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.

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.
