The platform will feature customised content on five pillars of wellbeing including personal growth, exercise and relationships
Lake Nona, one of America’s fastest-growing communities, is to use the Jiyo smart cities Internet of Wellbeing platform to address the health and wellbeing of its residents holistically.
The platform has been created by Dr Deepak Chopra, a pioneer in integrative medicine and best-selling author. Through the partnership, Lake Nona residents will have exclusive access to a Lake Nona version of the Jiyo platform with customised content focused on five pillars of wellbeing including personal growth, exercise, nutrition, sleep, and relationships, as well as insights from leading experts, including Dr Chopra.
Orlando’s Lake Nona is one of the fastest-growing communities in America with more than 10 million square feet of residential and commercial facilities. The 17-square-mile community is home to thoughtfully designed neighbourhoods, education facilities, a health and life sciences cluster and a sports and performance district. It is committed to building an innovative community that “inspires human potential” while being focused on sustainable design, healthy living and gigabit fibre optic technology.
It will take an integrated approach to using digital technologies to connect its residents to information and events that improve health and wellbeing, as well as provide enhanced insights, analytics and support to help promote a higher quality of life.
“Lake Nona has offered us the unique opportunity to create the internet of wellbeing, the global brain for creating a more peaceful, sustainable, healthier and more joyful world,” said Dr Chopra,
Known for its innovative approaches to community health and wellbeing and often called a “living lab,” Lake Nona is also the current focus of a longitudinal study by Johnson & Johnson Health & Wellness Solutions known as the Lake Nona Life Project, which aims to better understand how communities work and the factors that lead to better overall health and wellbeing.
Last fall, Lake Nona also debuted the first healthy home, WHIT, a wellness home built on innovation and technology.
“Lake Nona has created a really unique environment for companies looking to innovate in the healthcare and wellbeing arenas, which provides our residents with unprecedented opportunities and access to unique events, studies and platforms like Jiyo,” said Gloria Caulfield, executive director of the Lake Nona Institute and vice president of strategic alliances at Tavistock Development Company.
“We want Lake Nona to be a place where you have every opportunity to be your best self, to perform at your best, and Lake Nona’s Jiyo platform will provide our community with another amazing tool to accomplish that.”
The Lake Nona Institute is a non-profit, community-focused organisation that incubates, activates and measures the impact of innovative technologies and programmes that can become global models for building healthy, sustainable and inspired communities.
