The Step into Support for Endurance and Strength (SISTERS) research study is evaluating whether a mobile health game designed to increase physical activity is feasible and acceptable in patients with gynecologic cancers.

-SISTERS is testing a mobile health intervention can help increase physical activity. Participants will be randomized to receive either 1) a Fitbit or 2) a Fitbit + a game + help from a friend or family member whom you chose will help the participant reach their goals. (i.e. a Teammate).


This study is a two-arm randomized controlled pilot study designed to test the feasibility and acceptability of using a wearable accelerometer (Fitbit) vs. a wearable accelerometer (FItbit) + a game designed to help participants increase physical activity + social support improves participants' average daily step counts.

Eligible Participants will be randomly assigned into 1 of 2 groups

  1. Fitbit (wearable accelerometer) or
  2. Fitbit (wearable accelerometer) + game + help from a self-selected teammate

The study interventions involved in this research are:

  • Surveys/Interviews
  • Fitbits (also known as a wearable accelerometers or fitness trackers)
  • Way to Health Platform
  • Help from a Teammate (i.e. a friend or family member that participants choose to help them reach their goals)

It is expected that about 50 people will take part in this research study.
