Georges Janssens (Amsterdam UMC): MyHeBu (My Health Buddy), a wearable device-based and AI-powered digital twin to track your health and aging.
Many people are tracking all of their health data using wearable devices, but it’s not really giving them answers to simple questions like: ‘How often should I exercise?’, or ‘Is my high protein diet helping or actually hurting me?’. My Health Buddy has been developed to show people their biological age, by using wearable device data as movement patterns, heart rate variability, resting heart rate and gender. My Health Buddy reduces complex data to one easy score, aiming to empower people to personalize their lifestyles for keeping people’s biological age younger than their normal age, to live a long and healthy life.
