A device for people to measure their own biological age, the pace at which they are aging and the relevance to their health. The device would have an interconnected interface for people to share their data and compare it to others, and it would provide advice for actions they can take to improve their health and slow down their aging process.
A bio-aging tracker would increase public awareness of the aging process, and provide personalized consultation to every individual, thus helping increase accessibility of effective treatments. The collected and shared data could help accelerate drug development and approval processes, and would contribute to the eventual development of a unified theory of aging. Finally, as people become more aware of their health, they would be able to take better care of themselves, thus postponing the emergence of aging-related diseases.
