The following service is offered by Engineering Ingegneria Informatica SpA, FBK e TU Eindhoven through an application for mobile phones (smartphones) as part of the achievement and testing of one of the results of the DMCoach+ initiative, co-funded by EIT Digital. The availability of the service and the terms and conditions set out below will be renegotiated after December 31, 2019 and is valid only for the purposes of testing the mapping.
The DMCoach+ mApp, and therefore the information and suggestions it proposes, are designed to reduce the insurgence risk of chronical diseases, such as type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, caused by unhealthy behaviours, and aimed at people without pathologies that could prevent physical activities.
The use of the application is possible after the recommendation of a doctor who will verify the patient’s requirements in the adoption of the same.
The advice provided by the DMCoach+ application is based on the national diabetes guidelines and is tailored to teach the users how to improve their lifestyles. Nevertheless, they do not constitute any sort of medical advice.
Such advice and educational information provided automatically by the mApp, including those relating to the physical state, physical activity, prevention of disease exacerbation, health, personal hygiene, and nutrition are presented for indicative and general purposes only. Under no circumstances can they be intended as and substitutes for, advice from any trusted healthcare professional.
The DMCoach+ application can be used to monitor and track diet, physical activity, daily weight, waist circumference, pressure, blood sugar and patient smoking habits.
In any case, because for us it is not possible to check:
- the veracity of physical, anthropometric and attitudinal information, which is collected by the application, by users;
- the intensity with which users perform the physical activities that may be proposed;
- the adequacy of environments, foods, tools and other supports possibly used by users;
No responsibility is assumed for any trauma, injury, pathology, damage, accident or other negative event, possibly reported by persons who decide to put into practice what is proposed by the DMCoach+ application, or by any third party involved.
The user hereby waives any claims for compensation or indemnity towards the application and the subjects connected to it, as described above. DMCoach+, therefore, can not be held responsible for any damage, direct or indirect, that may result from the use, either proper or improper, of the information or advice presented in the application.
Anyone who uses material, indications and advice taken from the DMCoach+ application assumes all responsibility for any damage, of any nature, that may be caused to themselves or to third parties. The use of the application, for any reason and for any purpose permitted by law, requires the prior reading, understanding and acceptance of the above.
