SmartWatch®, a Wearable Monitoring and Alerting Product for Seizures, Tops in Patient Diagnostics and Management Category
SAN JOSE, Calif., January 14, 2014 — Smart Monitor, Corp., an innovative monitoring solutions provider for the healthcare and wellness markets, announced that its SmartWatch® product was named a winner in the Everyday Health Awards for Innovation in Digital Health at the 2014 International CES in Las Vegas. The SmartWatch took top honors in the Patient Diagnostics and Management category, which recognizes the best innovative digital health technologies that are revolutionizing the practice of patient care. Winners were announced January 9 during a special live award ceremony at the Digital Health Summit at CES.
Smart Monitor CEO Anoo Nathan accepts the Everyday Health Award at the International CES.
“We are thrilled that our SmartWatch wearable device has been recognized for the autonomy and peace of mind it brings to people prone to seizures, as well as their families,” said Anoo Nathan, CEO of Smart Monitor. “We are especially grateful to the many SmartWatch users, epilepsy community members, and other supporters who voted online for the SmartWatch. Their support is a key reason we were honored with this Everyday Health award.” SmartWatch is a patented and non-invasive wristwatch that continuously monitors the user and instantly alerts family members and caregivers at the onset of abnormal movement patterns. When the SmartWatch detects repetitive shaking motion, it signals the user’s Bluetooth-connected Android phone to send text and phone call alerts to designated contacts. SmartWatch captures and stores a broad range of data on every alerted event, including date, time, location, movement patterns and an audio recording. Data can be accessed by SmartWatch users via a secure web-based interface, and can also be shared and reviewed with physicians to help fine-tune medication regimens and other treatment details. While SmartWatch was initially developed for people prone to seizures, the device’s activity monitoring and reporting capabilities can be highly valuable in several other settings, including hospitals, skilled nursing/assisted living facilities and independent living/home health care environments. “Events such as falls and adverse drug reactions are a daily concern for anyone providing care to elders or people managing chronic conditions such as epilepsy or Parkinson’s,” said Nathan. “SmartWatch combines timely alerts and real-time data analytics that healthcare providers need to reduce these incidents, while also providing peace of mind for family and loved ones.” Nathan also added that the comprehensive analytics SmartWatch provides make it useful for clinical studies, especially those tracking the efficacy of drugs or devices for reducing convulsive motions caused by epilepsy or other disorders. The Everyday Health Awards for Innovation honor individuals, companies or organizations that are utilizing technology to design and engineer innovative products or services that help people or patients achieve better health outcomes, every day. In its inaugural year, the Awards received more than 140 entries across categories. Finalists were selected by a panel of distinguished experts in the digital health and wellness industry based upon innovation, impact, implementation and individuality. Consumers were then able to vote online for their favorite digital health innovation across the five award categories. Online voting accounted for 30 percent of the total score awarded to each product.
October 17, 2013 — Smart Monitor, Corp., an innovative monitoring solutions provider for the healthcare and wellness markets, announced today that its SmartWatch® product is now available to purchase through a monthly subscription plan. By drastically reducing the initial acquisition cost, Smart Monitor’s new subscription pricing makes SmartWatch more affordable than ever for potential users. “We aim to make it as easy and cost-effective as possible for anyone to own the SmartWatch,” said Anoo Nathan, CEO of Smart Monitor. SmartWatch is a patented, intelligent and non-invasive wristwatch that continuously monitors the user and instantly alerts family members and caregivers upon the onset of abnormal movement patterns. When the SmartWatch detects repetitive shaking motion, it signals the user’s Bluetooth-connected Android phone to send text and phone call alerts to whomever the SmartWatch user designates. Users can also summon help with a simple push of a “Help” button. Within seconds, family members receive the SmartWatch alerts, which include the date, time, location and duration of the event. Alerts can be sent to any phone, anywhere. SmartWatch automatically records movement patterns and other details of alerted events. These reports can be securely accessed for later review with physicians. With SmartWatch’s new subscription plan, users pay a one-time device activation fee, then a low monthly payment for service. SmartWatch subscriptions also include firmware and software upgrades, customer support, choice of watch band colors, and product warranty for as long as the account remains active. A new, intuitive user interface and “My SmartWatch” cloud portal will soon be available for all SmartWatch users as well. “So many people have told us how the SmartWatch has improved their daily lives by giving their families much-needed peace of mind,” said Nathan. “By keeping the initial acquisition cost low, our new subscription plans help make the SmartWatch as affordable as possible, while offering access to many new and exciting features.” About Smart Monitor Smart Monitor provides care management solutions for chronic health conditions.
