Kickstarter Crowd Funding Campaign Launched For HEALTHYWATCH, A Lifestyle Watch Designed To Help Make Daily Healthcare Easy.
Date:12/6/2016

GrekTek LLC, (http://www.grektek.com) an mHealth solutions provider, announced the launch of a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign (http://kck.st/2g3a1so) for the HealthyWatch, a new device to help patients manage their health by providing health active alerts and even taking an EKG from the watch while sharing these events with caregivers in real time.

“One feature our patients love is medication management; it’s so important for patients to take their meds on time and not skip or take double dosages,” said Greg Eoyang, GrekTek, LLC President, “But often patients forget and caregivers don’t know if the patient has already taken their medication or not. HealthyWatch reminds the patient when to take their medication and tracks when they take it so that caregivers and patients know what to do. This is especially valuble when there are multiple caregivers for a single patient!”

The first 200 backers of the GrekTek’s Kickstarter campaign can receive a beta version 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.

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 and sick.”

Created by Greg Eoyang, Tom Klaff, Matthew O. Jones, MD, and G. Stuart Mendenhal,l MD, a combination of experienced caregivers, entrepreneurs and visionary cardiologists, HeathyWatch is a revolutionary solution to help provide sustainable care for loved ones.
