Activity tracker

From walking the dog to moving around the house – it all counts. If you keep your mobile in your pocket the Medopad app will create a picture of your general activity based on your step-count. Information about how many steps you take and your general activity over time gives your care team extra insight into your health, which can be used to inform your care.

Your smartphone will record your daily steps if you carry it with you. You will be prompted to allow Medopad access to display your steps data.

Walk test

This test will measure the distance you are able to walk without stopping for 6 minutes. Simple on-screen instructions will guide you through the test. It’s important that you carry the phone with the screen on so it’s easier to check the timer and to ensure the distance is correctly measured. After the 6-minute walk there is a 3-minute rest, after this the results are saved. For best results try to use the same walking route for every test.

Weight

Body weight is influenced by diet, hydration, and lifestyle. Tracking your weight over time using Medopad can help you and your care team form a better picture of your overall health and what affects it. For people with certain conditions or taking specific medications, monitoring weight is an important part of planning care.
