Healthy technology

Love it or hate it, technology is all around us and more still, it’s helping to keep us fit and healthy. From wearable fitness trackers to apps designed to help you eat healthily, the possibilities to use technology to improve and maintain our health and wellbeing seem endless. We can use technology to help us manage long-term health conditions like certain lung disease and diabetes. And some technologies can even feedback important information to our healthcare professionals.

Healthy living plans and programmes

As well as apps and wearable tech, there are lots of plans and programmes available online to help you reach your healthy living goals. Check out our running programmes – whether it’s a distance of 5K or a marathon that you’re training for, they can help guide you every step of the way.

What we eat and drink plays an important part in maintaining our health and wellbeing. If it’s your diet that you want to focus on, take a look at our specialised plans. You can choose to focus on diet and nutrition when doing sport or exercising, looking after your heart health or how to eat for the seasons.

Tools and calculators

Using tools and calculators may help you to identify patterns in your health and wellbeing and areas for improvement. We have a range of different tools and calculators that you can use. Try our BMI calculator to see if you’re a healthy weight for your height or find out how much energy (calories) you could be burning off during daily activities with out calorie calculator.
