Joni Kettunen Firstbeat
The presentation will focus in the process of transforming wearable data into health benefits using physiological analytics. It is generally acknowledged that the raw data provided by wearables needs to be processed to make it meaningful and actionable. The presentation will stress that analytics is required for wearables to have actual health and fitness effects. We will share our experience on how heartbeat analytics in particular has been used to deliver behavioral change for healthier lives. Examples and reasoning will be provided for fitness and physical activity, sleep and stress. Application areas will range from preventive health care and corporate wellness to consumer wearables and professional sports. Finally, we will explore results of interventions using wearable data to provoke behavioral changes for better health.
