GetFit Wellness And Wellness Technology Partnership
October 29th 2007
GetFit Wellness Ltd (GW), a leading provider of web-based wellness and healthy living solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with Wellness Technology Ltd (WT) a leader in population health assessment and health promotion programmes.
The deal means that GW’s award winning exercise and nutrition services will be seamlessly integrated with WT’s health assessment solutions offering highly personalised physical activity and nutrition programmes to individuals that need to be more active, lose weight and improve long-term health.
Mike Owen, Director at Wellness Technology said:
“By including GetFit Wellness’ services within our health assessment platform it means that we can now not only identify a person’s health risks but also provide them with highly tailored behaviour change programmes to reduce them. We chose GetFit Wellness because their solutions are so personalised and comprehensive with powerful management reporting capabilities to demonstrate participation, behaviour change and health outcomes.”
The Department of Health predicts that 31% of the population will be obese by 2010 and work-related stress is costing the economy £3.7bn per year, according to the Health and Safety Executive, so health promotion and behaviour change programmes that can identify and support individuals to manage their weight, heart health and diet can play a vital role in arresting these trends.
Steve Russell, Co-CEO at GetFit Wellness commented:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Wellness Technology in order to help large populations of people identify, adopt and sustain a healthier way of life. Exercise and nutrition are two of the most important determinants of health and we have invested heavily to provide programmes that are attainable, personal and follow best practice.”
The combined services will be available to WT’s customers by December 2007.
