I posted about the Bupa advent calendar in December. I’d now like to show you the Bupa find healthy section of their website. The find healthy section of their website gives you access to FREE Bupa apps and a whole lot of other Bupa content including a diabetes risk assessment, heart health assessment and a health age calculator.
Bupa find healthy hosts an extensive selection of services covering many aspects of life, giving you advice for exercise programmes and providing fitness regimes that help to improve fitness levels – and, as a result, your health.
Using the health age app I have worked out that my health age is three years older than my actual age and that I could get it down by twelve years if I follow the on screen tips.
Using the calorie app I have worked out that at my current weight if I was to go on a 30 minute bike ride doing less than ten miles per hour I would only burn off 154.55 calories, the equivalent of one or two biscuits or a large apple. I am told that this is a good start but that I need to do more.
You do have to register to use some of the apps, but if you are genuinely trying to improve your health the content that you have access to is very much worth it and does only take about one minute..
I registered to open up the access to the Diabetes test, both of my parents and my grandfather have/had diabetes and it does play on my mind quite a bit. Both the site and the app were easy to navigate. It took less than five minutes for me to fill in the information and receive my results. I did find the results chart quite difficult to read in this app, the graph isn’t the most clear. This aside it still gives you a good idea of what you need to do to lower the chances of getting Diabetes.
There is also a health finder app available to download onto your smart phone so that you have access while out and about.
Have you tried the Bupa apps? Which did you find most useful? What is your health age?
