How Technology Can Help You Live a Healthier Life

How Technology Can Help You Live a Healthier Life | Bodywork | Scoop.it
Mashable interviews FitBit CEO James Park about how digital devices can help us live healthier lives.

 

Courtesy of Mashable, a CES snapshot of current and future directions in personal health, aka quantified self, aka self-monitoring, as seen by FitBit's CEO.

 

FitBit, iHealth, and Withings all now make a digital scale that can upload weights and bodyfat % to the Internet and social media sites -- a very powerful motivating tool -- and FitBit, BodyMedia, and Nike now make personal devices to track activity and exertion with similar uploading capacity.

 

The deciding factor for the winner(s) in this space may be the utility of the smartphone or web interface, the reliability of the product (Jawbone stumbled here), or the basic slickness of the marketing campaign (Nike).

 

Any way this plays out, we as consumers should benefit.

High numbers on high blood pressure

High numbers on high blood pressure | Bodywork | Scoop.it
High blood pressure is huge in America. Analysts at HHS’ Agency for Heathcare Research and Quality, or AHRQ, reviewed the latest available numbers.

 

Or as a specialist colleague put it, 50% of 50 year-olds, 60% of 60 y.o.s, and 70% of 70 y.o.s will have high BP. Great betting odds :(

New biochip measures glucose levels in saliva

New biochip measures glucose levels in saliva | Bodywork | Scoop.it
Engineers at Brown say the chip can also detect other substances in tandem, including anthrax. Read this blog post by Elizabeth Armstrong Moore on Crave.

 

Nanotechnology may make glucose monitoring as easy as spit.

 

This kind of tech will make bodywork more customizable to your individual situation. You think that a measly 6 hrs of sleep is jacking up your cortisol levels -- and that 15 minutes of breathing meditation will neutralize that? *Test it and see for yourself* -- and adjust your own variables (nutrition, sleep, movement, supplementation, recovery) accordingly.

 

If you can sequence your own genome for $4k, how far away is measuring your own stress hormones, cholesterol numbers, and inflammatory markers? Glucose is just the start.
