Letter From The Editor

Our good friend and Advisory Board member, Andrew Young, is one of the fittest type 1 patients I have ever met.

Tool for your Practice

 

Google seems to be moving into the medical sphere lately and Google Fit is one of their first forays. If your patients are keen to try the latest tech, Google Fit has gotten good reviews so far. Users can track all of their activity registered by the device on their phone or tablet, bringing them closer to reaching their fitness goals. They can also adjust their goals based on either duration or steps, and receive performance-based recommendations for activity goals, and get a comprehensive review which they can then share with you. Google Fit is compatible with all Android Wear devices and you can be fairly certain sure there will be more of those coming soon.
