Redhill, UK; March 29, 2022: A survey of 2,000 consumers by Kinetic Wellbeing found that most people prefer to have their health measured at home (61%) rather than in a healthcare setting.
However, when asked about ideal blood sugar and blood oxygen levels, 43% do not know the answers. More worryingly, one third (35%) of us do not know the ideal body temperature.
1 in 4 people reported using their home medical device recommended by their GP, a growing trend since the epidemic.
How home health care concepts have changed in recent years, with 76% believing that home health monitoring is more important than epidemics. 68% are more likely to buy a home health care device now than they were a few years ago.
Dr. Katie Stephens, Resident GP of Kinetic Wellbeing, adds: “After working on both the NHS GP epidemic before and after, I can make sure appointments in person now take much longer and need to be reserved for patients. In situations that cannot be managed remotely. The good news is that it can be a good thing for people to be interested in owning their own health care home, and it doesn’t necessarily require a medical professional. By empowering people to actively monitor issues such as oxygen levels (especially during Covid-19 infections) or blood pressure, we can help identify problems before symptoms appear, leading to better outcomes for the individual and potentially on the NHS. May reduce stress. At the same time. “
82% admit to benefiting from access to more information about their reading. Top ways users understand their results now include user manual (65%), Google (44%), YouTube and other videos (33%), and social media (6%). To combat misinformation and ensure that everyone knows their numbers, Kinetic Wellbeing is creating a content and resource hub that gives users the ability to understand what their levels and results mean.
James Grover, director of Kinetic Wellbeing, comments: “It’s great to see people show genuine interest in their own health without relying on public health services. However, if the numbers don’t make sense, how can they do anything about their search? That’s why we’ve teamed up with top physicians to provide education and content to help people understand their reading. It will help close the UK knowledge gap and empower people to self-monitor their health. “
When asked why they are now more likely to buy a home health care device, the top answers were epidemics (59%) and existing health problems (22%). “The epidemic has undoubtedly made more people aware of the importance of monitoring their health at home, but it is important for everyone to know your number, whether they have an existing medical condition or feel fit and healthy,” Grover concluded.
