Kinetik Health Sense is loading

The Kinetik Health Sense System is a new way to track your key health measures and turn that information into a real understanding of what they mean for you.

There are significant health problems facing society today – high blood pressure, obesity, lack of physical activity, poor sleep - but it’s not always easy to understand what your measures are, what they mean and what we can do about them.

  • 62% of UK adults are classified as overweight or obese
  • One in four adults have high blood pressure
  • Eight in ten people (79%) are not doing the amount of average weekly exercise recommended by NHS guidelines.
  • Top three things most impacted if feel fat or unhealthy include mood and general happiness (57%), self-confidence (52%) and sex life (24%).

HOW IT WORKS

By connecting your free app with the Health Sense Kit devices, you have started on the first step towards managing and monitoring your key health statistics in a simple to use application and online portal.

Each time you take a measurement, the data is stored securely within your personal profile.

Your profile and your kit allows you set goals and share your achievements privately with your own personal network of supporters.

You can also use your profile to record the details of any medication you may be taking

Use your profile to set reminders and schedules for taking measurements, medication or important consultations.

How the Kinetik Health Sense Kit works

However before you make any significant lifestyle changes, we strongly recommend that you speak with your doctor who will have an in depth understanding of your health history and any medication you may be taking. They will be able to give you any personalised advice or recommendations about diet and activity levels for example.

WHICH DEVICE IS FOR ME?

Our electronic devices use the latest technology to assess and record your most important health measures. We believe it is important that you can use these easily at home, understand the results and decide what action to take to improve your own health.

In our kit you will find a unique selection of 3 connected devices:

Blood pressure monitor: Buy Now for £59.99.
High blood pressure is a recognised cause of a range of heart diseases including heart attacks and stroke.

Activity tracker: Buy Now for £24.99.
Lack of regular activity and poor sleep quality can both contribute to a range of heart diseases as well as some mental health problems. Our Activity Tracker can also record your sleep patterns

Digital scales: Buy Now for £34.99.
Weight gain is a significant factor in heart disease and diabetes.

Although we often think about blood pressure, weight, activity and sleep in isolation the possible consequences of them all are inter-related, so anyone who is not managing their total health will be significantly increasing their overall risk levels.

KINETIK HEALTH APP

The Kinetik Health App, powered by Caros, will give you a complete picture of your vital health measures and help you understand your progress, all in the one place for life.

Taking your measurements is easy and once done, your health statistics are uploaded via Bluetooth® to your personal, easy to read, dashboard where all of your data is backed up and stored securely. You can set yourself targets and track your progress by accessing your personal information via the internet anytime and on any device you choose.

This allows you to analyse and really understand what your measurements mean for your health, building a comprehensive picture over time so that you can decide if you want to make any lifestyle changes or seek medical advice.

Your data will help you in many ways:

  • Highlight variations in your blood pressure, allowing you to take action and see your GP prior to any serious event.
  • Understand your weight, allowing you to make choices about your diet or physical activity.
  • Help you understand how active or inactive you really are and decide if you want to make lifestyle changes to help improve your overall health.
  • Create a sleep diary to help you understand your sleep patterns.
  • Record your medication history to ensure you are taking medicines correctly and to remind you when any repeat prescriptions might be due.
  • Invite your family and friends to be your support network so that they can give you that extra encouragement when you need it most.
  • Share your data with your doctor or another healthcare professional.

CASE STUDY - JANE, 45

I have been thinking more about my health since my husband Dave was told he had high blood pressure last year.



I have always had low blood pressure, but I tend to have ‘funny turns’ from time to time where my blood pressure either soars or drops – so using the blood pressure monitor was a good way to monitor the changes throughout the day. It helped me see that my blood pressure changes were affected differently at certain points of the day or in certain circumstances you normally only get a snapshot every few weeks or even months during a check-up with the doctor.

The activity tracker also helped me get a good view of my sleep; I was able to realise how many hours of deep sleep I was getting a night and identified what woke me up and how my before-bed routine changed things for me.
It made me think that I needed to make a conscious effort to change my habits and get up to bed earlier in a bid to get more hours a night; it really made a difference!






Monitoring my steps throughout the day was a great reminder to move more too! I have mainly had office/desk-based jobs throughout my life where there isn’t much opportunity to get up and move around. My steps have increased from around 4,000/5,000 to about 8,000 a day – almost double! I hear that the recommended amount a day is 10,000 – so that’s my next aim.

The scales results are as to be expected, with increased sleep and increased activity spurred on by using the wrist watch combined with a change in foods and overall habits; it has of course affected my weight. I have lost ½ a stone in the last month or so.
It has become a bit of an overall lifestyle change by using the kit, it certainly makes me more aware of my day-to-day routines and activities, and in turn it is helping the whole family too!

WHO ARE CAROS?

The Caros Mission:

  • Help people to easily use health and lifestyle devices for happier, healthier, and more connected lives.
  • Use real world data to drive the development of new, innovative products and services.

At Caros we know, based on our own experiences, how getting older feels, so we've focused on helping people use technology to lead full, independent, active lives.

Caros has developed the KINETIK HEALTH app that connects the devices in the KINETIK HEALTH SENSE KIT, so that you can capture the readings easily. The app transmits the readings from the devices to your own web profile where your readings are stored and charted, you can then share the readings with your nearest and dearest quickly (we call it your Care Network). Please visit our website for more information: www.carosconnect.com

Who are Caros?

Caros are experts in developing healthcare management systems and have developed the Kinetik Health App. The devices alone are helpful but it is the addition of the Kinetik Health App that really brings together the data to help you. You can find out more about Caros in the next section.

ABOUT CAROS

What data does Caros collect?

When you create your profile, you input your name, address, email, date of birth, ethnicity, and gender. To use various Caros features (for example, in the medication reminder function) you have the option to include your medications, and any medical conditions you may be aware that you have.

To create the graphs in your on-line profile, we collect readings from devices you use with the Caros system. You can store readings from devices that you buy from us (integrated with our app), and you can input readings manually to your Caros profile, from devices that are not integrated with the Caros app.

Where do you store my data?

Caros is a UK company and complies with the data storage and management regulations for the UK and the EU. The data in your on-line profile is stored on servers in the UK and in Germany, complying with the EU’s data security policies.

Please note, the readings from your devices are temporarily stored on your smartphone, until they are uploaded to the on-line profile. You can choose whether to do this automatically, or manually.

Does Caros store my medical records?

No - we do not ask for, nor do we store any type of health records on the Caros systems. Any information you add to your profile is purely for your own use and may or may not be correct.

Is the Caros system a medical device?

No, Caros is not a medical device, nor is it certified to be one.
It must not be used to replace, or form, any part of a medical treatment regimen that has been suggested or prescribed by a healthcare professional.
The Caros system is designed only for people seeking to improve their quality of life through better insights. It is not suitable for people who require monitoring by a healthcare professional.

Does Caros make recommendations about what I should do with my health?

No, Caros does not suggest any actions you should take to improve your health. Caros presents your readings back to you as a graph. The readings are not analysed or altered in any way. We only store and present the readings from your devices, and do no analysis, nor do we recommend any action as a result of the readings.
If you have any concerns about your health as a result of the readings, please consult your GP.

How long will Caros hold my data?

If you decide to leave Caros, we will delete all your sensitive personal information such as name, date of birth, address, age, ethnicity, and any financial information (e.g. credit card information you may have stored with us for payments, etc.) within 90 days of you cancelling your membership.

What information is shared with my Supporters?

Once you add a Supporter to your Care Network they will see all the readings and information in your profile. For this reason please be very careful about who you add to this group.
The system is designed to have only very close personal contacts supporting you (e.g. family, close friends, etc.). It is very different from the way in which social networks function, and we have designed it to be a way of facilitating lifestyle change with those people with whom you may wish to share lifestyle-related information.

How do I set-up my profile?

Please visit the Caros website for an extensive set of guides on how to use the various features of the Caros system, with videos to get you started.
