About dacadoo

The dacadoo mobile health engagement solution enables individuals to track, manage and benchmark their health and wellbeing in an easy and fun way on their smartphones. dacadoo calculates 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 body values, emotional wellbeing and activities (exercise, nutrition, stress and sleep) change. To help individuals remain engaged, motivation techniques from behavioral science and online games, social and collaborative features from social networks, and personalized feedback are applied. The award-winning company is working with strategic partners from the various key industry segments to bring this solution to the global mobile health market. dacadoo has its headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.
