Kilo Health: In the Future the Doctor Will Call Us Before It Aches
With Kasparas Aleknavicius, Kilo Health’s Head of Medical Affairs, we talked about the future of HealthTech and the most promising segment of this new market – helping people with chronic illnesses.
Vilnius, Lithuania, Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the future, it’s going to be the opposite of what is now – we won’t call a doctor after something starts to ache, but before it. If there are any issues with our bodies, sensors and software will alert us in advance, says Kilo Health’s Head of Medical Affairs Kasparas Aleknavicius.
He says that the digitalisation of wellness and health products has exploded in recent years. Moreover, the technologies to come are even more exciting.
Health tracker sales in recent years are booming, and far outperform smartwatches. Why are more and more people buying these devices and monitoring their vital signs?
You mentioned that the surging usage of trackers and accompanying apps usually has something to do with general health and wellness or a chronic illness. Do you have any data on what are the most common reasons, and what are people aiming for?
What categories of health apps would you single out and which, in your opinion, have the brightest future?
When and how did this health tracking trend start? Did the Apple Watch have anything to do with it?
The growing health tracking trend could have a huge impact on society in general. Kilo Health is a big player with a broad view of the market. Can you see the change happening?
Scientists keep alluding to the negative consequences of long and frequent phone use. And there are all kinds of digital detox initiatives starting to appear. Do you think this could affect the app's usage and the digital health market as a whole?
I very much like one of Elon Musk's thoughts, who, by the way, is usually switching off at the weekend. When someone asked him: “When will we become cyborgs?”, he answered, “We're already cyborgs”. Hee sees phones as our digital extensions, which help us express thoughts, communicate, translate language, accumulate and monitor our vital signs, etc. Even pacemakers have apps these days. Just swapping data between the device and the brain today is still slow. My point is, we can use these digital extensions to shape healthy habits or unhealthy addictions. So, we should be mindful of our choices. And let us not forget that certain actions also affect those around us. There is the term "technoference" (technology and interference). For example, when children see parents constantly immersed in their phones, they often lack attention and psychological problems might arise.
