Features of FITCOP

FITCOP was developed on the underlying schema of 3 Ds – Diagnose, Develop and Do where every unit officer will be diagnosed.

Based on the medical parameters, the foundation develops a road map to get rid of the medical comorbidities and maps them to a dietician, physical training instructor or counsellor or doctor through in-app chat/call service.

The daily physical activity and the progress made by the staff are translated into a digital dashboard and supervised by officers.
