WalkSmart for Primary Care
Help patients manage chronic conditions
You, as a physician, know that your patient would be much healthier if they were to exercise more and live a more active lifestyle. Besides the obvious benefits for managing heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic conditions, it has a substantial effect on mental health as well. You can tell your patients to walk more, but how do you know if they are doing enough to stay healthy? With WalkSmart, every time your patients visits you know how much they've been walking on average. You'll be able to see if they've increased their activity, or if they've slowed down. And you'll be able to show your patient these trends, so they understand that walking health is a vital part of their overall health.
Walking Health = Quality of Life
This truth is simple but important: better everyday functionality results in better overall quality of life. As someone who wants the best for their patients, are you doing all you can to help them maintain their functionality? It's very difficult to manage something that is not being measured! WalkSmart provides a way to "gauge" quality of life as a function of walking behavior. Encourage them to get a WalkSmart, and help them help themselves!
