About hiSG in GUSTO Women and Children

Imagine a future where a personal digital health assistant understands your mind, body and nutritional needs and generates lifestyle recommendations based on data provided by YOU and other fellow Singaporeans.

This is just one of the many exciting possibilities that could be realised with Health Insights Singapore, or hiSG.

hiSG in GUSTO Women and Children is a study which seeks to better understand the health behaviours and lifestyles of mothers and children in Singapore through wearable technology. This study gives you the option of participating with a shorter commitment period of 6 months with an option to extend your participation up to 2 years.

It monitors participants throughout the study period and collects lifestyle and behavioural data across various health topics such as physical activity, nutrition and mental wellbeing. The data will be used by HPB to examine associations across health behaviours and eventually develop programmes powered by artificial intelligence engines for our population. This will in turn contribute to the development of health promotion policies and programmes.

All mothers and children participating in this study will each be armed with a wearable device – a Fitbit Luxe health tracker, which collects user data such as physical activity and sleep patterns. The more we learn about you and your child, the more successful our research will be, so you and your child are encouraged to wear the device as often as possible, answer questionnaires and log your meals on the hiSG mobile app.

What’s in it for me and my child?

Rewards await all study participants! In addition to the free health insights, both you and your child will get to keep the wearable devices. You and your child will each also earn HPB Healthpoints by using the study device, completing questionnaires and recording meal logs. These Healthpoints can be combined with the points gained from other HPB programmes to redeem shopping and dining vouchers, as well as EZ-link top-ups.

Do note that your participation in HPB programmes and/or GUSTO study will not be affected should you not wish to participate in this study.
