Intelligent Health, a health-tech startup aiming to get the UK more active, has announced a £200k crowdfunding round on Seedrs in a bid to become a leader in tackling inactivity.

The World Health Organisation states that inactivity is the fourth leading cause of death globally, while in England 29 per cent of adults are inactive. This level has a direct link to obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Intelligent Health uses technology and behaviour change theory to tackle the social causes of ill health, which is led by Dr William Bird MBE who created ‘Health Walks’ and the ‘Green Gym’.

He commented: "At Intelligent Health, we know why moving matters and how active people connect to bring health, happiness and a sense of purpose.

"We look to establish the best ways to connect people with each other and take control of their health, so crowdfunding with Seedrs was an obvious choice to help grow the company. We have a clear vision to create active vibrant communities and we have set ambitious and motivating targets to help us achieve this."
