About hiSG Lite
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 Lite is a complementary study to the 2-year hiSG study which seeks to better understand the health behaviour and lifestyles of Singapore residents through wearable technology. hiSG Lite 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 participants will be armed with a study device – a Fitbit Luxe Tracker which collects user data such as physical activity and sleep patterns. The more we learn about you, the more successful our research will be, so you 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?
Rewards await all hiSG Lite participants! In addition to the free health insights, you will get to keep the health tracker. You will 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 will not be affected should you not wish to participate in this study.
