Healthbot Kiosk

Free and personal blood pressure checks and more.

The Healthbot Kiosk is easy to use, letting you personally check your Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, Weight and BMI and track your progress, if you like.

Know Your Numbers

Blood pressure and weight are important numbers when it comes to health. High Blood Pressure and excessive weight can lead to health issues, causing heart disease, stroke and more. Fortunately, if you know your numbers, you can make changes to improve blood pressure and fitness level. Use the Healthbot anonymously as a guest or create an account to track and view your user history.

The City of Akron does not have access to your results. Historical data is available for an employee at any point at the kiosk or by signing into their secure account on the Healthbot website. Please visit www.healthbot.com to learn how this self-monitoring Health Station can incentivize healthier behavior and measure your results. You are encouraged to share these numbers with your physician to assist in overall health assessment.

  •  Municipal Building, 3rd floor outside City Council Chambers
  • Police Division – Stubbs Building Roll Call Room – 4th Floor
