  • In recent research a brisk 25-minute walk every day can add up to SEVEN YEARS to your life and cut risk of dying from a heart attack by half.   • Regular exercise can reduce the risk of dying from a heart attack by half; • Study finds just 25 minutes of brisk walking a day can add 7 years to life; and • Scientists say people who don't exercise until age of 70 can improve health.   Taking a brisk 25-minute walk a day can add seven years to your life, scientists claim. New research has found that regular exercise can reduce the risk of dying from a heart attack by half.   Even people who do not start exercising until they are in their 70s can still improve their health, the academics behind the study say. Taking a brisk 25-minute walk a day can add seven years to your life, scientists claim Sanjay Sharma, professor of cardiac diseases at St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in London, said gentle exercise can reduce the risk of dying from a heart attack in the average person's 50s and 60s by half.   'This study is very relevant. It suggests that when people exercise regularly they may be able to retard the process of ageing,' he said. 'We may never avoid becoming completely old, but we may delay the time we become old. We may look younger when we're 70 and may live into our 90s. 'Exercise buys you three to seven additional years of life. It is an anti-depressant, it improves cognitive function and there is now evidence that it may retard the onset of dementia.   To read more follow this link to The Telegraph's write up of the research.
  • Activ8rlives’ 3.0 Health and Wellness Monitor and Food Diary App is now available on the NHS Choices Health Apps Library, having been reviewed and passed for inclusion by the clinical assurance team, which is made up of doctors, nurses and safety specialists. The aim of the NHS Choices Health App Library is to provide a list of reviewed Apps that are safe to use, making it easier to find Apps that consumers can trust, improving patient and professional confidence, and enabling healthcare workers to be able to prescribe and recommend them to their patients. In the latest version of the NHS Choices Health App Library, the new Health Apps Library Review Process ensures that Apps are relevant to people living in England, contains information from a verifiable or trusted source, comply with the Data Protection Act, ensure that they hold and use personal information appropriately, and above all make sure they are clinically safe and will not bring harm to the user. The National Information Board (NIB) aim to set regulation, accreditation and kite marking of technology and data enabled services later this year. Inclusion of the Activ8rlives App in NHS Choices is a key step in giving healthcare professionals the confidence to recommend and prescribe Apps for use by their patients and is an important milestone for the Company as it develops integrated medical solutions for self-management of long-term conditions.   Caption: Activ8rlives 3.0 Health and Wellness Monitor and Food Diary App passed the Health Apps Library Review Process to be listed under Manage your Health on the NHS Choices Health App Library.      
  • With summer already here, keeping active will be easy and fun with the NEW version of the Activ8rlives Buddy Step Counter. Our most popular accelerometer has had a revamp of its styling and extended battery life. The Buddy Step Counter is a simple electronic wearable device, which measures your activity and energy expenditure throughout the day. Available via the Activ8rlives webstore or from Amazon at £24.99. The Activ8rlives Buddy Step Counter does a lot more than just count your steps—it helps you understand how your activity changes throughout the week. It measures your activity and calculates your energy expenditure in calories, the distance you have walked or run and the total active time during each day. Besides the sleeker and thinner form of the new Buddy Step Counter, the main change is the inclusion of a rechargeable battery, lasting up to 3 months of normal usage. It can be recharged in an hour by attaching it to the micro USB cable included to a PC/Mac – means no more fiddly changing of the battery. The Activ8rlives Buddy Step Counter features include: Accurately counts your steps using a 3–axis accelerometer Slim, lightweight and elegant form Easy to wear on a neck lanyard or optional Arm/Ankle strap Large easy to read digital display with a 24-hour clock 3-month battery life with a rechargeable lithium battery Measures distance, total active time and energy expenditure in calories Uploads all your data with mini USB cable provided to PC (Windows or OSX) OptionalSports Package is available that includes an Arm/Ankle strap View data with FREE Activ8rlives Health Monitoring & Food Diary App (iOS/Android)(HealthKit) Work in groups for added motivation No subscription fees - FREE account for life!

As with all our products, Activ8rlives provides 7-day-a-week support in setting-up devices and is conveniently based in the UK. We pride ourselves on our Customer Service and our 4.8/5.0 rating for customer support and service via Amazon. Sandra, a long-time user of Activ8rlives, commented on her experience of the Buddy Step Counter: “I’ve had one of these step counters for almost 2 years and find it brilliant. I had previously used a normal pedometer and kept a record of steps done every day but with this one uploads the step count to the computer and so all the information is kept. The step counter also shows how many calories have been used and how many miles/kms walked. On the website you can join a forum/group and so encourage each other to achieve the targets, normally 10k steps per day.” Similar comments have been expressed by other Activ8rlives users: "Loving it, it really fits with what I want to do, lose some weight, get fitter and this is an all-in-one package. I'm enjoying the features and keeping track of things using the online tool too. I think this that is very good value for money." "I am delighted with the device which is very accurate but much simpler to use than other pedometers I have tried. The technical support in setting up was excellent and I received outstanding service when I subsequently contacted the sellers. I am about to buy my third Buddy step counter as they make very good presents. Thoroughly recommended!" "This is an excellent gadget for spurring you on to move more!! Easy to use and set up, compatible with computer to keep a data log of progress. Highly recommend." "Fantastic service. I received an email prior to delivery offering assistance in setting up, etc. product is exactly as described and seller is outstanding." - Ends –         Caption: The newly launched Activ8rlives Buddy Step Counters – sleeker, thinner, lighter and longer lasting battery life.  
  •   Aseptika today announced that they have been short-listed as one of twenty semi-finalists for the Cisco British Innovation Gateway (BIG) Awards, selected from over 150 entries from across the UK. The Cisco BIG Awards recognize industries experts based on their potential for accelerating marketable solutions centered on the Internet of Everything (IoE).   The competition is run in three phases, for which Aseptika has reached the second hurdle. Cisco is looking for ideas around the Internet of Things (IoT) and IoE specifically in the areas of application enablement, security and real time analytics, solving the challenges in sectors such as health.   Aseptika is a healthcare company developing and marketing an integrated suite of self-monitoring devices and services under the Activ8rlives brand, which can be used by consumers and their healthcare service providers to better self-manage long-term health conditions (LTHC) through self-monitoring. The Company is presently working on two Generation #3 products with their vision having been formed through years of experience of working with both consumers and the NHS in healthcare.      Caption: Cisco semi-finalists for the British Innovation Gateway (BIG) awards.      
  • Lung disease affects one in five people in the UK, causing around 1 million hospital admissions a year and is the third main cause of death in the UK.  Surprised to hear these statistics? There is low public awareness of the extent of respiratory disease and the voice of people with lung conditions is not being heard. Aseptika has developed the SENSOR II App for iPads to help them track and manage their lung disease at home and better communicate with their healthcare workers when they need help. The SENSOR II App for iPads was developed to support those with long-term respiratory conditions (LTRC) or anyone who wants to record and track a range of cardiovascular and pulmonary health parameters and self-manage their health at home. The early awareness of signs of lung disease, such as shortness of breath, or persistent cough, are often left untreated. There is a growing consensus that the combination of earlier intervention and better self-management or self-care at home, reduces the number and severity of hospital admissions and increases quality of life of millions of us by slowing the rate at which the disease progresses.   The SENSOR suite of Apps was designed and trialled in our recent clinical trial funded by NHS England, supported by the highly acclaimed Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare programme. The SENSOR II App was designed for use by people of any age, but is especially inclusive for older patients. The colourful user interface, the step-by-step instructions and motivational messages enable the user to collect 41 vital signs, measurements and questions about their daily health, all in less than 10 minutes a day. The response of volunteers (average age 67) on our recent clinical trial has been highly positive. The SENSOR II App allows those individuals using it as part of their individual self-care plan or volunteer patients enrolled on clinical trials, to see and learn from their longitudinal data, which is displayed as graphs and bar charts overlaying a traffic light-like system, to identify and flag-up “out-of-normal” parameters. The daily record of their vital parameters enable them to watch for signs of declining health associated with their respiratory disease. The users also record when they have started a course of antibiotics or steroids as part of their ongoing self-care plant at home. Vitally, the patient can share their data with the entire network of healthcare workers they are supported by, each of whom may work in different parts of the healthcare service. Other patient self-help groups are also starting to take an interest. Elizabeth Waldock (aged 75) has COPD and runs a charity called “Hunts Breathe for Life” for others in Huntingdonshire who have respiratory diseases and represents a new breed of informed, proactive and activated patients. Waldock commented: “Whilst we are all aware of the fact that our condition is currently incurable, it is good to know that the technology is available and is capable of improving quality of life. Forewarned is forearmed to promptly treat exacerbations. I also think that we are in a situation where we have to start helping ourselves. Our health service is struggling and the financial pressure under which it operates is unlikely to improve in the immediate future. As things stand at present the patient has little or no say in their treatment. In my opinion, technology not only has the potential to give the patient a level of self-empowerment, but ultimately to be of benefit to both the patient and the health service.” Kevin Auton Ph.D, Managing Director of Aseptika commented: “Since the publication of the universally welcomed “Five Year, Forward View” blueprint for the NHS, with its focus on patient empowerment, prevention and the use of technology to enable and manage the growing demands on our health services, we have seen almost an overnight increase in interest in our platform. The realisation is growing that now is the time to harness technology to work smarter rather than just harder, to help support the health and wellbeing of our population. The SENSOR App suite are tools which can be used to facilitate a new partnership between the empowered patient and their clinical teams and compliments the new Activ8rlives v3.0 App, which shares many of the same features as SENSOR I and II but which was designed for use by the consumer.” SENSOR I and II Apps and the Activ8rlives 3.0 App are free to download and use. There is no charge to securely and confidentially store data. The decision to share data with clinical teams remains at the discretion of the patient and is under their control at all times.   Caption: The newly launched SENSOR II App for respiratory research and self-management of respiratory disease available from the Apple Store for iPads (iPad 3 or above, iPad Mini 2 or above, iPad Air 2 or above running iOS 7.1 or above).
