dacadoo has developed an easy-to-use, wireless, secure and fun way to manage your personal health & fitness from a lifestyle, wellness and chronic disease perspective called the dacadoo health platform.

The platform calculates your personal dacadoo Health Score, a number from 1 (poor) to 1’000 (excellent). It is a directional relative indicator of your current health and fitness status in real-time. By integrating gaming and social networking principles, dacadoo motivates you to be active in an easy way by automatically tracking and comparing your personal health, fitness and lifestyle.

The dacadoo health platform enables the tracking of over 100 fitness activities (outdoor and indoor sports) either over the mobile dacadoo tracker app or via manual entry. The dacadoo energy models are based on MET (metabolic equivalent of Task)* which measures the intensity of a physical activity. *Compendium of Physical Activity, Stanford University
