VivaLnk, a growing powerhouse in wearable telehealth devices, announced Monday what’s new — Vital Scout, a Band-Aid sized wearable patch that “simplifies how consumers monitor their physical and mental health.”
The patch, we’re told, uses multiple sensors including electrocardiogram (ECG) measurement to continuously monitor heart rate and other critical body functions, which consumers can track in real-time via their smartphone or tablet.
VivaLnk says it will be demonstrating its family of digital health products, including Vital Scout and Fever Scout, at CES booth #74254 this week in Las Vegas.
According to a recent survey by Havas Worldwide, nearly half, or 45 percent, of U.S. consumers favor digital devices that monitor “every aspect” of their physical health.
“When it comes to consumer health, and understanding what’s happening with our bodies, accuracy is vital,” said Jiang Li, CEO of VivaLnk. “Whether an individual has a high-stress job, a health issue he wants to monitor, or he’s just being proactive, Vital Scout provides a true, real-time assessment of stress levels, sleep, exercise and recovery — letting consumers take charge of their health.”
