It's all about you - dacadoo
A Real Time Health Tracker dacadoo App dacadoo is the name of the award winning health platform from Switzerland. The idea for dacadoo came from Peter Ohnemus who was concerned with the fact that there was no way of tracking people’s health in real time and seeing the growing rates of obesity all around the world. Ohnemus thought that the answer was an interactive and fun way to track and improve our wellbeing. Together with a team of specialists, Ohnemus set about to create a platform that accurately depicts the user’s state of health.

dacadoo offers an own tracker application called the “dacadoo Tracker” to automatically track all activities without manual entry on the system. It is available for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry in the respective stores. dacadoo also allows to use other fitness tracking devices and can connect to external biosensor devices, such as weight scales, blood pressure cuffs or heart rate bands.
dacadoo health platform is a secure health platform which inspires you to live a healthier life. The platform calculates your personal dacadoo health score (1 – 1000), the indicator of your current health status. By integrating gamification and social networking principles, dacadoo motivates you to be active in a fun and easy way by tracking and comparing your personal health, lifestyle and sport.
The dacadoo health score is not a diagnostic tool that substitutes the diagnosis of a medical professional. However, an individual with a dacadoo health score of 600 is likely to be doing better, from a health and fitness perspective, than someone with a score of 300.
Awards & Nominations – Launched in December 2011, dacadoo has racked up numerous awards and nominations, including winning the Health Media Award 2012 in Koln, taking bronze in Zurich for the “Best of Swiss Web Awards 2012″ in the category “Technology”, and being nominated as a finalist for the Swiss App Awards 2012 and 2013.
The founder of dacadoo, Peter Ohnemus had the initial idea on a ski trip in Switzerland. He realized that nowadays we can measure everything – except good health. Driven by this he strove to develop a model to understand the health in real time. That was how the dacadoo health score was born.
Gamification principles with level systems, achievements and rewards, fitness leagues and challenges have been incorporated in the platform as well as group dynamics through an own social network.
