Elfie – Blood Pressure & Pills
Elfie – Blood Pressure & Pills
You need a blood pressure monitoring device to use Elfie.
Smartphones and mobile applications cannot measure blood pressure without the use of an external device (upper-arm).
While the Elfie is the best app to help you manage your blood pressure and medication, you must have a BP monitor to measure your blood pressure at home.
*WHY ELFIE EXISTS*
High blood pressure is the #1 cause of death, claiming 9.8 million lives every year. It cannot be cured, only treated. Because you cannot feel your blood pressure, people mistakenly think they are cured, pause their treatment, stop measuring their vitals.
Together, we can change that.
*HOW ELFIE WORKS?*
Step 1. Complete your health profile the first time you launch the Elfie app. This will create a plan tailored to you that evolves as your health improves.
Step 2. When you follow your plan (measuring your blood pressure, taking your pills, walking/exercise, tracking your weight…), you will earn Elfie coins
Step 3. With all those coins you can claim amazing prizes, make donations to local charities or get discounts with cool brands!
