Four diseases cost more money and destroy more lives than all other conditions globally
- heart disease
- lung disease
Lifestyle is the most important common factor in the prevention, treatment and management of these and many other conditions. Physical inactivity is a global problem, related to 3.2 million deaths worldwide and is the fourth leading risk factor for premature mortality (World Health Organization, 2010).
How our technology helps
The Activinsights Band provides an opportunity to tackle these issues in a preventative and cost-effective manner. It allows lifestyle issues to be addressed, empowering healthcare professionals with objective patient lifestyle data to support screening and behaviour change programmes. Professional wearables also provide a tool for the management of long-term conditions, such as diabetes, where the Activinsights Band can be worn continuously to learn more about disease progression and adherence to lifestyle prescriptions.
Lifestyle is fundamental in understanding the intricacies of people’s daily lives and how behaviours impact health. If you are interested in population level research the GENEActiv may be more suitable, as a wrist-worn, raw data accelerometer.
