The more you move, the greater the health benefits
Activity Benefit tracks all your active choices during the day and shows how they can help you to stay healthy on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.
Understand the positive effects of your activities
With Activity Benefit you can better understand your activity and how it can affect you, through motivating feedback. Activity Benefit gives you short and long-term feedback on how your activity has improved your health and fitness and if you have spent too many hours sitting down per day. It can also help to change your behaviour and guide you to a healthier direction.
Get insights into how to be more active
Exercise is only one form of physical activity. Even if you are active and you’re fulfilling or exceeding global physical activity recommendations, it is still possible to sit for too long. Activity Benefit gives you the facts, so that you can change your habits for better health.
Activity Benefit is based on scientifically proven interactions between physical activity and health, as well as sedentary behaviour and health. Moreover, the feedback is based on international guidelines, as well as research on the health effects of physical activity and sitting behaviour.
How Activity Benefit works
Activity Benefit is based on the amount of time spent within the different activity intensity zones including sitting time and interruptions when sitting. The idea is that the more active you are, then the more benefits you will receive.
