The Evaleo response

EVALEO provides a sustainable health solution allowing the optimal management of all prevention and health promotion activities on a daily basis and makes them accessible to all.

The sustainable health concept sets itself apart by its field approach to prevention and promotion. It is aimed at the population as a whole, cities, companies and sustainable health professionals.

Evaleo offers a sustainable health management system (SHMS) for cities and organisations (companies, etc.). It occupies an essential and complementary segment in the range of health and prevention services.

Many of the principles and approaches employed by EVALEO stem from or have been tested in the field of elite sport which possesses undeniable experience and skills in the field of salutogenesis1. These principles and approaches have also been tested on different types of people (disabled, sedentary, post-operatory, etc.) and are adapted to all.

The Evaleo approach, which combines innovative and ancestral knowledge in the field of health, allows one and all to obtain sustainable and qualitative results through the acquisition of skills essential for the management of all the principal health-related factors.

This approach is not limited to the fields of physical activity, nutrition and stress management but includes the fields of management, the environment, art and culture, amongst others. For this reason, the development of sustainable health touches multiple domains (sport, social development, sustainable development, economic and touristic development, training and education, art and culture, etc.).

The undeniable advantage of the sustainable health management system is that it can be adapted to existing organisms and structures that already offer or wish to offer sustainable health services.

1. The concept of salutogenesis was developed by the Israeli American professor of medical sociology, Aaron Antonovsky (1923-1994). It came about from a critical reflection on the existing health system, orientated towards illness. Antonovsky asked himself: “Why do human beings stay in good health in spite of certain unfavourable conditions and events in their lives?”. The concept of salutogenesis, based around health rather than illness, was developed from this new point of view.

In this concept, health and illness are not mutually exclusive states; rather they are the extremities of two poles existing within a whole. For Antonovsky, health is not the result of balance, but is created from a dynamic interaction between factors of stress and protection. This means that health must always be recreated and maintained between challenges and solutions.
