CHICAGO – November 19, 2013 – Vancive Medical Technologies today announced a collaboration with Medisana AG to bring exciting lifestyle health and wellness management products to Europe.
A leader in the health, wellness and homecare markets for over 30 years, Medisana® offers a wide portfolio of products, including blood pressure monitors, baby monitors, and fitness trackers. These products can help people monitor their own state of health independently and conscientiously and practice health and wellness care without significant risk. Medisana®, a vital healthcare partner of Deutsche Telekom AG, was recently honored by the European Commission as one of the leading eHealth companies for their VitaDock® product line.
“Medisana® has a unique understanding of consumer health and lifestyle management, which, combined with their expertise in mobile health, gives us an advantage in key markets in Europe”, said Howard Kelly, president and general manager, Vancive Medical Technologies. “Together we will leverage these strengths, to offer a portfolio of Metria™ Informed Health products to help European consumers manage their health, wellness and lifestyle proactively.”
The first offering of this collaboration for the German and other European markets will be the Metria IH1, a lifestyle assessment system designed to collect and report multiple parameters, including activity, activity levels, sleep and calorie expenditure. These lifestyle parameters will be integrated into Medisana®’s care portal to help consumers understand and manage their lifestyles better.
“The notion of health pervades all areas of our company,” said Ralf Lindner, CEO of Medisana®. “We develop specialized, easy to use and high quality products to allow consumers to be proactive with their health. We are confident that our collaboration with Vancive Medical Technologies in offering the Metria Informed Health products will continue to help Medisana® be a leading provider of eHealth solutions for wellness and lifestyle applications.”
