Power to the people

  1. 1. POWER TO THE PEOPLE Health tele-Coaching by automated HRV (heart rate variability) transmission and nutritional and activity feedback 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 Financed provided the participants of the study get the device for free! http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/health-tele-coaching-by-nutritional-and-activity- feedback/x/3396330 http://www.indiegogo.com/individuals/4286066/x/3396330#_=_ http://www.imi-health-technology.com/
