BodyMedia Partners with HealthSpot Remote Care Clinics to Drive Health Improvements
Date:2/21/2012

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BodyMedia, Inc., a leader in wearable body monitors designed for health and wellness, today announced a strategic partnership with HealthSpot, Inc., an Ohio-based health and technology company providing medical kiosks for community-based remote care. The agreement enables healthcare professionals offering videoconference consultations through HealthSpot Care4 Stations to recommend BodyMedia FIT armband-based body monitoring systems to help patients improve their diets, become more active, and get more sleep, all of which can have positive health impacts. BodyMedia armbands will also be sold at retail stores that have HealthSpot kiosks to make it easy for consumers to follow practitioners' advice.

The HealthSpot Care4 Station is a fully enclosed kiosk that uses real-time high-definition videoconferencing to connect patients to healthcare providers in convenient neighborhood settings like pharmacies, supermarkets and workplaces. HealthSpot is developing a network of healthcare partners that include doctors as well as nutritionists and wellness coaches.

BodyMedia FIT armbands track calories burned, steps taken, level of physical activity and sleep patterns that affect health and weight, utilizing a proprietary four-sensor system that collects 5,000 data points per minute. Companion software stores that information, allows users to set goals and document daily food intake, and recommends activity and dietary adjustments based on each user's weight and fitness goals, actual calorie expenditure and food intake for the day.

"Physicians traditionally have had few behavioral modification tools to help patients make lifestyle changes. Our BodyMedia FIT armband system meets that need," said Christine Robins, BodyMedia CEO. "Now healthcare professionals participating in the HealthSpot kiosk program can offer a solution that requires no prescription and has been clinically proven to help patients make positive changes to live healthier lives."

"Our kiosks enable affordable, face-to-face medical consultations without an office visit. The challenge is how to help patients help themselves and stay on track once the doctor's visit is complete," said HealthSpot CEO Steve Cashman. "Partnering with BodyMedia gives us a way to answer that challenge, encourage change, and track the results."

HealthSpot will be demonstrating its Care4 Station with digital medical equipment at the 2012 HIMSS health IT conference and exhibition in Las Vegas in Sprint booth #3055.
