The IC tomorrow "Quantified Self Innovation Contest" rewards entrepreneurs for exploring and encouraging innovation around health and wellbeing. This year, AXA PPP Healthcare supports the "Emotional Wellbeing in Working Age" category, one of five different categories explored as part of the competition (Re-imagining data capture: Bupa / Improved wellbeing in later life: Saga / Quantified nutrition: Jamie Oliver / Self-tracking for young people: Toshiba).
This category features the development of new health tech that can help people manage their own emotional and mental wellbeing in the workplace. The category winner will be automatically shortlisted for the Problem/Solution Award at the upcoming AXA PPP Health Tech & You Awards 2016, which aims to recognize and celebrate entrepreneurs, organizations and innovators that are changing healthcare. The deadline for applications is October 27the.
Maintaining the emotional health and wellbeing of our working population is one of the biggest challenges facing our society today. The health technology revolution provides the chance to make a big difference. As a result, we are delighted to be able to support Innovate UK's Quantified Self contest that will encourage a new generation of technology developers to bring healthcare into the hands of the user to help maintain and improve their own and their families' health in the workplace.
