Right from the start, boys suffer more illness, more accidents and die earlier than their female counterparts. Men take their own lives at four times the rate of women (that’s five men a day, on average). Accidents, cancer and heart disease all account for the majority of male deaths.
As part of men’s health week ManageHealth has launched it’s Men’s Health Check App PromptMate; that has been fully rebuilt from the ground up with the support of the NSW Government via a minimal viable product (MVP) grant from Jobs for NSW.
The App will be like a tap on the shoulder for men to touch base with their GP or specialist health care provider on a regular basis to maintain a healthy balance of life.
This simple app will alert and prompt men to have their annual “grease and oil” change health checkups with their GP, dentists, dietitian or get their hearing, eyes, fitness or other tests as needed.
It also has education and a checklist of the specific tests men should have for their age range and will include regular lifestyle tips to help them stay on track with their physical and mental health.
Men being men, some of us need to be reminded to get health checks done as sometimes we think we are ten foot tall and bullet proof- Until something goes wrong.
Regular health checks can pick up medical conditions early, saving our medical system costs and possible making a difference between life and death.
PromptMate’s mission is to ensure all men over the age of 18 have annual lifestyle checkups.
