How Fitbit Became The Next Big Thing In Corporate Wellness

How Fitbit Became The Next Big Thing In Corporate Wellness | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Is the new requirement to climbing the corporate ladder that you count all the steps?

 

Most mornings, Brett Broviak rises at 4:30 for a walk around a nearby track before work. The winters in his native Indiana are long and cold, but Broviak trudges on. Occasionally, he steals a glance at his Fitbit to check his progress toward his daily goal: 20,000 steps, or about 10 miles.

It wasn’t always that way. In 2014, Broviak’s cholesterol and blood sugar levels were sky-high. After years of unhealthy habits, his weight had ballooned to 255 pounds. Like many Americans, he regularly indulged in fast food and drove almost everywhere, including to the Indiana University Health Center where he worked as a respiratory therapy manager. "I was borderline diabetic," he says. "I knew I had to make some changes."

Business card with built-in ECG is perfect for cardiologists | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Some people can make business cards that stand out and show off their skills. Take for example, that one engineer who created a card that lights up and that programmer who designed one that can play Tetris. But what if you're a medical professional, specifically a cardiologist? A company called MobilECG has created a business card that's directly connected to your field: it has a built-in ECG that actually works. According to its blog post, the device has sensors that measure "the real ECG signal between the users' hands," so long as their thumbs are touching the finger pads.
