About Aseptika Limited (Activ8rlives)
Our strategy is to develop expert information systems which can be used by laypeople and shared with their healthcare service providers, to better self-manage long-term conditions through self-monitoring. Activ8rlives integrates simple monitoring devices that capture an individual’s various health parameters. This information is brought together in the Company’s servers so that it can be viewed to warn of impending ill health and to support them in maintaining wellbeing. This also means that this information is available anywhere and at any time. A natural extension is development of a home-based test predicting flare-ups in chest infections in those who have long-term respiratory conditions, to reduce hospital admissions and improve healthcare.
The Company offers a range of health monitors, from step counters through to smart scales, smartphone Food Diary App to peak flow meters and pulse oximeters. The online communities combine empowerment through self-monitoring with the added dynamic of group support and motivation. Groups can be led by laypeople, family, carers or healthcare workers to improve wellbeing and maintain health.
Users can track: physical activity, body composition and weight, lung function and cardiovascular health, blood glucose, HbA1c, cholesterol, c-reactive protein, International Normalized Ratio (INR), medication and bacterial infection markers. Custom trackers such as dress size, training sessions, pool laps per session, runs per week, sleep duration, allergy reactions, mood, fertility, temperature - in fact anything that can be measured - can be created. Activ8rlives is free to use and there are no joining or subscription fees.
