FITNESS PRESCRIPTION TECHNOLOGY

 

 

 

 

THE MISSING LINK

 

The use of intelligent Fitness Prescription Technology is the missing link in most health, fitness and wellbeing programs.

 

At the heart of the Fitness Prescription concept lies the use of the digital technology developed by our technology partner Fitness-Technology.

 

The aim of the system is to link

 

  diagnostic assessments

 

  fitness prescriptions

 

  health monitoring

 

  apps

 

  online logs

 

  resources ...

 

... to a digital platform accessible by individuals and their health professionals.

 

For the first time it will provide people and their health professionals with timely data about their health status and the progress being made to improve it.

 

The arrival of numerous digital monitoring devices linked by Bluetooth to mobile phones, ipads and computers - and stored in the cloud - has provided this opportunity.

TECHNOLOGY ADVICE AND ASSISTANCE

One snag that attends the use of the Fitness Prescription Technology system is educating people how to use it.

Getting the advice from a surgery might sound a bit far fetched, unless staff on the front desk are trained to handle this task. If this were to happen it would be an important medical breakthrough.

Ideally connected devices will be readily available from retail outlets. That being the case, the retail outlets are an obvious point of contact where people can buy new devices, particularly mobile phones with apps already installed on them - and get advice on how to download apps, get access to the data base and how to connect the devices to the cloud depot.

Or, the phones can come with the apps already on them.

There is more to selling a phone than selling a phone.

Another suggestion is to train students on how to teach people to connect their smart devices, phones and computers to the system. For $20 an hour people could get a smart Fitness Prescription Technician to show them how to do it.

For the Fitness Prescription to be successful there will be a need to elevate not only health literacy but digital literacy.
