Keep your wellness and health in check

Self-monitoring of your wellness and health can significantly improve your life. Research shows that many of us are unknowingly exhibiting symptoms of  depression and anxiety. Left unchecked, it could severely hurt quality of life and wellbeing. Now, you can keep track of your health and wellness by simply downloading the MyHealthKam APP and following a few simple steps, and it's free! 

We provide a free application to help you keep your mental and physical wellness in check.

 

myHealthKam uses the front video of your device to capture the subtle changes in light reflected from your face to extract information about your pulse. This happens while you are using your device as you normally would (watch videos, read emails, surf the web, text, etc.). Rest assured, your privacy is protected! no videos are recorded or sent from your device; not even temporarily.

Unlike other APPs that require you to purchase a costly wearable device and actively take frequent measurements, myHealthKam monitors your heart rate, stress, and anxiety during your existing screen time and without bothering you with additional action: no effort, no need to follow a recording procedure, no wearable. myHealthKam can help you measure and journal your heart rate and stress levels.. It also helps you monitor your level of anxiety using clinically validated tools.

myHealthkam is free to download and use and does not include advertisements of any kind. 

What can myHealthKam provide ?

 

1. Resting heart rate: A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. Generally, a lower heart rate at rest implies more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. The higher your heart rate, the more strain it places on your heart over time. A resting heart rate regularly above 100 beats per minute is called tachycardia, which can place you at an increased risk of heart disease.

2. Stress score:  Potentially more useful than pulse or blood pressure, myHealthKam makes heart rate variability accessible to everyone to measure their level of stress. myHealthKam includes a quick 30-sec test providing a stress score.  A score in the range of 10 to 20% is expected to be "normal", the higher your score the higher your stress level is. By reducing your stress level, you can reduce the likelihood of developing problems such as headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis, depression, and anxiety. 

 

3. Self-reported anxiety: Experiencing occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. Anxiety is what we feel when we are worried, tense, or afraid – particularly about things that are about to happen, or that we think could happen in the future. Anxiety is a natural human response when we feel that we are under threat. Harvard Health (2008) found that Anxiety was related to chronic illnesses such as GI issues and heart disease. The Mayo Clinic (2017) included other worsening symptoms such as headaches and migraines as well as sleep issues. Often having long-term anxiety can lead to depressive states. myHeathKam uses the clinically-validated PHQ-2 survey to screen for depression in a “first-step” approach.​ If your score is superior or equal top 3, it is positive and you should be further evaluated to determine whether you meet the criteria for a depressive disorder. 


With myHealthKam you can easily understand how your everyday activities are affecting your overall wellness. You can also understand how small changes in your daily activities can have a huge impact on your quality of life and mental being.  By adopting periodic sessions of yoga, meditation, exercise, and rest you can lower your resting heart rate, eliminate anxiety, and reduce your level of stress.
