SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Azoi, a technology company dedicated to helping people improve their lives, today announced Wello – an innovative health monitoring device embedded within a mobile phone case. With just a few powerful sensors, Wello fits onto a smartphone and measures a number of key vitals including blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, lung functions and more – with a high level of accuracy. Fast and easy-to-use, Wello empowers people to track key data, improve awareness of their body's state, and make more informed lifestyle choices.
"Over the last two years, we have focused our efforts on coming up with a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use tool to help you monitor health and facilitate better lifestyle choices," said Hamish Patel, founder and CEO at Azoi. "We are proud to introduce Wello - a not so small engineering feat in microelectronics, nanosensors, imaging, data analytics and design, that we hope will make a big difference in helping the world become a healthier place. We have effectively put health monitoring equipment, typically in large form factors, into a highly convenient and accessible mobile phone case."
Statistics about global health problems and the incidence of preventable diseases are all too familiar. According to the World Health Organization, heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide, hypertension afflicts nearly a billion people globally and 347 million people have diabetes. With simple, regular monitoring of health data, people are better equipped to identify potential issues and seek advice before they become serious illnesses.
"All too often, health problems go undetected until they are too late to address," continues Hamish. "We believe that through improved self-awareness of key vitals, technology could very easily reduce the incidence and impact of a wide range of illnesses and diseases. Not only could this help ensure healthier, happier lives, but it could also ease the growing burden on healthcare services."
Wello is the first ever device to allow you to measure and record your vitals from wherever you are. It conveniently slides onto a smartphone disguised as a case so you always have it with you. You simply hold it for a few moments while hidden sensors take measurements and pass on gathered information to the Wello app. Not only do you get instantaneous results and key data about your health, over time you'll see patterns that hopefully will help you take better care of yourself.
It also connects with other health and fitness devices such as pedometers and sleep trackers to help identify how different behaviors can affect one's bodily state. Furthermore, Wello provides safe and secure remote access - so it can be used to track the key vitals of family members too.
Pricing and Availability
Wello is available for pre-order in the United States as well as Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, the United Kingdom and across the European Union. Through Azoi's referral program, every purchaser gets a unique URL to share and when a Wello is ordered using that URL they will get a $10 credit. In the United States, Wello retails for $199 and will ship in fall 2014 pending FDA approval.
Azoi is a global technology company dedicated to helping people improve their lives. Founded in 2011, Azoi's team of designers, scientists, and thinkers draw from the world in which we live to create products that enhance our lives without getting in the way of living it. Wello, its first product, is a mobile health tracker disguised as a smartphone cover that quickly, accurately, and easily measures vitals instantaneously syncing the data to an accompanying iPhone or Android app. To learn more, visit www.azoi.com.
