  Next, your organization's participating children and teens sign up under the online group and select their provider or mentor from the list.

3) Optional wireless or cabled eScales may be interfaced to computers in your school, clinic, or community center, or to your clients' home computers.  The eScale software is web-based, so that no installation disks are required.  Seven (7) day a week technical assistance is available.

4) Real time data and statistics of each organization's group are available (via password) in Excel spread sheet format, suitable for research studies.

5) We also now have an iPhone app using the same eCare system and suitable for obesity management or research studies.
