What does achieving 10,000 steps per day mean for your overall health? Furthermore, is there scientific evidence that links any health outcome to achieving 10,000 steps per day? The answer is no.
At ShowStoppers, Mio Global is showcasing Mio SLICETM, the first heart rate activity tracker to feature PAITM (Personal Activity IntelligenceTM), and the PAI app. PAI is the answer to the question: How much physical activity does one need to stay healthy? Until now, “one-size-fits-all” metrics such as step-counting have been ineffective goals because not all steps are created equal and not all activities involve steps. PAI translates heart rate and personal data into one easy-to-understand number (PAI score) that gives users a personalized prescription for exercise through one universal goal: keep your weekly PAI score at or above 100. PAI’s scoring algorithm has not only been scientifically proven to reduce the risk of premature cardiovascular disease and death, but also proves that keeping your PAI score at 100 or above is more effective than following today’s exercise guidelines.
How each person earns PAI points depends on his or her body’s response to activity, and users earn points faster with higher intensity activities. In addition to tracking all-day heart rate and total and daily PAI scores, SLICE delivers smartphone notifications, tracks sleep, calories burned, distance and more with a simple one-button operation.
