We truely believe if consumers feel energised, they’ll live a more active life, and we weave this belief into every part of each product we make.

R-U-Ontrak helps people achieve their unique health and activity goals that arise due to an injury or the desire to complete a challenge that is health or activity related. While R-U-Ontrak is evolving into a platform, initially it is a basic app that enables the user to set goals and track actions that contribute towards the achievement of their unique goals. Recognising that a person could have other roles, ie teacher, coach, parent, provider, etc, R-U-Ontrak will assist those people track others (with their permission) who may have an injury or a challenge.
R-U-Ontrak adopts a holistic approach which considers all actions important, whether they are tracked by devices or not, are medical or physical or not. R-U-Ontrak believes that it will be of greatest value if it is used by the person in consultation with local Providers, who have domain expertise, and potentially with a multi-disciplinary group of Providers. R-U-Ontrak will capture de-identified data from users, with their consent, after they have achieved their unique goal. R-U-Ontrak will endeavour to generate insights from the data that are helpful to the user and others who may have a similar goal and/or a similar reason for the goal. By building a platform that enables Providers to connect with users and Payers to provide information to users, R-U-Ontrak hopes to assist in making this process more effective for users, more efficient for Payers and more rewarding for highly skilled Providers.
Finally, R-U-Ontrak hopes to collect data from users all over the world and by combining these data, we hope to assist in improving local healthcare systems and aspects of local health, fitness and active industries, and we hope to contribute to increasing physical activity levels in local communities and eventually injury prevention approaches around the world.
Our Big goal is to help millions of people achieve their Big Goal every year!
