Based on the HUNT database, PAI Health developed its proprietary algorithms to help the everyday user maintain the same level of physical activity that researchers found to contribute to a reduced risk of death from lifestyle diseases in study participants.
By analyzing a user’s heart rate, PAI Health’s proprietary, patented technology translates that data into a Personal Activity Intelligence score, or “PAI.” By monitoring his or her PAI score, a user can make positive activity level choices. Achieving the proper level of physical activity can extend longevity and reduce the risk of lifestyle diseases. The algorithm behind PAI was derived from the results of the HUNT studies conducted at The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, which have collected data concerning physical activity and health outcomes from over 45,000 participants over 25 years.
A 2016 analysis of the HUNT database by Wisløff et al. that retroactively applied the PAI algorithm to collected data provided groundbreaking insight that identified an optimal amount of physical activity needed to help protect against lifestyle-related diseases. Because this analysis looked at data retrospectively, the study was not randomized, blinded or controlled (which are all measures that help reduce bias when testing the effect of a particular intervention). The study found a correlation between levels of exercise and mortality. The analysis showed that individuals with a PAI-score ≥100 had for men a 17% (range 7-27%) and for women a 23% (range 4-38%) reduced risk of cardiovascular disease mortality compared to inactive groups. There was also a corresponding risk reduction for all-cause mortality of for men 13% (range 6-20%) and for women 17% (range 6-26%). Importantly, it was observed that ≥100 PAI score was associated with an average 4.7 (range 4.4-5.0) years of life gained compared with participants obtaining
Of course, exercise and/or physical activity can present health risks and may not be advisable for everyone.
PAI Health encourages users to elevate their heart rate and exercise at moderate to high intensity, which may not be appropriate for everyone. You should consult a medical professional before using the Services or beginning a new exercise program, particularly if you have, or suspect you may have, a medical condition that could limit your ability to exercise vigorously. If you have, or are at a high risk of any heart conditions, do not use the Services or engage in a new exercise program before discussing with your doctor. Do not use the Services before you consult a medical professional if you are experiencing a fever or other illness or if you have one or more known medical conditions such as, but not limited to, cancer, heart disease, epilepsy, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, other musculoskeletal disorders, reduced circulation, or bruise easily.
Do not exceed the amount or intensity level of exercise or the maximum heart rate recommended by your physician. The Services provided by PAI Health are based on historical and not real-time data, so the advice of your physician should take precedence over any recommendations provided through the Services. Contact your physician or other medical professional immediately if you experience chest pain or any other discomfort or medical emergency while exercising.
The Services may be integrated with heart rate tracking devices, which may pose a risk to individuals with certain health conditions. Consult your doctor before using any heart rate tracking devices if you have a heart condition, epilepsy, musculoskeletal disorders, or have been prescribed blood-pressure medication or medication that makes you sensitive to sunlight.
The Services do not provide medical advice, and are not intended to diagnose, treat, or prevent specific health conditions, diseases, or illnesses. If you experience any health concerns while using the Services, stop immediately and see a medical professional. If you experience a medical emergency, call your doctor or emergency services as soon as possible.
PAI Health is not responsible for any health problems you may experience during or following your participation in any activity or use of the PAI score. The PAI score is made available to you on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranty of any kind. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, PAI Health disclaims any and all implied warranties in respect of the PAI score, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for purpose.
