The National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2), an agency of the Department of Defense, has been introducing online and mobile health tools for people in the military, veterans, and their families since 2008. Their newest offering, BioZen, is an effort to get ahead of the trend of personal sensors and provide a free mobile tool to help people use those sensors to improve their health through the practice of biofeedback.

“One of the things we do here at T2 is constantly look for ways to innovate mobile health. Wearable technology is one of our interests,” David Cooper, a psychologist at T2, told MobiHealthNews. “One thing we didn’t see a lot of was people using biosensors for biofeedback. But we found a way to integrate some biosensors through the mobile phone using Bluetooth.”
