It is a lifestyle device that helps you live with dignity and community, not a humiliating medical device that brands you as old or sick.
Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) November 30, 2016
GrekTek LLC, a health solutions provider, today announced the launch of a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign for the HealthyWatch, a new device to help the chronically ill stay on their care plans by collecting health data and managing medications while sharing that data with caregivers.
For many, getting older may mean increasingly looming, often scary, health issues. The GrekTek HealthyWatch solution, designed for patients to wear and use daily, helps them address their medical needs without having a imposing medical feel to it.
The first 200 backers of the GrekTek’s Kickstarter campaign can receive a beta of the HealthyWatch as a perk in time for the holidays, for their parents and loved ones living with chronic health needs. The HealthyWatch beta program will generate critical feedback from patients and caregivers that will be incorporated into the production versions.
“We all know how to stay healthy,” said Greg Eoyang, GrekTek, LLC President, “But how many of us actually do it? If patients don’t like it or don’t know how to use the solution, they just wont! Especially for those with a chronic illness, not taking your meds, watching your diet, or monitoring your vitals can have serious consequences.”
By packaging the solution into a friendly digital watch, the device looks both familiar and attractive. This watch is high-tech without being complicated, contains the latest sensors, including heart rate and EKGs and is connected to your care team through your mobile phone.
“HealthyWatch is designed to fit into patients’ lives, helping patients address their chronic diseases while getting interactive support from their caregivers and doctors,” said Tom Klaff, GrekTek CEO. “It is a lifestyle device that helps you live with dignity and community, not a humiliating medical device that brands you as old or sick.”
Created by Greg Eoyang, Tom Klaff, Matthew O. Jones, MD, and G. Stuart Mendenhall, MD, a combination of experienced caregivers, entrepreneurs and visionary cardiologists, HeathyWatch is a revolutionary solution to help provide sustainable care for loved ones.
