In the UK, someone dies of conditions related to heart disease every 3 minutes. 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime and every 4 minutes someone dies as a result of the disease.
Yet, most of us will go through life thinking that it won’t happen to us. Most of us will chose to make poor health decisions with a firm belief that we will avoid the frightening fate that can lie ahead of us.
Many of us lure ourselves into a false sense of security by ignoring the odd health niggle, change or ache and dismissing a variety of ailments as a simple part of life. The reality is that there are a number of key health indicators that rely on medical devices or professional reading which only further fuels or preferred state of denial.
Although Elephant Kiosks primarily allow efficiency within the health service, they also present an opportunity for individuals to take a more proactive approach to their health and wellbeing.
Our health kiosks allow individuals to perform basic self health checks, using a number of medical devices and interactive information that ensures individuals can measure, understand and interpret blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, heart rate and more.
Taking readings of these simple physical health indicators can help us really understand our current and our future physical health and wellbeing. You may think that understanding our health may not prevent the conditions or circumstances that await us in the future but understanding our own position in terms of physical health can help us make informed, proactive decisions; understand any risks or changes and ultimately reduce the chance of severe illness, disease and death.
