NEW DELHI: Azoi, a technology company, has launched Wello, a mobile phone case that also functions as a health monitoring device. The case priced at Rs 12,350 is available for pre-order on the company’s website and will ship starting August.
Wello includes sensors that can measure a number of key vitals including blood pressure, electrocardiography (ECG), heart rate, blood oxygen, temperature, and lung functions, among others.
Wello slides onto a smartphone disguised as a case and users simply need to hold it for a few moments while hidden sensors take measurements and pass on gathered information to the Wello app. In addition to offering instant results and key data, the app also collates key patterns to allow users to track their fitness.
Wello case also connects with other health and fitness devices such as pedometers and sleep trackers to help identify how different behaviors can affect the user’s health.
“Over the last two years, we have focused our efforts on coming up with a technologically advanced yet easy-to-use tool to help you monitor health and facilitate better lifestyle choices,” said Hamish Patel, founder and CEO at Azoi. “We are proud to introduce Wello – a not so small engineering feat in microelectronics, nanosensors, imaging, data analytics and design, that we hope will make a big difference in helping the world become a healthier place. We have effectively put health monitoring equipment, typically in large form factors, into a highly convenient and accessible mobile phone case.”
“All too often, health problems go undetected until they are too late to address,” continues Hamish. “We believe that through improved self-awareness of key vitals, technology could very easily reduce the incidence and impact of a wide range of illnesses and diseases. Not only could this help ensure healthier, happier lives, but it could also ease the growing burden on healthcare services.”
