I truly hope that very soon I do not have to make an appointment at the GP when I suspect signs of a disease, but my GP will send me a message that she spotted something irregular in my latest test results and my digital health data, so I’d better visit. Let me show you in detail, how primary care should be carried out in the future!

I had a serious injury in 2016 which completely destroyed my workout rhythm and ruptured my dreams about being able to achieve the training level of an astronaut – in case I’d need to. After I could start my recovery, I turned to Fitbit Surge to help me shape up again. Here is how.
