If health remains intangible, it is difficult to understand it. However, if you can measure it, you can work with it. With the explosion of health and fitness-related wearable devices and applications on the market, it has never been easier for people to get access to a variety of health- and fitness-related data. This is also a problem, as no one can handle such a multitude of data and make sense out of it without any support. Making sense out of a large amount of health and wellbeing data is exactly what the dacadoo Health Score does: it simplifies the health status of an individual into just one number – the Health Score, so that it can be universally understood. Fundamentally, the dacadoo Health Score is based on who you are (body), how you feel (mind), and how you live (lifestyle). The dacadoo Health Score is a scientifically calculated number from 1 (low) to 1,000 (high). It moves up or down in real-time, depending on how your body, emotional wellbeing or lifestyle data changes. Think of it as your own personal stock quote of your health and wellbeing in real-time, similar to a stock quote on a stock exchange. The dacadoo Health Score is based on over 200 million person-years of clinical data. It has been developed by dacadoo in collaboration with a professor and former long-term scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston.
