Today I want to talk about wearables. Do you know that electronic smart gadgets can be incorporated into clothing, implanted under the skin or worn on the body as an accessory for the purpose of collecting and tracking your personal physiological data to improve your health and fitness? Such medical data collecting devices are perfect tools in the development and implementation of a medical care model that shifts its focus from diagnosis to prognosis.
Precision Medicine is an emerging field in the science of health and wellness. This Medicine is based on four principles:
The use of FitBits or similar devices is quite common now and wearables technology is exploding all over the world.
Let me introduce you to the Oura Ring. It is developed by a fairly new - only two years old - company from Finland.
I have been learning about the outmost importance of good sleep on our health for quite sometime now. Please check out one of the best books on this seemingly trivial subject. Here comes the wearable that allows me to quantify the quality of my nightly sleep and much more. Of course I got excited.
I ordered my Oura Ring - second generation, last December. Due to its enormous popularity it arrived with delay this August.
For almost two months I have been collecting and monitoring the data on my SLEEP - 7 characteristics; READINESS - 7 characteristics, ACTIVITY - 6 characteristics; yes, steps walked and TRENDS.
The ring is synched with my iPhone ( can be other cell phone models) via the Oura app and can independently collect and store info up to 5 days, if for whatever reason I am not near my phone. It emits very low EMF compare to other devices and operates in Airplane Mode, if chosen. There is so much more to learn and discuss about the Oura Ring.
Ask me any questions at your next session.
If you decide to buy it, you are welcome to use HIH code for $50 off its $300+ price, depending on the model.
I am happy to share, that my husband agreed to wear his cool Christmas present - Oura Ring. I pray, that his ring will arrive just in time.
Here's other products that I introduce on my page The Products We Love: Vibram Five Toes shoes - give my bunions - yep, I do have them on both feet more space and to prevent future misalignment and a simple pleasure Massage Glove.
I am also excited to share a fantastic podcast by Peter Attia MD, called The Drive. Thanks to Max, one among my young and savvy clients, I am now hooked to Peter's podcast, his style, cutting edge info on many subjects... Mainly, health, longevity, critical thinking and a few others.
