Mio Licenses its Proprietary PAI Technology to the Lenovo Brand of Wearables

Lenovo fitness tracking devices will integrate PAI (Personal Activity Intelligence), the groundbreaking activity metric, helping people manage their health and reduce the risk of lifestyle-related diseases

VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/22/17 -- Mio Global, a health technology company, today announces its partnership with Lenovo -- a leader in innovative consumer, commercial, and enterprise technology. The new Lenovo HW01 Plus fitness bands are the first of many devices that will feature Mio's science-based health metric that translates heart rate data into a simple, meaningful score that guides users on how much activity they need to live a longer, healthier life.

The Personal Activity Intelligence experience utilizes heart rate because it is the single most accurate reflection of the body's response to physical activity, which means it also provides the most accurate picture of how daily and weekly activities can contribute to overall health. The PAI algorithm translates heart rate and personal data into a simple score that gives users a personalized prescription for exercise through one universal goal: keep your weekly PAI score at or above 100 for maximum health benefits. Since this goal is based on personal profile data, it adapts to a people's fitness levels as they improve.

An article published in The American Journal of Medicine states that PAI has a huge potential to motivate people to become and stay physically active by informing them about how much exercise is required to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by 25 percent, and also significantly reduce the risk of other lifestyle diseases. PAI research has been conducted using the HUNT study data, one of the largest health studies ever conducted. It has been scientifically proven that those who maintained a PAI score at or above 100 lived on average of 5 years longer than those who were inactive.

"We are excited to integrate PAI into the experiences and platforms of many other brands to positively impact global health by making wearables more meaningful," said Peter Taylor, CEO of Mio Global. "Lenovo is a major brand in the consumer technology space, so we're thrilled that PAI was the chosen metric to help grow their business because of its wide appeal across a wide variety of consumers of lifestyles and fitness levels."
