Virtual Wellness Screens
Our new virtual wellness screens utilise the latest health monitoring technology and allow our team of medical experts to monitor your health and wellbeing via a cloud portal. We offer a virtual wellness assessment that is available for just £125. The assessment utilises wearable technology to provide you with an in-depth view of your health over a 4-week period.
We also offer a virtual wellness subscription for £599, which provides you with medical support and monitoring of your wellbeing over a 12-month period, a new Oura Ring for you to keep and discounts on some of our other services.
Through our partnership with Oura, we’re able to track multiple data points through the Oura Ring whilst you sleep, showing a cohesive view of your physical and mental health all in one place. The Oura ring provides extensive data on the following four categories:
- General health & wellness
- Sleep quality & quantity
- Mental health-stress & anxiety
- Physical activity
Unlike many other health trackers, the Oura Ring can track your body temperature which can be a key determinate to underlying health conditions or the onset of an illness. Such is the accuracy of this data that the University of California, San Francisco is running a pioneering study with Oura users to identify patterns of onset, progression and recovery of the coronavirus.
What is tracked by the wellness screen?
We know that during your sleep, your body performs a huge number of vital sequences to prepare and repair yourself for the next day. If you don’t get enough sleep, this impacts not only your short term physical health and mental alertness, but it impacts your long term health and mental wellbeing.
At a very top level, the wellness screen tracks your heart rate, heart rate variability, temperature, sleep duration and quality, sleep cycles (REM and NREM), your daily activity and readiness for the next day. There are 41 individual data points that it tracks every single day.
That’s where our experts come in to analyse and explain what your data is telling you about your health and how you can use this data to get more out of your sleep and optimise both your physical and mental health.
Who should have a wellness screen?
The wellness screen is for anyone who wants to better understand their general health & wellness, and for those who wish to get expert advice on how to improve sleep, mental health, or physical activity.
From athletes and fitness enthusiasts looking to improve their training and fitness to those struggling with sleep disorders looking to track, diagnose and treat their condition. With the 12-month virtual subscription and discounted GP and dietitian services included in your screen, we will support you throughout this process.
The Oura Ring
The Oura Ring is an advanced technology that measures your body’s movement, pulse, and temperature all through a tiny ring that fits seamlessly into your daily life. The ring’s sensors include infrared LEDs, NTC temperature sensors, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope to capture your bodies measurements.
Why does sleep matter?
The impact of sleep on our health and wellbeing has become the foundation of a healthy life. We all know we should sleep between 7 – 9 hours a night, however, many adults are chronically sleep-deprived surviving on an average of 6 hours 19 minutes in the UK.
When we sleep our body can perform essential tasks that keep us healthy. With good sleep at the core of having good health, we are using Oura Rings to track physiological data whilst you sleep, showing a cohesive view of your health all in one place.
Evidence-based benefits of sleep include:
- Enhances memory recall
- Increases creativity
- Protects you from dementia
- Lowers the risk of cancer
- Improve immune system
- Lowers risk of heart attacks, stroke and diabetes
- Improves feelings of stress and anxiety
- Reduces risk of depression
- Reduces food cravings and help you maintain a healthy weight
Whereas, studies have shown the impact of chronic sleep deprivation affects the body in two ways:
Sleep loss affects the brain by increasing the risk of:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Bipolar disorder
- Chronic pain
Sleep loss affects the body by increasing the risk of:
- Heart attack
- Weight gain & obesity
- Immune deficiencies
With these sobering risks, it’s time all of us took our sleep more seriously.
