We’re on a mission to empower millions of people to make lifestyle changes that last a lifetime.
We are Changing Health
adults are now overweight or obese. (That’s 25% of the global population).
economic burden as a result of the overweight global population.
If current trends continue, 3.2 billion people, or 38% of the population will be overweight or obese by 2030, creating a crippling economic impact.
It started in the lab
With over 100 peer reviewed published papers and collaborations with Newcastle University, Southampton University, the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Medical Research Council (MRC) and Diabetes UK, our founding team are at the forefront of lifestyle change innovation.
Co-founder Professor Mike Trenell co-authored the randomised clinical trial Movement as Medicine for Type 2 Diabetes that created the framework in which Changing Health programmes are built. With IP and licenses from these leading studies, Changing Health is able to provide an unparalleled evidence base that is helping to set the standard in digital therapeutics.
The science turned digital
Changing Health is able to provide en masse highly personal and relevant evidence based education and lifestyle coaching, leading to cost effective scale, with a sustained positive impact. Driven by our own artificial intelligence (AI) engine, users can receive education and support based on their needs and preferences.
Then we got personal
As great as AI is, everyone is unique, with their own story, background, goals and dreams. Psychologists know that in order for a behaviour change intervention to create lasting impact, the techniques must be based on a myriad of factors that are developed around a trusted relationship.
As such, each of our programmes are unique to the psychology of the condition and person, each user receives a personal experience from their coach based on their own goals and background.
Now it's about real world data
From tracking a user's movement, to randomised clinical trials and auditing our NHS sites, Changing Health is focused on showing the real world impact of it’s programmes.
However, beyond the studies, we’re improving people’s lives and showing that conditions like Type 2 diabetes can be put into remission in as little as 10 weeks.

White paper: Why user centricity must live at the heart of healthcare technology
Apps, wearables, chatbot diagnostics, voice assistant therapies and other technologies are transforming the delivery of healthcare. The opportunities to improve health outcomes are now boundless – but those opportunities will be missed if we lose sight of the user’s own needs.
This white paper covers areas such as:
- Ways to improve user retention by building with your users’ wants, needs and limitations front of mind
- How agile principles and co-creation with users will keep your technology accessible for everyone, regardless of age or technical confidence
- Hear from industry leaders from organisations including NHS England, NHSX, 10 Downing Street and The Institute for Customer Service
