East Riding Libraries and Customer Services launch Boditrax in five locations
Date
Thu, 24 Feb 2022
Description

Staff are encouraged to spread the word to friends and family about the launch of Boditrax in East Riding Libraries.

Whilst staff are able to access this service through the Live Well Work Well scheme, other residents throughout the East Riding of Yorkshire are now able to access the service for free through membership of East Riding Libraries.

This service, the first of its kind for libraries in the UK, will provide an initial consultation,  where customers will use Boditrax, a medically approved body analyser, to complete a full-body composition scan. From these results, the library team will discuss the five points of physical health that can indicate the user's current level of wellbeing.

The private and confidential scan will provide 20 different measurements of health and fitness, to be viewed and tracked on the free Boditrax app.

Users can choose to come back for consultations over 12 weeks to review their progress.

Library staff will discuss the free resources and facilities available for customers to access, and advise on a path to help users achieve their goals. Following a Healthy Chat, staff may suggest East Riding Libraries groups and activities, self-help programmes, access to East Riding Leisure facilities, Walking for Health, and much more.

One of the key benefits available to members is access to Oviva, a bespoke 12-week weight management and nutrition service, only available through referral. It provides access to personalised one-to-one support, peer group chats, and continuous free lifetime access to the Oviva app.

Should you or someone you know be interested in the launch of the Boditrax service in East Riding Libraries, a number of 'open days' are being held at each of the libraries offering the service on the dates below. You're invited to attend any of these events and see an example of this pioneering technology being used and hear about how this service provides numerous benefits to residents within our community, whilst being accessible for free through library memberships.
