A Second Life for Unused Wearable Activity Trackers
If you have a Fitbit or other activity tracker and stop using it or upgrade, what do you do with the old one? There are few options to recycle or resell it. Enter RecycleHealth.
My hypothesis is that the people who are least likely to own wearables are those who might benefit most. I am requesting donations of unused wearables through RecycleHealth and then giving them a second life by using the refurbished, donated wearables in pilots with populations who rarely purchase and are unlikely to afford them.
RecycleHealth was described in the Boston Globe business section: http://www.betaboston.com/news/2015/07/02/recyclehealth-wants-to-donate-that-fitbit-sitting-in-your-sock-drawer/.
