Health app mWell levels up fitness and nutrition tracking with in-app feature ‘mWellness Score’
Health is indeed wealth. That is one thing we all knew but must have come to fully realize during this pandemic. Now more than ever, there is a growing need for things that will help us achieve our best state of health.
Now at the forefront of telemedicine nationwide, Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (PSE: MPI)’s mWell PH, a fully integrated health and wellness mobile app, has introduced another groundbreaking feature, a personal in-app health tracker called the mWellness Score.
The mWellness Score:
This breakthrough feature allows mWell users to generate daily mWellness Score that measures the amounts of exercise, light activity, sedentary behavior and sleep every day using data-driven methods without spending for extra gadgets or fitness wearables.
Scoring consistently above 80 indicates a healthy physical lifestyle and lowers the risk of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Users can join the Steps Challenge, increase their daily physical activity and move up the leaderboard. Ranking is based on daily average step count making fitness more exciting, interactive and an organic part of their lifestyle.
Actress and host Roxanne Montealegre, upon discovering the mWellness Score says, “Instead of staying seated when working from home, I can do simple stretches even in front of the laptop. I can also take regular breaks and play with my baby, walk around the garden or create fun dance videos! Taking these simple steps will definitely give me a good mWellness Score!”
Chaye Cabal-Revilla, Chief Finance & Sustainability Officer of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation lauded the app’s additional feature. She said, “mWell is here to provide easy and convenient ways to improve overall health. Through the mWellness Score, we can empower more people to reduce disease risk and live their best life.”
The mWellness Score was developed in partnership with an award-winning team of doctors and data scientists from Aktivolabs. Gourab Mukherjee, CEO & Co-Founder of Aktivolabs says, “We are committed to support mWell’s mission to transform healthcare delivery in the Philippines. Powered by Aktivolabs, the mWellness Score is a great start to this partnership! Now every Filipino using just a smartphone can make informed lifestyle choices daily to prevent chronic disease and live longer and healthier lives.”
Aside from the mWellness Score, mWell has also made available customized fitness and nutrition programs developed by Olympians and exercise physiologists as well as calorie-controlled recipes created by dietitians and nutritionists.
With the growth of mWell, MPIC Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan expressed confidence in MPIC group’s newest foray in digital healthcare, “mWell continues to respond to the needs of Filipinos in restoring their health guided by our partner-doctors and improving their overall wellness with help from fitness and nutrition experts.”
“The fully-integrated experience empowers mWell users to be in full control of their health and well-being with just a few clicks, in the comfort of their own home. mWell will be their partner in every stage of their wellness journey,” said MPIC President and CEO Joey Lim.
