Bangalore, March 26, 2020: In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, HealthifyMe India’s leading AI-led health and fitness app has launched a slew of initiatives to help people improve their immunity and adopt a healthy lifestyle during the 21-day lockdown.
The company has launched Immunity Assessment Tests which can be taken by anyone free of cost. Those who score low on the test will also receive a free consultation by a trained coach.
HealthifyMe has also launched home workouts on its app and daily live workouts with coaches, along with trackers for sleep, smoking and handwashing, factors that are the bedrocks of long-term immunity. These offerings are available for all users under the “Immunity Tab” in the HealthifyMe App. Mentioned below are the details of each:
Free Immunity Assessment Test
In a bid to help users assess their immunity, HealthifyMe has launched an Immunity Assessment Test on its app. The test has been developed by a panel of experts consisting of leading doctors, nutritionists and trainers.
This quick assessment will categorize users’ immunity levels as good, average, or low based on their lifestyle such diet, fitness, and sleep habits and give specific suggestions on how to keep their immunity high. The first 10,000 people who are identified with low immunity will also get a free consultation call from a trained coach on making lifestyle changes to improve their immunity.
Along with immunity evaluation, people who take the test will also get specific inputs about ways in which they can enhance their immunity. Through this initiative, HealthifyMe aims to create awareness amongst people about adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Handwashing Tracker and other immunity building tools
Built keeping Covid-19 in mind, the hand wash/sanitize tracker will remind everyone to wash their hands every hour. The company has also launched a sleep tracker that will offer users insights about their sleeping patterns.
In the next 3 days, HealthifyMe is also set to launch a Smoking tracker, since smoking is a factor in lowering immunity. The smoking tracker will have a timer that will show how long has one been smoke-free, offering users a sense of achievement. All these will be available for free.
Due to the 21-day lockdown in India, people are strongly encouraged to stay at home and are therefore finding it hard to get any exercise. In view of this, HealthifyMe is hosting daily live fitness sessions by premium coaches (3-4 live sessions including workout, yoga, and fitness) within the HealthifyMe app. These are available to all users for free and can be joined by users of all levels.
All users (free and premium) will now also have access to a large set of AI-generated premium home workout videos for the duration of the lockdown. These workouts can be performed anytime with no or minimal equipment at home.
Relevant content and advice
HealthifyMe has trained its AI-coach Ria to answer complex questions based on immunity and viral infections. Ria will be accessible to all HealthifyMe’s free users.
The Immunity tab also contains a feed with all posts relevant to Immunity, Workouts at home and AMA sessions with doctors and mental wellness counsellors. All information is written and verified by certified doctors and trained nutritionists to ensure the information is accurate and useful.
Commenting on the new initiaitve, HealthifyMe CEO Tushar Vashisht said it takes 21 days to build a habit and HealthifyMe wants people to use the lockdown to build healthier habits and improve their immunity .
“We have launched the biggest ever upgrade to our app with several new features centered around eating balanced diets, exercising at home, sanitizing hands and sleeping better.
