by Rochelle C. Pangilinan

If you frequent social networking sites, for sure you’ve encountered the term FOMO, which means Fear of Missing Out. For example, if someone posts an invite to a pop-up Hot Topic store on Instagram or Facebook, you certainly don’t want to be the one left out among your friends.

A FOMO attitude is something you can try applying not just for social activities but for your health news as well. Read on and keep yourself updated on these health technology trends. Don’t miss out!

Fitness Trackers

Fitness trackers have been extremely popular among adults—your health-conscious aunt or uncle might even own more than one tracker. These devices utilize technology-based solutions such as GPS to track your movement and other fitness musts like your heart rate, sleep, calories burned, and others.

Now, it is starting to become popular among kids as well, encouraging them to get moving! Luckily for you kids, there are tons of choices for you to wear these devices without you looking like a character out of those sci-fi movies. Some manufacturers have come up with kid-super friendly designs like Minnie Mouse and Captain America, while some have chosen a more sophisticated route with the trackers resembling smart watches.


If you love grocery shopping with your mom and dad, you’re probably the type who picks up anything to their liking like fruity-flavoured cereals and then when you try to put the item on the cart, your parents say no. Well, just remember they are looking out for your health.

Fooducate is a great app to have on your phone since it can help you and your parents make healthy food purchases. All you have to do is scan the barcode on any food item and you can see all its nutritional details (or the lack of them). It even gives a health rating which range from A to D so you can certainly decide instantly whether it is healthy for you or not before you even attempt to put it on the cart. Your parents will surely be proud.

Electromagnetic Frequency (EMF) Protection Devices

With our lives now completely surrounded by technology, as a result, we are constantly being exposed to artificial electromagnetic fields or EMFs (we get our share of natural EMFs from the sun itself). Scientific studies have suggested that frequent and constant exposure to certain devices such as microwave ovens, cellphones, or any WiFi devices can potentially cause health issues such as stress, headaches, moodiness, and sleeplessness.

Seeing that there is a need to combat the harmful effects of EMFs in our households, several technology companies now including Aires Tech offers a full range of devices that minimizes the effects of EMFs. You can get one for your household devices like WiFi TV and desktop computers and for your mobile devices.

Lumos Bicycle Helmet

This tech trend is more for your safety than health but it’s a must to have especially if you’re one who loves to bike even when the sun has gone down (and remember in winter, the sun goes down by 4pm so it’s always good to practice safety).

This bike helmet does not only come with built-in lights that make you highly visible to drivers, it also gives turn signals via illumination that is clearly noticeable to other road users. It looks futuristic but it’s quite comfy for wearing.
