KAM: Kinetic Activity Monitor




      


There are three general lifestyle areas that can influence your health:
activity level, diet and stress.



KAM: Kinetic Activity Monitor



Sustained, positive changes in any of these will play a major role in how good you feel and your risks for becoming ill. As you get stronger and healthier, your stressors will affect you less. The KPHP has been designed to give you all of the guidance and monitoring you will need to be successful in changing your lifestyle. BIH will be offering you a time tested nutritional approach (with your own needs and preferences incorporated), readily accessible professional/ patient community online support and an innovative new technology that monitors your activity level with a small, portable device that clips onto your belt or clothing waistline.

  

The Kinetic Activity Monitor (KAM) is unlike anything ever available before. You will be your own inspiration as you are able to realistically monitor all the increments in your physical activity, and therefore be encouraged to do more. The KAM measures the quality of your movements and you have full access to the readings.

Your practitioner will conduct an intake to have a starting point about your present lifestyle and health status. There will be 20 risk factors charted on a regular basis. A blood sample may be necessary. Your healthcare provider will work with you to devise the appropriate nutritional approaches over time. You may be offered specialized supplementation or dietary measures that will enhance results with your increased activity level.

If you are becoming enthused-you are already in the right state of mind for success!

Here's to your health and well-being!



How does the KAM Measure Activity?
The KAM measures the duration of an individual's movement, speed and intensity. It's more than just a pedometer. It will then display KAM points achieved, calories burned and levels of activity daily. Your KAM points are based off your own personal basal metabolic rate. This information will be uploaded  at www.myFLTtools.com.

What is a KAM Point?
The KAM Point is a unit of measurement for activity, just like a mile is a unit of measure for distance. Increased movement at a higher intensity for longer duration will yield more KAM Points. It is the only metric of activity that directly measures and combines all three parameters of movement: duration, frequency and intensity into one single digit. The KAM Point is unique because it is directly correlated to oxygen utilization and energy expenditure.

Every KAM Point earned represents a 1% increase in energy expenditure over and above an individual's Basal Metabolic Rate. For example, if you have 30 KAM Points you have increased your active energy expenditure by 30% over your Basal Metabolic Rate. Studies have also shown that there is a relationship between percent increase in your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and weight loss. Intuitively, this makes sense. If you increase your activity level or total energy expenditure relative to your BMR, you will burn fat and lose weight.



Below are the health effects for the respective ranges for KAM points per day: 





Q-Score



What is the Qscore?
Queue (noun): a line, usually of people, assembled in order and waiting for some event or service. 

The Qscore represents where you are in a line of 100 people of a matched population who need to see the doctor. The Qscore will rate your health status and give you a specific readout as to where you stand. An individual with a low Qscore will need medical attention before and individual with a high Qscore. Your Optimum Q represents where you could be in that same line if you make lifestyle changes to contribute to increased health.
