Stayhealthy and Innovative Wellness Solutions Announce Partnership to Bring Innovation to the Workplace Wellness Market
Date:7/21/2009

BALTIMORE, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Stayhealthy, Inc., a leader in bringing advanced technologies and solutions to people that want to take control of their health, and Innovative Wellness Solutions a leader in bringing comprehensive proactive health solutions to employers announced that they have reached an agreement to bring a powerful new solution to employers as they strive to help their employees - "stay healthy."

Wellness in the workplace has become a mission for most employers. As healthcare costs continue to escalate, employers are increasingly focusing on strategies to keep their workers healthy. Stuart Sutley, founder and CEO of Baltimore-based Innovative Wellness Solutions, one of only 12 URAC accredited wellness companies in the United States, said, "Employers understand the importance of health benefits for their employees as a way to recruit and retain talent." While "health" is one of the most personal topics, employers want to bring tools and resources to their employees, (and dependents) that will help them attain their health goals.

The foundation for Stayhealthy's solution is "body composition" analysis. "With nearly 70% of the U.S. population defined as overweight - excess body fat is the number one factor driving the incidence and severity of the most costly and debilitating chronic health conditions," said Brian Baum, President of Stayhealthy. The reality is it is time to stop looking at total weight as a measure of health. The health risk factor lies in excess body fat, or the ratio of lean mass to body fat, not total "pounds." Stayhealthy provides tools and services that help people understand their specific health situation, establish personalized plans and monitor the progress as their body composition evolves to a healthy ratio of lean mass to body fat.

Stayhealthy's technology also measures individual hydration levels. As the majority of people are chronically under-hydrated, this is a very important measure to promoting health. Not only is under-hydration a barrier to losing weight, it is also a significant factor in everything from chronic headaches, fatigue, skin tone, hair texture and even memory loss. "Providing people with information that they can act on, that's the goal of Stayhealthy," said Baum.

"Employers are taking the point of view that we're all in this together. Sickness and accidents will happen, and that's what health benefits are for. However, there are steps that can be taken to reduce health risks. If we take those steps now, everyone comes out ahead," said Sutley. "Wellness programs are no longer a benefit or perk, they are a strategy that focuses on the entire population of a company and the culture that supports that organization."

Stayhealthy provides body composition analysis through a free standing self service - health assessment station or a handheld assessment device. In addition, other devices measure calorie burn 24 hours a day, meal planning and activity planning services that allow a complete, personalized solution for the user.

"We are excited to enter this relationship with Innovative Wellness Solutions. As debate on healthcare continues in Washington, employers and health benefits are a major focus. Changing how and who pays for care is only part of the challenge. Keeping people healthy - that is the long term solution," said Baum.
