We believe that a healthy population lays the foundations for happy, productive and connected societies. To reach this goal, we harness science to empower the population to live long and healthy lives and thereby reduce the growing burden of non-communicable chronic disease.
Anything is possible when highly motivated people who share similar beliefs apply themselves to solve serious global problems. We turned this belief into action when we created Aktivolabs to take on the challenge of improving population health.
At Aktivolabs, we are building digital behavioural modification tools using best practices and scientific methods to improve the health of people across cultures and countries.
Our flagship health app, Aktivo, is powered by a proprietary algorithm generating the Aktivo Score®, which is a digital biomarker for health and longevity.
We are focused on reaching corporations, insurers and individuals across cultures, languages and countries to empower all to live long healthy lives.
Join us in building fitter, healthier and happier societies.
