Quantifying the mind-body connection for allied health
healthQb assesses and remotely monitors biopsychosocial health, and provides actionable, personalized and scientifically validated recommendations to allied health practitioners and their clients
What We Do
healthQb remotely monitors patients’ biopsychosocial health and empowers health providers, clinicians and practitioners (like your physiotherapist, your massage therapist and your osteopathic manual practitioner) who, armed with these objective assessments, guide you to your health goals. Our system works alongside your current routines, exercise regimens, diet, and mindset, identifying points of improvement, providing quantified assessments and quantifiable results.
Our system allows you and your health team to:
Evidence: Review tangible, quantitative assessments of your health and health trends following treatment.
Identify: Identify and pinpoint the multiple factors that are contributing towards your health conditions or preventing you from reaching your health goals.
Recommend: Receive personalized recommendations for additional treatment from your existing health team and from other biopsychosocial methods.
All from the comfort of your home.
