We are helping to meet the challenge of Physical Inactivity, which causes disease and is the 4th leading risk of premature death globally
When used effectively, Physical Activity can be a powerful medication in the fight against disease. Our unique digital innovation now uses this power to deliver individual behaviour change and empowered self-management for health. It is natural, safe and accessible to everyone.
Our Activity HealthCheck
Is designed to accurately evaluate the current Physical Activity of anyone in relation to their health, wellness or chronic disease and immediately identify a strategy for positive change. We can now make the important measurement of Physical Inactivity a valuable addition to any existing health assessment programme.
It is evidence based, dynamic and interactive software which delivers a meaningful measure of individual activity levels and the associated future disease risks
Establishes activity as a diagnostic tool
by using activity as a measurement for future disease risk and delivering actionable behavioural insights that can help improve the understanding of current health status.
How it works
We collect 7-days of accurate physical activity data using the latest on-body monitoring technology.
View your multi-dimensional physical activity profile and the disease risks associated with your level of physical activity. Explore your data for the different elements and see how you compare to the guidelines.
Physical Activity and Health
Leading an active lifestyle can prevent type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, some cancers, and other common serious conditions – reducing the risk of developing each by at least 30%. Based on evidence from prominent sources such as the World Health Organisation, the Department of Health and the American College of Sports Medicine, the KiActiv® HealthCheck analyses your data to show you the impact your physical activity is having on your future risk of lifestyle diseases.
Multidimensional Physical Activity
There are different ways to harness the protective properties of physical activity because it has multiple independent biologically-important dimensions. Focussing on one dimension alone creates a danger of developing a false picture of activity which may be detrimental to personal health outcomes.
The published research from our partners at University of Bath shows robust evidence that personalised multidimensional physical activity profiling is crucial to providing an accurate assessment of an individual’s physical activity and for providing precise tailored advice. It is also integral to influencing successful behaviour change through greater understanding and offering activity choices tailored to an individual’s needs.
Proven Engagement + Motivation
We employ proven behaviour change techniques in order to inspire and empower individuals on their journey to behaviour change
Our interactive visualisations were developed using iterative feedback from patients and practitioners and were shown to:
- Display complex information in an easy to understand format
- Enhance patients’ knowledge of their physical activity
- Inspire the confidence to change and self-manage
