Stop inactivity now.


Despite medical evidence showing that 30 minutes a day of physical activity at moderate or vigorous intensity can bring substantial health benefits to the adult population, physical inactivity is becoming a serious and increasing public health problem in most western societies (Blair, 2009)*. This inactivity is often the result of poor motivation and support towards a more active lifestyle. Wellness facilities can play an important part in addressing peoples needs; helping them become more active by developing stronger individual and social awareness and commitment, through provision of expert coaching to support outdoor and indoor activities, by setting sustainable goals and by encouraging behavioural change to achieve long term results.

Motivate people to be more active.


Motivating people to move more and adopt a Wellness lifestyle is a social responsibility as well as an important business opportunity. This idea has inspired the mywellness key, a device that measures both the quantity and intensity of movement using the Move index. This index is associated with vertical body acceleration and acceleration is correlated to energy expenditure, thus the Move is related to energy expenditure, but is independent from body weight. Users are assigned a personalised Move goal and every movement they perform during the day is translated into Move points. As they progress towards their goal, the white bar fills up until it reaches the + sign, which signifies the goal has been reached.

The mywellness key helps encourage people to move more and more often:

it improves awareness of personal lifestyle it provides a daily goal to move more it promotes sharing and participation, through ranking and competition it allows the trainer to provide advice and suggestions It plays an important role in weight loss, active aging, stress relief, general wellness and diabetes management programmes.

How it works.
Set a personalised goal and track physical activity
The mywellness key tracks every movement that is performed in the gym and in every day life. Users are assigned a personalised activity goal based on personal parameters and lifestyle. The goal can be assigned automatically or customised. All users need to do is register and wear the key every day.

Measure the level and intensity of physical activity


The mywellness key measures the energy used to be physically active, the intensity of the movement and the relative metabolic activity: the higher the intensity of the movement, the higher the Move score and the relative calorie expenditure. This information is shown on the mywellness portal, as well as all activities carried out at the gym, outdoors and manually added ones.

Review progress, motivate and share.


When your clients connect to the mywellness portal to download their results, you get the full picture of their progress throughout the day and the week. This can help you to review their training programme, to motivate them with specific advice based on their performances or with competitions and ranking activities both inside the gym and on the web.
