BlipCare Launches The Next Generation Wireless Weight Scale That Reminds Users To Take Their Readings
Date:11/27/2012

CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BlipCare is proud to announce the launch of a new personal Wi-Fi weight scale. The BlipCare Wi-Fi Weight Scale is the first weight scale that provides reminders to keep the user on track. The user simply programs the time they prefer to step on the scale, and the scale will make a beeping sound and will light up until the weight is taken.

Key features include:

  • Tracks weight and body mass for up to 10 users
  • Provides goal setting features and easy-to-read data charts
  • Features a reminder system using illuminated buttons and audible beeps

The Blip Wi-Fi Weight Scale is especially useful for those taking an active role in their own health or those of patients, friends or family members, including aging parents. Whenever the user steps on the scale, the scale stores the reading with a time stamp and transmits it to the user's account over their home Wi-Fi network. The user or their caretaker can now track, chart and trend the data from anywhere.

Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and can help prevent and/or control many diseases and conditions. "We felt the need for a simple and accurate weight scale that a user could use anywhere and take control of their weight without worrying about connectivity issues," said Dr. Sukhwant Khanuja, CEO and founder of BlipCare. "We look forward to developing other easy-to-use wellness products to meet the growing demand for personal monitoring."

According to the National Alliance for Caregiving, more than 65 million people or 29% of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year.

"The Blip Wi-Fi Scale allows me to take a more active role in my father's health since I live out of town," explained Kapil Singh. "I have created automated e-mail updates that notify me if he does not take a weight reading or if his weight starts to decline. I can then e-mail the customized report to his doctor who can review the data and determine if any follow-up action is necessary."

Unlike other scales, the Blip Wi-Fi Scale also provides accurate weight readings on carpets. "We realized that in order to provide the most precise weight reading, simply stepping on the scale was not enough," said Khanuja. "So we designed our scales to work in different environments yet consistently providing accurate readings."

The Blip Scale also features kick-buttons, which allow multiple users to use the scale. With two primary user kick buttons and the guest button, the scale can track data for up to 10 users.

About the Blip Scale

The Blip Scale is available for $99.00 USD. It comes with a life time of free monitoring service. The Blip Wi-Fi Weight Scale has also been launched on Indiegogo (www.indiegogo.com).
