dacadoo offers a comprehensive health engagement and lifestyle navigation solution that enables individuals to track, manage and benchmark their health and well-being in an easy and fun way. Applying the principle of what you can measure you can manage, dacadoo visualizes the current health and well-being of an individual with a personal Health Score, a scientifically calculated number from 1 (low) to 1,000 (high). The score works as an indicator and moves up or down in real-time, depending on how the body values, emotional wellbeing, and activities (exercise, nutrition, stress and sleep) change.

As more and more consumers want to access the dacadoo service from their mobile smartphones, dacadoo has worked intensively on offering more and more features from its award-winning website, also on the dacadoo mobile app for both Android smartphones and the iPhone. In parallel, it has completely redesigned its user interface of the app, so that the additional services can be integrated and accommodated in an attractive and natural way, fully aligned and embedded within the design guidelines of each native operating system (Android, iOS).

Peter Ohnemus, founder and CEO of dacadoo states: “dacadoo has gradually shifted from a ‘website first’ towards a ‘mobile first’ development strategy and is happy that most features available on the website today, will now be accessible on the mobile apps for the iPhone and for Android smartphones. Also, we will soon offer our complete website in fully responsive design, which means that a user can access it from a smartphone, tablet or desktop always in the optimal way.”

dacadoo recently also launched a completely redesigned website – www.dacadoo.com - explaining the value of Health Score and its dacadoo Health Engagement solution much better to consumers, to employees for corporate health promotion activities and to other business partners.

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.
