I find patients today are more savvy about their health than in the past. They are already using phone apps and fitness bands so Styku has helped me provide a sophisticated tool for them to visualize their health risks, as well as providing them with fitness and health goals. It makes my job of health counseling much easier since a picture is worth a thousand words. Being able to see their body shape, whether as an avatar or profile, and then track positive changes over time helps me motivate and encourage patients, even when the scale doesn't drop as much as they hope. A major obstacle in medicine is keeping the patient engaged and connected with their health care provider. Styku helps me accomplish that.
