The new global health standard for physical activity

Experts agree that physical activity is the best medicine for improving cardiovascular health which has a wide-reaching impact on the entire body.

The question is how can you help people stay motivated? And how do people know if they are doing enough exercise to improve their health? The answer is through the science of PAI.

Building health resiliency while reducing the cost of chronic disease

2.5x

increased risk of mortality from COVID-19 for individuals with high blood pressure.

4x

increased risk of mortality from COVID-19 for individuals with heart conditions.

Inactivity is putting people at greater risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and hypertension — as well as more recently, viruses such as COVID-19.

Reduce costs, improve efficacy and deliver real health outcomes

The PAI Health app guides people on the heart health benefits of activity through a personalized program that is both motivational and impactful.

PAI Health also provides organizations with science-backed, structured data analytics and reporting that provide meaningful insights.

The most relevant index for measuring if you are physically active enough is PAI, from a health perspective that's all that really matters. Managing your PAI Score helps you reduce your risk of lifestyle-related diseases. Simply, it helps you live longer."

5 years longer life

Published studies confirm the efficacy of PAI for tracking and optimizing heart health.

In fact, achieving a weekly PAI score of 100 or more is associated with 4 to 5 years longer life when compared to those who are physically inactive.

PAI Health are collaborating with the American Heart Association to have physical activity assessed as a vital sign and to advocate for policy change.

How PAI works

Personal profile

PAI works with popular wearable devices to customize to your profile factoring in sex, age, and resting/maximum heart rate.

PAI Score

The proprietary algorithm calculates a PAI Score using personal profile data and heart rate data on a rolling 7-day basis.

Results

Maintaining a weekly PAI Score of 100 or more is associated with an average 25% risk reduction in cardiovascular disease mortality.

"PAI is the best example yet of how wearables can turn data about our bodies into tailored, actionable advice—and hopefully longer lives."
