Omic Updates September 2020
New User Interface
With feedback from the beta program over the last year, Omic has a new design, which we’ve been working on for the last 6 months. With the new design, we’ve doubled down on the core concept of using wearables information to automate the fundamentals of Cindy’s functional practice. The updated Omic focus is “Host Health” analyses for clients with wearables data. There is less emphasis on viral alerts and citizen science, where Oura, Fitbit, Apple & Amazon are investing and delivering results, with more emphasis on delivering genuine personalised and evidence-based interventions.
iOS app for Apple Watch in progress
The core of Omic is a diagnostic and treatment analysis engine for Host Health, as an alternative (or complement) for those not satisfied with the health odds playing whack-a-mole. Omic is on the road to having an IOS app which will bring new medical content and capabilities to a wider audience who already have Apple Watches. We expect to publish the new app in the Apple Store in September.
There are lots of wearables pitched at the wellness market with varying degrees of usefulness, but the investment in medical data wearables is now fierce. As a device agnostic provider of personalized medical content, we like better access to better data.
We’re very interested in a medical wearable coming out of a Stanford University startup, which provides access to raw data and bypasses the commercial interest roadblocks with big-tech company big-data. Stanford’s Sensomic wrist strap devices arrive next week for us to get started with.
There is a new apple watch coming out in a couple of weeks, which will be supported by the new Omic iOS app.
The new Amazon device is cheap, but the listening in on your every conversation thing isn’t for everyone. Insurance companies in the US are providing these “free” providing you sign over all your data. It will perhaps come as a remarkable coincidence to some when their medical and income insurance gets terminated prior to a medical event!
The new Fitbit sounds more useful now it supports HRV. Samsung is still at the lifestyle end of the wearables market along with a whole host of others.
As biohackers, self-awareness and objectivity are important. One of us found a pattern of Wednesday night sleep undermining strength training on Thursday e.g. a 10% drop in readiness/sleep drops the achievable safety bar weight by 5kg. Glenn and Cindy are investigating a boost of Taurine, Inositol and a type of magnesium to help. To complement Amino acids and carb rinsing, we’re also investigating HMB, which helps muscular recovery and strength. Cindy indicates this is best for those with muscle loss and not as important for those with good muscle.

Why do we do Omic?
Personal experience of health success underpins those interested in personalized medicine. There are many notables in www.a4m.com and elsewhere working against the odds on behalf of patients e.g. Michael Snyder from Stanford University is leading the charge: https://onezero.medium.com/meet-the-worlds-most-bio-tracked-man-2077758cf5a2
