Smart Monitor Wins Everyday Health Award for Innovation in Digital Health at 2014 International CES
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
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 (News - Alert) 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.
"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. Thir 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 (News - Alert) phone to send text and phone call alerts to designated contacts.
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
"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.
