POWERbreathe K5 on the table in BBC TV Programme

‘Bang Goes the Theory’ is a BBC TV programme that investigates the science behind the headlines, and on Monday 22nd April Jem Stansfield tested out the very latest in self-monitoring gadgets as he investigated the world of self-tracking. On the table was our very own POWERbreathe K5.

The latest episode looked at the new technologies that are at our disposal for testing, diagnosing and treating ourselves at home – a veritable “revolution in healthcare, because medicine is getting personal”.

Presenter Jem Stansfield had expert help from Dr. Jack Kreindler, Medical Director and High Altitude Medicine Specialist, to assess the benefits of self-monitoring and the very latest range of gadgets that take self-monitoring to new levels, including the POWERbreathe K5.

Dr. Kreindler said “We have a huge opportunity with this incredible technology becoming ever more powerful, smaller, accurate and useful to the profession that we can transform the way we practice medicine by collecting the data, understanding it and acting earlier, making better decisions before we get ill.” Dr. Kreindler is a health and human performance consultant, and founder and Managing Director of the Centre for Health and Human Performance in Harley Street.

With an array of self-monitoring devices on the table, including the POWERbreathe K5, Jem Stansfield proclaimed that “you could almost put a roof over this table, and that’s a hospital.”

If you missed it, you can see the programme again until 6th May on BBC iPlayer.
