How technology has changed health and fitness

As technology develops, new advancements are changing our lives. Whether it's the way you access work outs, shop for food or track down health services, our approach to health and fitness is transforming.

With your Optus nbn™ connection, you can take care of your health and wellbeing without even leaving your front door.

Health information via the web

Most of us have at some point turned to the internet for answers. Most people have discovered health information by using a search engine or health site. These days you can check your symptoms, find a service or uncover medical and health facts in just a few clicks.

Fitness apps and devices

From intelligent yoga mats, body composition scales connected to your Optus nbn™ WiFi and wearable fitness trackers, there’s plenty of ways you can monitor and track your health effortlessly.

Online and home doctor visits

We're working longer hours, so it's getting harder to keep appointments within business hours. These days if you can't see your doctor at a practice, you can arrange for a billed video call. There are also services that allow bulk-billed home doctor consultations too.

Online fitness video channels

Strapped for time and don't have the money to spend on your own personal trainer? Browse hundreds of free workout resources available. You'll find that their routines require little equipment and are taught by well-known fitness instructors. Best part? You can get that gym workout out of the way from home.

Online mental health/therapy

Online therapy may be useful because you can do it at a time that suits you. It's also a handy service for people who live far away from mental health services but require regular sessions. It's also less confronting for some to have therapy this way, rather than face-to-face session with a counsellor or psychologist.

Online food shopping and meal services

With so much choice available, you can get a variety of healthy food delivered right to your door. There's fresh fruit, vegies and grocery services and meal services you can order anytime from your chosen device on your Optus nbn™ connection.
