Want to help science cure chronic diseases? Tracking your health produces valuable data!
We need lots of genetic data to study. Luckily, its easy and cheap to have your own genome tested for common variants. Several Direct-to-Consumer companies will test the DNA in your saliva and provide the raw data. To start, we will be supporting data from 23andMe kits.
According to WHO, High blood pressure and excess body weight are leading causes of death.
Our project support weight measurements from FitBit Aria and Withings scales, and blood pressure measurements from the Withings blood pressure monitor. These devices log the data automatically, allowing you to spot changes over time.
Activity trackers count your footsteps, estimate calories burned, and track your sleep patterns. Even if you don't lose weight, regular exercise will extend your lifespan. So get moving! Using an activity tracker can help you stay motivated.
