3D Social Media Application Aims to Cut Workplace Obesity : Muve, Inc., Selects Social Media Developer Wyndstorm Corporation to Design Online Promotions for Corporate Wellness Program
Date:10/7/2008

Wyndstorm Corporation (www.wyndstorm.com) (OTCBB:WYND), the ideas-to-revenues social media company, announced a key win with Muve, Inc. (www.muveinc.com), to create an interactive marketing plan program design to promote Muve's activity-based corporate wellness program. Wyndstorm's design project will ultimately help Muve's corporate clients foster the use of wellness programs among employees via interactive messaging, rewards programs, tips, challenges, games and contests.

WASHINGTON (Business Wire EON) October 7, 2008 -- Corporate wellness programs are growing in popularity due to the high cost of health insurance for employers. Sixty percent of U.S. citizens are obese, and of those, 50 percent are morbidly obese. The United States Department of Health and the National Institutes of Health estimate that the annual obesity cost to American companies exceeds $122.9 billion. In response, Mayo Medical Ventures founded Minneapolis-based Muve to design, develop and deliver new tools and technology for obesity and weight management.

"Obesity is at epidemic proportions in the American workplace, sending employer healthcare costs spiraling," said Muve CEO and Wyndstorm Director Tom Hudson. "The Muve program helps people manage weight loss. Consistent commitment and long-term participation are key to helping Muve users successfully achieve weight management and healthy lifestyle changes. To help us achieve our goals, we are leveraging Wyndstorm to design a low-cost, fully featured new media program based on innovative interactive and multi-media communications to attract and retain users."

"Muve has a goal to reverse the obesity epidemic in the United States and globally," said Wyndstorm CEO Marian Sabety. "To successfully achieve this mission, outreach must be effective, lifestyle education must be easy, and reinforcement must be fun. Wyndstorm is pleased to contribute to this important undertaking. Applying our experience in social media technologies and online promotions will enable us to design innovative online engagement that incorporates interactive entertainment for creative programming so Muve users are encouraged and supported."
