POWER TO THE PEOPLE
Health tele-Coaching by automated HRV (heart rate variability) transmission and nutritional and
IMI has developed a nutrition and fitness monitoring system that - based on scientific evidence, - and
by implementing modern information technologies can coach individuals on a day to day basis. The
IMI health coaching system uses HRV recordings transmitted to a central server by mobile phones, to
provide an information service to healthy persons and patients.
Nutrition and activity have a major impact on health and fitness. Increasing the individuals interest in
balanced (healthy) nutrition and physical activity can contribute to public health by reducing diseases
associated with nutrition like diabetes, obesity, etc.
Mobile Health empowers larger population segments (including developing countries) to participate
in quality healthcare. Already by the end of 2011 millions of patients worldwide used a home
monitoring service based on equipment with integrated connectivity to a central service, the demand
is rapidly growing.
Empowerment: One idea of providing such a service is to give people back responsibility and ability
to do basic checks of the most important vital factors – the power to know more about the own
body and to take conscious decisions based on this information. The knowledge and a continuously
high awareness is good but certainly not enough – people need advice and the ability to influence
their body/health in a positive way. That’s why the service offers different strategies for positive
impacts on the body/health (nutrition, exercises, etc.)
Gerhard Lingg as inventor and passionate preacher of alternative approaches to keep people healthy
went for patents and eventually found the right companies and 3rd party providers to produce hard
and software that built the solid ground for one of the first integrated mHealth services worldwide.
Now, after 12 years of development, the smartphone with the integrated metabalancer, the so called
UBW phone is the device that, together with the server infrastructure, covers the ideas and the
vision of Gerhard Lingg.
We need $ 200,000 for the preparation of the first 2000 Mobilefone
After successful short term studies, we plan to recruit and observe about 2000 Participants for one
year to observe how the system is accepted under "everyday life" condition. The successfully
the participants of the study get the device for free!
