Study shows PAI Health app keeps employees active and engaged during COVID-19, reducing average Fitness Age by 5 years over 16 weeks
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PAI Health today announced the results of a global corporate study that spanned 5 regions, included 491 participants and ran the course of the initial peak COVID-19 pandemic from March to June 2020. PAI Health partnered with Gen Re, a global reinsurer, inviting their employees to join a 16-week study where participants used the PAI Health app with wearable devices. Quantitative and qualitative analysis was conducted to assess many factors, including PAI’s efficacy at motivating people to become more active or stay active and for whom PAI works best. The full white paper can be accessed on the PAI Health website.
The study found:
These findings suggest that PAI can support healthy behaviour change and mortality risk reduction for cohorts that are at the highest risk of CVD mortality, including the least it and older populations. The PAI Score has been associated with significant mortality risk reduction for healthy individuals as well as those with chronic health conditions, such as hypertension, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Published studies show that on average, people who maintain a PAI Score of 100 or more can experience a 25% decrease in CVD mortality risk, and even greater risk reduction amongst cohorts with chronic conditions.
“The results of this study are very exciting as it further validates PAI’s value in helping to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems, which is inactive lifestyles,” says Sally Powell, General Manager, PAI Health. “CVD is the number one cause of death worldwide, and COVID-19 has brought new challenges for the health and wellness industry. We are confident that our solution can drive meaningful health outcomes by giving people a tool that provides personalized guidance and motivation to stay active by doing any type of activity, anywhere.”
PAI Health’s proprietary metric PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence) provides actionable insight on how much activity is needed for each individual to improve or maintain good CRF and maximize their heart health protection. PAI Health leverages its expertise in biometric sensing and algorithm development to offer science-backed data insights for the health and wellness industry, including insurers, healthcare providers, wellness programs and wearable technology companies. The company’s suite of tools includes a mobile app, an administrative reporting dashboard, and an application programming interface (API) for easy integration into third party apps.
The PAI algorithms were derived from one of the world’s most extensive health studies involving 45,000 people over 25 years, with further validation across broader populations of over 730,000 people, with over a million person-years of data.
