Singapore-based Healthtech Startup Smartfuture Deploys Health Screening Kiosks in Offices to Curb Rising Diabetes and Hypertension
24th October 2018 – Over 26 self-monitoring health check-up kiosks have been installed by Smartfuture in offices across Singapore since March this year. Employees in these offices use the kiosks to check key health metrics such as BMI, blood pressure, blood glucose, and ECG. They receive personalised diet and fitness recommendations via the kiosk or the associated mobile App. They can tele-consult fitness trainers or nutritionist, and call a wellness provider to their office or home for a 1-to-1 session. Employers receive a secured dashboard to view summarised health and wellness metrics of their workforce.
“Number of cases of diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and mental illness is on the rise and there is a strong correlation to unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle at the workplace. Through regular checks of vitals, increased awareness and teleconsultation with wellness providers, employees will build long-term and sustainable habits to live a healthy lifestyle,” says Sumit Khemani, Chief Executive Officer of Smartfuture. “The effects of healthy, fitter and motivated employees will provide business benefits to the company.”
Smartfuture’s vision is to deploy 5000 such kiosks across Singapore by the end of 2019, and to get 300,000 users to move towards a more active, healthy and productive lifestyle. The kiosk encourages eating well, exercise, mindfulness and healthy lifestyle habits at work and home, leading to healthier living and reduced costs to individuals and companies.
