Shiyi is proud to announce the completion of the MyChi non-wearable device prototype. MyChi is the world's first food therapy smart assistant, consisting of the MyChi smart device (a small chip) and app. The user just places the MyChi device under the pillow before bed and the MyChi tracks sleep patterns and delivers customized holistic health lifestyle suggestions right to the user’s phone in the morning.
MyChi applies TCM Meridian Organ Clock theory (which is used in acupuncture practice) to identify the body’s weaknesses and imbalances, turning this into actionable daily advice including a food therapy based eating plan, acupressure points and exercise recommendations. The MyChi app also contains thousands of food therapy recipes, more than 100 therapeutic foods to help with common symptoms, and seasonal eating guides. MyChi is unique among wearable and non-wearable health technologies, combining the best of ancient wisdom with cutting edge technology, and the best of east and west as well.
Cofounder Anna Na explains the history of MyChi, “The creation of MyChi is based on our own experiences. My partner Sophia Ma has had great success with several IT ventures and happily became a mother in 2012. She followed an eating plan based on TCM food therapy and was amazed at her speedy recovery after her baby’s birth. This sparked her interest in bringing food therapy principals to a larger audience. I experienced serious health problems due to the stress of my busy lifestyle as an IT professional eight years ago. I was healed with the help of traditional Chinese medicine and began to study TCM food therapy. Both of us believe that TCM food therapy can bring modern people health in a natural way. But people have no time to study it, so we found an easy way to help people apply the principals in daily life.”
"David Li is the father of the Chinese maker movement; he founded the first makerspace in China and is well known for his work on open innovation in smart hardware. David offered the technology expertise to develop the MyChi device and app."
Shiyi will launch an Indiegogo campaign next month to start mass production and get feedback from potential users. Whole food and holistic health lovers can visit http://www.shiyiku.com and subscribe to the newsletter for details and information updates on the MyChi food therapy smart assistant.
