Manage your health better with Digital tools

Here at Digital Health Coach we believe that digital tools can help you manage your health in a number of ways:

Digital devices like modern bathroom scales, thermometers, oximeters, and blood pressure monitors, alongside Apps or websites, can;

  1. Help you understand what your readings mean,

  2. Advise you if and when to seek help,

  3. Remind you of your last readings,

  4. and even plot them on a graph for you.​​

All of this can help you learn how your lifestyle and behaviours affect your body, and your health.

SmartPhone Apps, websites and online services can support you through changing habits, learning new behaviours and in the really challenging life-style changes needed to improve your health.

  1. Body weight, lifestyle and diet
