New Stayhealthy Body Composition Technology Announced at Microsoft's Connected Health Conference
Date:6/11/2009

BELLEVUE, Wash., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a two-year clinical study at the University of Southern California, Stayhealthy introduced their next generation body composition analysis technology at Microsoft's Connected Health Conference. The technology accurately measures body composition, comes in various forms depending on the need - from a home use individual device, to a commercial grade device for physicians, fitness and nutrition professionals, to a comprehensive freestanding, self-service health assessment kiosk - and is capable of uploading data directly into Microsoft HealthVault.

Body composition, the measurement of actual body fat and lean mass has long been recognized as the most effective means of managing health, fitness and risk factors. Generally people look at absolute weight in setting diet or exercise goals, which ultimately leads to the loss of both fat and lean mass. Unfortunately, the majority of people who do lose weight tend to regain the lost weight in the form of fat. This starts a spiral where the efficiency of their body and ability to burn calories effectively is reduced and therefore it becomes increasingly difficult to manage weight and by extension health.

"At a time when our nation faces a healthcare crisis driven by excess weight and obesity, we are excited to introduce the Stayhealthy Body Composition Analysis technology," said John Collins, CEO of Stayhealthy. "By providing this technology we hope to help millions of people track their body compositions and make positive adjustments as necessary."

Stayhealthy's Body Composition Analysis technology incorporates two key elements - a physical data collection device that utilizes bio-impedance technology, and a proprietary server-based algorithm that analyzes the data collected at the device and provides a precise body composition reading via the internet back to the user's computer.
