4 November 2015


This week ONVZ Zorgverzekeraar, a Dutch health insurance company, announced the launch of an app which measures individual physical energy level. [in Dutch Nu.nl] This new app, called NRGY, is one of the first apps in the world that is capable of measuring your physical, mental, and emotional energy level, all within 90 seconds.

Emotional energy

FaceReader™ technology, used at over 400 universities/companies worldwide, provides insights into your emotional energy/vitality. ONVZ Zorgverzekeraar explains that for the first time that FaceReader technology is available directly in an app for consumers. Download the NRGY-app and experience it for yourself!

How it works

FaceReader technology measures six basic emotions. The NRGY app reads your face and the emotional values impact your overall energy level. Your heartbeat variation is also measured, and provides an indication of your physical capacities.

The moments of truth

Because the NRGY app gives you more insight in your energy level, you are made aware of it, and can change it! This is the moment of truth. Are you going to be the best you can be?!

Vitality Lab

This NRGY app is an initiative of the Vitality Lab, ONVZ Zorgverzekeraar. The new app has been designed in close cooperation with Lifeguard.
