What is Kurbo
Kurbo is a family based behavior modification program that helps children and teens reach their health and weight goals using a mobile app and weekly personal coaching via video chat.
Kurbo is based on Stanford University’s Pediatric Weight Control Program. It is designed specifically for kids and teens above the 85th percentile to help them manage their weight.
Kurbo is proven effective.
Our peer-reviewed, published research shows that Kurbo coaching works. Take a look at our results:
One study found that kids and teens stick with Kurbo; 80% completed their program
The same study found that the more sessions kids and teens had with their coaches, the more successful they were in lowering their BMI percentile
Independent analysis of our data shows that 84% of kids and teens improved their relative weight status with Kurbo
