This experiment was designed exclusively for M-Health Congress. How measurement of vital indicators can improve productivity and lifestyle, based on data and measurements of heart rate variability (HRV).
We decided not just to talk about the possibilities of digital medicine and how data analysis helps to improve well-being and change the lifestyle. We decided to show it in practice.
During one and a half months, our volunteer and Welltory user Svetlana Fominykh will measure energy and stress level every day, using an application and a small cardiac monitor clip. In addition, she will add data on her sleep, work pattern, physical activity, etc. to Welltory.
By analyzing this information, we will be able to provide her with personalized recommendations. Let's see what results can be achieved by measuring health indicators of the user during this period. Every 2 weeks we will write about experimental procedure, collected data, and efficiency of recommendations.
Person during HRV measuring:
The first stage is diagnostics. We will collect necessary information, tell you how we got it, and what it can tell about our volunteer, her physical well-being and way of life.
What results does Svetlana aim for?
1. Increase productivity, concentration of attention and reduce procrastination.
2. Make regular exercises a habit.
3. Increase the level of daily energy.
To achieve it with the help of data analyzing, necessary programs and gadgets is possible. But how? Let's watch together how it works!
Few words about our volunteer: Svetlana Fominykh - the Head and public speaking coach at the Speaking School ‘A Person of the Word’, the manager of TED Novosibirsk project, and founder of ‘Personal Stories’ project.
What is Welltory?
The service allows you to measure energy and stress level indicators using a smartphone camera. It is also possible to use more highly sensitive cardiac monitors, chest straps or Welltory cardiac monitor, made in the form of an ear clip.
The indicators of stress and energy are calculated using the methods of heart rate variability, showing the state of the autonomic nervous system, balance of tension and recovery.
In addition to health indicators, Welltory allows you to combine data from various fitness bracelets, gadgets and programs, including all applications that support GoogleFit, to display information on how user sleeps, moves, eats and works on the computer, on a single dashboard that shows the relationship between these lifestyle factors and the parameters of stress and energy.
Using personal data, it will help to understand easily what kind of physical activity can help to cope with stress, how much hours of sleep is necessary for recovering, how the time spent in social networks influences fatigue, and even how weather changes affect user’s well-being.
