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."

A Pill That Monitors Your Vital Signs | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
Vital signs are key indicators of health. But tracking some of these signals, such as the body’s core temperature, can require invasive tactics—which is especially problematic for active or injured patients. Almost anyone, however, can swallow a pill.

Apple Watch Saves Man's Life

Apple Watch Saves Man's Life | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
A couple of people are giving the Apple Watch credit for saving their lives.

 

According to British tabloid The Sun a man’s life has been saved by his Apple Watch. The paper reports that Dennis Anselmo, a 62-year-old builder, felt “terrible” after taking lunch. Anselmo had a rest, and during that time looked at his Apple AAPL -1.14% Watch, checking his pulse. He discovered that it was well over twice what it should be, registering 210 beats per minute.

Anselmo then called for an ambulance, and at hospital was later told that had he gone home he may well have died. Instead the doctors were able to clear his arterial blockage and he’s now doing well. And Anselmo isn’t the first person to claim that their Apple Watch has saved their life either.
