This mobile app has been a labor of love and we are proud to finally share it with the world!
The mobile app is a crucial part of our connected health platform. It allows users to track their health data, connect with their care team, and access information and resources on the go. It will even help people take control of their health, see the impact their lifestyle has on them and improve their outcomes like never before.
Improved integrations with Garmin and Withings. We can now support all the advanced metrics from these devices.
New integration with Strava to track Relative Effort (aka Suffer Score)
New list view for the dashboard metrics
Automatic dark/light mode based on the iOS settings
Improved messaging experience for users who are connected to their healthcare professionals
The latest version 5 of the app isn’t perfect yet, but the upgraded foundation has been engineered and implemented.
Right now, we still have some features to add in such as the photo food journal, messaging, fasting timer, and a couple integrations that are coming soon. If you use these features, don’t worry, they are still available on desktop and mobile browsers. (We will be adding these features in the next release.)
We have received wonderful feedback from early users and are looking forward to continuing improvement on the app based. If you have any suggestions, comments, or questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and let us know.
The iOS app has come a long way and we are truly grateful for your support!
A big shout out and thank you to our developers for making this dream come true.
If your clients’ are using the mobile iOS 4 app, please send them a message to let them know they can upgrade!
One of our leading performance sports coaches Dr. Kevin Sprouse, from Podium Sports, requested we build an integration with Strava; one of the world’s most popular and leading running and cycling apps.
Strava has many powerful features but the one Dr. Sprouse wanted was the infamous Relative Effort variable.
What is Strava’s Relative Effort?
Relative Effort measures how much cardiovascular work went into any activity that has heart rate data or Perceived Exertion
Why is it a powerful variable to measure?
A short and hard workout can require just as much effort as a long and leisurely one. Relative Effort makes it so you can compare the two!
Going even farther, different activity types are weighted so that your efforts can be compared across sports, and your values are personalized to your own heart rate zones. Now giving you the ability to compare with other athletes.
If your clients both ran their hardest 10K effort, their Relative Efforts would be similar even if their finishing times are different. Similarly, if one client rode a bike as hard as they could for the same amount of time, their Relative Effort would be comparable.
Bringing this data point gives you a comparable variable to assess one of the most important factors in sports performance, effort.
With Heads Up Professional, you can now import your clients Relative Effort variable from Strava to see how much effort they are putting in their training.
No more slackers or excuses!
With Heads Up, you can compare your athletes relative effort with their oura HRV and readiness, sleep metrics from oura, Garmin, Withings, Apple Health and dozens of more wearables and health apps.
Giving you context on performance like never before!
Example: Our VP of wearables Chuck Hazzard uses Strava’s Relative Effort & Oura’s AM Readiness to see his effort and recovery scores, helping him tune his training for peak performance.
Chuck typically only runs one long run 18+ miles on weekends, but you can see the one exception to that where he ran a tough mountain run on Saturday followed by a half marathon at race pace (good to run on tired legs from time to time).
If you have Heads Up ‘Signals’, seeing your team cohort analysis is even more helpful. The signals feature will allow you to run effort challenges, see your teams performance variables stacked against each other.
Create effort leaderboards. Identify team trends. Incentivize growth.
If you can’t improve what you don’t measure, isn’t it time to measure team effort?
On top of all this amazing technology, Heads Up Signals further unlocks the ability to create your own health and performance algorithms to run with your teams and clients.
The Strava integration is just one piece of the performance puzzle. Heads Up helps you put all the pieces together to unlock peak performance, health, and longevity.
Don’t just work harder, work smarter.
Get the cutting edge technology to unlock performance insights that help your athletes become champions.
It’s a premium full spectrum hormone test that performs better than saliva, serum, and 24 hour urine testing for a number of reasons.
Precision Analytical’s DUTCH testing methods go through a rigorous validation process to verify accuracy, recovery, and linearity and are one of the most accurate & precise techniques available for testing.
Patients collect just four or five dried urine samples over a 24-hour period. Dried samples are stable for several weeks making them convenient to ship worldwide.
DUTCH testing was designed to be optimally effective for most forms of hormone replacement therapy.
The best part, Heads Up supports DUTCH lab tests as part of the pdf import capability.
So you can import the results and map them into Heads Up like a flash of lightning!
You can start using this new feature by going here.

[If you have custom labs we don’t automatically parse, contact us, and let us know which ones you want custom coded. After we code them in, you will be able to parse all your patient’s PDF lab data automatically! Note: Custom pdf lab coding is a small one time fee.]
Instead of parsing through fragmented digital health data across multiple systems, now you can digitize your patient’s lab data quickly and easily so you can focus on helping them achieve greater results with their health.
Heads Up is the central connected health hub that helps you answer questions like…
Has John’s weight loss protocol reduced LDL cholesterol?
Has Betsy’s inflammation been reduced from the new protocol that works with fasting, cold plunge, meditation, and improved sleep?
Simply taking the new digitized PDF lab imports and analyzing them in the reports section of Heads Up will help you answer these questions quickly, without having to waste time cobbling together separate labs, notes, spreadsheets, algorithms, or messy insecure systems.
As you can see, Heads Up does the technical work for you with easy-to-see proof of changed health.
All while continuously adding more functionality and features to help you be as effective as possible helping others with their health.
