The current situation is not as glamorous and user friendly as you would expect with our physical and health data management, there is a high reliance upon user proactivity and device syncing. If you have tried to use Apple Health without any connected devices you know it can be a less than intuitive experience.
For that reason, Mywellness, an app (yes, another one) powered by Technogym that helps you reorganize and measure your physical activity data synchronized with your gym performance. How is that done? By gathering data directly from your activity using the gyms equipment such as connected bicycles, treadmills, and weightlifting machines? First, users take a medical examination with the trainer at the gym and baseline vital signs are uploaded to the cloud. Users are allowed to modify them with further measurements. Then, users follow a workout plan using gym equipment that tracks their progress towards personal goals. To provide a bigger picture of individual health, Mywellness also includes other health data collected on a user’s phone.
Here at LUCA we are eager to see how this trend develops so we can make data application and analysis to health and fitness more efficient. As more companies become interested in analysing their employee health, equipment like VI are likely to increase in importance. This is definitely a trend that is worth watching because one day our salary may well be connected to how well we perform and take care of ourselves physically.
