Fitsurance has been awarded a Mkb-innovatiestimulering Regio en Topsectoren (MIT) subsidy. This subsidy enables Fitsurance to do a feasibility study on the further development of their mobile application.
The feasibility study investigates the development of the Fitsurance app, a mobile application (iOS and Android) that is part of the Fitsurance platform. The goal of Fitsurance is to improve health and well-being of employees. The app must improve health through automated health data analysis and personalized feedback. This project is in line with the objectives of the top sector ‘High-tech Systems & Materials and ICT’.
Sauvik Das Gupta: “With the subsidy we can test the feasibility of being able to upgrade our mobile applications to give automated and personalized health related feedback to the clients. This would be done by sending the correct nudges and push-notifications on an individual level to the clients by using Machine Learning and Big Data techniques”.
Fitsurance focuses on sustainable employability, increasing work productivity and general well-being of employees. They aim to reduce sick-leaves and absenteeism among the workforce of any employer. This implies a radical shift from the current thinking of a curative way of healthcare system towards a more preventive approach. They want to fundamentally change the way people think about their health. Fitsurance is based in Demonstrator Lab. Read more about Fitsurance.
